Hollywood Does Politics: A Conclusion

Thanks to everyone who kept up with our fourth series, "Hollywood Does Politics" - we hope you've enjoyed it.

So what did we learn?

For starters, accuracy isn't the first concern Hollywood has when making poltical movies - entertainment is. We also found out that so far political movies tend to lean left more often than right.

The last thing we discovered was exactly what made a good political campaign movie: the right combination of accuracy, entertainment value, and deeper lessons. Movies like "Primary Colors" - which came out as #1 on our Top 5 Political Campaign Movies list yesterday - have just the right amount of each factor.

Thanks again for following the series, and keep reading for more great series in the future!
