What the Critics say
Ilan Preskovsky As it is, The Front Runner is a very solid bit of political drama but it lacks the resonance and relevance to make it a must-see for anyone but junkies of American political history.
Tomatometer The Front Runner exhumes the wreckage of a political campaign with well-acted wit, even if it neglects to truly analyze the issues it raises.
