Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A soft political satire that proves frustratingly less than the sum of its talented parts, Irresistible is anything but.

Common Sense Says
Jon Stewart's profane political comedy lands a bit softly.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Irresistible is an election comedy directed by Jon Stewart that pokes fun at both of the United States' main political parties. It takes place after Donald Trump's victory over Hilary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race and is about the cutthroat, manipulative behavior of political strategists (Steve Carell, Rose Byrne) who will do whatever it takes to win an election of any size. The idea here is that the D.C. political operatives are vile -- they curse (expect frequent use of "f--k" and lots more), argue viciously, and use crude sexual language, as well as treat locals condescendingly. The small-town Wisconsin residents are portrayed as kind but not rubes or hicks. Characters drink at a bar, and one smokes/vapes. A couple makes out in an over-the-top way. The film has a notable lack of diversity.
