A Bolivian presidential candidate failing badly in the polls enlists the firepower of an elite American management team, led by the deeply damaged but still brilliant strategist "Calamity" Jane Bodine (Bullock). In self-imposed retirement following a scandal that earned her nickname and rocked her to her core, Jane is coaxed back into the game for the chance to beat her professional nemesis, the loathsome Pat Candy (Thornton), now coaching the opposition. But as Candy zeroes in on every vulnerability—both on and off the campaign trail—Jane is plunged into a personal crisis as intense as the one her team exploits nationally to boost their numbers. Dramatic, rapid-fire and laced with satire, Our Brand is Crisis reveals the cynical machinations and private battles of world-class political consultants for whom nothing is sacred and winning is all that matters.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Our Brand Is Crisis offers sporadic amusement and benefits from a talented cast, but ultimately lacks enough of a bite to add much of interest to the political satire genre.
London Evening Standard
Bullock is hilarious as well as unsettling in the lead.

There's nothing new about the political smoke-and-mirrors; the Bullock/Thornton relationship fails...

Too light, too silly.

Fascinating but uneven political drama has strong language.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Our Brand Is Crisis stars Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton in a behind-the-scenes look at how political campaigns are conducted -- a cutthroat, cynical, play-dirty, intense affair that might be too heavy for younger viewers. Expect swearing ("f--k," "s--t" and more), as well as some sexual references (including to masturbation), trash-talking, yelling, and scenes showing police clashing with protestors. Characters, including some supposedly on the wagon, drink, sometimes to excess, and smoke.
