Editorial Reviews

Do politics matter in Hollywood? Does Hollywood matter in politics? And either way, has "Movie City" really become as left-wing as we all think? The AMC Project presents RATED R: REPUBLICANS IN HOLLYWOOD, a slyly provocative and revelatory exposé on the myths behind "liberal Hollywood" and the stigmas attached with being in its conservative contingent. Intelligently directed by former Democratic speechwriter Jesse Moss (the award-winning filmmaker behind Speedo), RATED R explores the repercussions made by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s successful political campaign as a Republican governor, Mel Gibson’s unapologetically Christian blockbuster The Passion of The Christ, and the debates over "patriotism" spawned by the war in Iraq. Do outspoken celebrity activists like Susan Sarandon, Barbara Streisand, and Martin Sheen--who rally for progressive causes and Democratic candidates--unintentionally create the illusion that La-La-Land only leans to the left? Featuring interviews with admitted conservatives Drew Carey, Pat Sajak ("Wheel of Fortune"), Patricia Heaton ("Everybody Loves Raymond"), Ben Stein ("Win Ben Stein’s Money"), director John Milius (Red Dawn)--and rather shockingly--incendiary actor-auteur Vincent Gallo (The Brown Bunny), RATED R challenges viewers to re-think what they know about show-biz ideologies. DVD Features: Deleted Scenes; Interview Outtakes; Original Trailer; Filmmaker Audio Interview from NPR’s Leonard Lopate Show; Filmmaker Biography; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

I Tivo'd this off the AMC channel mostly because I've imagined that being a Republican in Hollywood has got to be awkward. I've always wondered at how famous Hollywood personalities often feel compelled to try and make very liberal views seem mainstream, while suggesting conservative views are wacko. Ben Stein pretty much said this during this documentary.

I especially liked the five minutes of time respectfully given to the Act One group of screenwriters that hold to Christian views. Barbara Nicolosi and Dean Batali were featured in that segment, talking about how they can bring hope and uplifting messages to television and film.

Patricia Heaton relates how she was at a party and everyone was bashing the president. She finally piped up and said that she liked Bush and that both she and her husband voted for him. Speaking of the aghast looks she got, she says "It was like I crapped on the table or something."

Imagine my surprise when the writer/director of this documentary, Jesse Moss, stated that he was a democrat who disagreed with the viewpoints of those he interviewed, but found that he generally liked the folks he interviewed (Drew Carey, Patricia Heaton, Ben Stein, John Milius, etc.).

Finally, a Hollywood documentary worthy of being called Fair and Balanced.

This remains one of the better and, fittingly, more entertaining political documentaries around. Moss investigates Hollywood's Republican counterculture with respect and aplomb without playing partisan favorites.

Note: the scathing user reviews here seem to be written by people who have not actually watched the film.

...to understand that nobody's more oppressed than wealthy, heterosexual, white people. It's a little odd that conservatives constantly moan about how left-leaning Hollywood is, and then make a film celebrating right-leaning celebrities. In the interest of intellectual honesty, this liberal must admit that politically active entertainers usually lean left and conservatives are right that Hollywood has a liberal bent. (In a way, this film validates that, as the biggest interviews it could land is with people like Drew Carey, whom I like, and Ben Stein, whom I dislike, as he's a race-baiter with questionable views on evolution and many other things.) At one point, one of the many D-list celebrities interviewed mentions that being a Republican in Hollywood is a bit like being a closeted homosexual, constantly living in fear and feeling alienated. Yeah, because conservatives completely empathize with the oppressed and marginalized and strike to eradicate the inequality the LGBT community faces. Please.

The filmmaker, Jesse Moss, did a great job with this film. Although he is a Democrat, he really took a "fair and balanced" perspective. The best part was Patricia Heaton's story about her dinner with the producers. Hilarious!
