Twisty and flat-out hilarious.

Lazily assembled by director Levinson, it slides into a series of soft, extended skits on engineering a media war, not helped by several badly handled leaps in the story.

Feels tossed-off and casual in the best way.

The movie is intelligent, but it's also a lot of fun.

Anyone who would be inherently interested in this kind of sendup is unlikely to be surprised by anything in this film -- overall it feels like a trifle, if an entertaining one.

'Wag the Dog,' a movie that's fun to see more than once, comes across as a bitingly funny satire of politics, the media and show business.

Hilary Henkin and David Mamet's script is gleefully hyperbolic without ever straying from its political target.

A wicked smart satire on the interlocking worlds of politics and show business, Wag the Dog confirms every awful thought you've ever had about media manipulation and the gullibility of the American public.

Amusing as it is, Wag The Dog does what it purports to sat irize -- the bark is real but the teeth aren't.

Entertaining, creepily resonant political comedy.

The pacing is crisp, the dialogue quippy and fast, the tone arch but energetic.
