Politics these days can be a hot button topic. Many a family dinner have been ruined over confirming what side of the isle Uncle Rick is on. This week on The Reel Debaters we political while not getting too political at all.
Inspired by such films like Idiocracy, Bulworth, Vice, Lincoln and a wide array of political comedies/thrillers/dramas today's debate asks the question what if you really could pick who you vote for?
Premise: You're a political campaign manager on the hunt for your parties next candidate for Prime Minister of Canada (where this shows entire cast lives). What movie character do you pick? Tell the world why you picked them and what would make them great at governing a nation, one thing that your candidate will change when they get to office and your campaign slogan.
Rules: Any movie allowed, only humans.
This week in the living room are Jimmy Skinner, Chris Stanton, Mark Cowell and Micheal Petrow.
Trailer of the Week: Irresistible

Welcome to The Reel Debaters, where real life meets reel life...
Each week you’ll hear 4 debaters sit down as they come up with a new tussle where they compare, contrast and insult each other with their takes for your listening pleasure. They'll either insert themselves into a story or see how they fare or bring the characters into real life scenarios that make less than no sense. As a bonus you'll get access from within the film industry and listen to "reel talks" about our favorite moments, scenes and stories.
