I thought that Jason Biggs (as Phil) and David Joel Moore (as Grant) were good in the roles and really funny together. And Cedric the Entertainer did a credible job as the incumbent city councilman. The 99 minute running time seemed about right and was sufficient to tell the story without dragging it out. In the end I liked the way that local politics was portrayed.
I think Grassroots tells a positive story and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★.
