Welcome to Mooseport is a comedy with an all-star cast including: Gene Hackman, Ray Romano, Marcia Gay Harden, Maura Tierney, Christine Baranski, and Fred Savage. Two men are running for mayor. Simple enough, yet what makes this film comedic is that one is the former United States president (Hackman) and the other is the local plumber Handy (Romano). The race is on when Handy decides to continue to run against the president in order to impress and win back the girl he loves. There are wins and loses along the way for both parties yet it is always the journey until the end that makes it worthwhile. If you like Romano's character in 'Everybody Loves Raymond', you will enjoy him in this film, since the two characters do not differ much. Hackman, who has recently started to explore the comedy genre, is convincing. This film might be a relief to Hackman fans as they will see him in a very quirky role instead of the heavy dramas the actor is known for. The supporting casts adds to the film and are enjoyable to watch.
Special Features include:
-Six deleted scenes with optional director commentaries
-An outtake reel
