Spy movies have existed almost as long as the art of espionage. But as with all genres, most of the movies within the spy category aren't exactly masterpieces. But if…
Fair Game seems to take the trappings of the spy movies we love and apply them to the real life situation of Valerie Plame. That doesn’t make it feel any less like a standard docudrama though.
Here we have a trailer for the Fair Game that doesn't include a naked Cindy Crawford. Doug Liman's Fair Game tackles the true life story of Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson. The story goes as follows: Bush wanted to go to war, so his administration misappropriated information from Joe Wilson's report detailing why war wasn't necessary. Wilson wrote a New York Times editorial, explaining their deception, which sparked a huge controversy. As revenge, the administration outed Plame (Wilson's wife) as a CIA agent to the world. That's cold. You don't mess with a Congressman's boo like that.
In the film, Plame is played by Naomi Watts and Wilson is played by Sean Penn. So don't expect a bloody shoot-out in the Oval Office as the film's climax. You'll have to wait for the John Cena version for that.
