Naomi Watts, Sean Penn and Noah Emmerich in the Fair Game trailer

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant

Come on, it was only a matter of time before Sean Penn would star in a political drama revolving around the supposed nuclear weapons in Iraq.  Not that it’s a big deal, it’s just a little predictable.  In the film FAIR GAME, Naomi Watts plays a CIA officer leading an investigation into WMD’s in Iraq.  Meanwhile, her diplomat husband (Sean Penn) gets involved in the investigation and when he writes an editorial, a subsequent investigation reveals his wife as an agent.  Sound familiar?  I guess they couldn’t get the rights to the story of Valerie Plame and Joseph C. Wilson.  Which is a shame, because their story is fascinating.

I also have to take exception to the title, FAIR GAME.  For all pre-teen boys in the early 90’s, “FAIR GAME” only meant one thing; Cindy Crawford.  I saw the movie a dozen times, but still can’t remember what it’s about.  Watch the trailer here.
