Tracy Enid Smith (Reese Witherspoon) is running unopposed in the upcoming election for high school student body president. Unfortunately, a teacher (Matthew Broderick) who dislikes her grooms an underdog candidate to run against her. This, of course, sets the stage for considerable political backbiting in this witty comedy.
