"The Undefeated is the ideal candidate for digital theatrical distribution," said Jonathan Dern, president of Cinedigm Entertainment Group, which is managing the release, in the press release. "Given Palin's ardent following throughout the country, digital cinema allows us to be extremely precise and efficient in our distribution strategy, bringing this much-anticipated film directly to interested theatre-goers."

After premiering in Iowa and then other key primary states this month, the film will be released in Dallas, Denver, Oklahoma City, Orlando, Atlanta, Orange County, Phoenix, Houston, Indianapolis, and Kansas City, among other cities on July 15.

Directed by Steve Bannon, a conservative filmmaker, it follows Palin’s time as Alaska governor, the vice presidential run, and her current political life.

Initial impressions from pre-release screenings have been on the low side.

“Its tone is an excruciating combination of bombast and whining, it’s so outlandishly partisan that it makes Richard Nixon look like Abraham Lincoln and its febrile rush of images -- not excluding earthquakes, car wrecks, volcanic eruption and attacking Rottweilers -- reminded me of the brainwash movie Alex is forced to sit through in 'A Clockwork Orange.' Except no one came along to refresh my pupils with eyedrops,” wrote Kyle Smith, the New York Post's film critic.

Palin supporters are likely to have a different take, however.

“Using never-before seen video, it shows Palin taking on the machine and winning, while racking up whopping 80 percent approval ratings in the state. And you will feel fresh outrage about how savagely she has been treated and mocked by Hollywood and the liberal elite.”

National Review (likening it to a “hero’s journey” in politics) and The Daily Caller (a “game-changer”) both praised the film.

According to MSNBC, however, the most striking part of the film is its attack on the GOP establishment.

“To hell to the establishment,” says conservative activist Andrew Breitbart near the end of the movie. Then come pictures of Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and Eric Cantor. Breitbart’s beef with the GOP establishment: It didn’t defend Palin from the attacks she received after the ’08 campaign. “I see eunuchs,” he added in the "CODA" of the nearly two-hour movie.

am the only one who wants to barf???

How in the fucking hell am i suppose to be able to read Vicki's responses to this and NOT mark it as funny?!! She's killing me over here with her non-reporting ass.

Heather, I actually like her down to earth personality. I don't mind her colloquialisms, although i don't think they support her desire to be considered intelligent.

I like that she hunts and fishes and is an outdoorsy kinda gal. I like she can be comfortable in jeans or having a reporter over while she is cooking.

What i have a problem with dishonesty, the quitting thing, not taking responsibility for your actions.. (changing gun sites to surveyors sites? really?) Surveyors don't "reload". And that whole "let's get back to the founding fathers" rhetoric. I'm sorry, but last time i checked that brochure, the founding father's considered my womanly ass as property and i didn't have a right to vote. I'm happy with making progress in a positive direction.

nope I put it in there deliberately! for that reason...the tea bag party is the worst of the worst...I got one for a gov

[deleted account]

ok so I'm not even reading anymore cause this is supposed to be a debate and obviously I am too immature cause can't get past the tea bagger part. am I the only one that thinks of something other than politics when hearing that (and had no clue it was a political thing til amy explained it to me). sorry, its a gay after hours club thing to me.

Well let me just piss on everyones parade now lol. Sorry to make you all puke but I am somewhat of a Palin fan not necessarily for president though( I don't like quiters and her quiting as governor really rubbed me the wong way). Teabaggers are way too extreme. Extremists=wackjob. I really don't think she is a true teabagger she just has managed to get them as a following because she obviously knows what to say to them. Like most politicians, they figure out what a group wants to hear and run it into the ground just to get votes.

I do however think she is more intelligent than people give her credit for. I think a lot of people think of her hokey mannerisms as a sign of weekness and lack of intelligence. I just see her as a hokey, down to earth person, who is intelligent and does have something to offer. Is she the picture of strong women everywhere? Hmmm not really. But I do think she's got a set of balls on her. She's able to not let criticism get the best of her and she is able call out her 'attackers' without sounding like a whiney weiner. I will go up to bat for her if she is right on something but I don't think anybody is right about everything.

As far as her little movie I'd have to see it for myself. I don't like to just jump in and believe what one or two news authorities have to say about it.

That's my thought barb...plain followers are hardcore and really, really go to bat for her and thinks she right on everything. That does make me nervous.
The quote from hilary..lol, I believe it too...lol

Is this because her reality show went so well? (total sarcasm)

She just embarrasses me as if she is a spokesperson for strong women. It is like everytime she talks she reinforces the idea that a woman can't handle being the president.

Personally, i think Hillary was really the president when Bill was in office.

A story i once heard about them. Bill and Hillary Clinton were driving past a gas station. The owner of the gas station was a man that Hillary used to date. Bill says to Hillary, "just think honey, you could have been married to the owner of the gas station." And Hillary replied. "no, i'd be married to the President of the United States."

Palin only worries me because people seem to underestimate her followers and how fricken psychotic they are.

LOL.....um...hard to debate something when we're all of the same opinion. Did Palin get sterilized yet? that would benefit society.
