Mooseport (2004) is a rather trivial comedy.
A popular president, who divorced from the first lady, retires to the small
town of Mooseport, and is offered to become the next mayor. Andy the plumber
has been dating Sally the veterinarian for years, and never pops the question.
Sally's smile actually conquers the president, and he accepts the job of mayor.
Except that the same job had been offered to the plumber, and the plumber has
also accepted. Initially, Andy is glad to withdraw. But when he realizes that
the president has a date with his girl, Andy decides to go ahead and run against
the president. This is embarrassing for the president's entourage, which does
not welcome a fight with a plumber. The president's staff is mobilized to make
sure that the president wins easily, but they have never faced such an
opponent: he is honest. The media publicizes both the political and the romantic
duel between the former president and his plumber. Things get more and more
serious, as Sally dumps Andy and the president's faithful secretary resigns,
both disgusted by their respective men. Eventually, one out of sincerity and
love, and the other one out of political calculus, each candidate decides to
back the other, further confusing the campaign. The president wins the election
by one vote, his own: he cheated and voted for himself. He confesses publicly
and refuses the job. But Andy also confesses the same sin, and returns the
victory to the president. The president begs his secretary to stay, and Andy
finally proposes to Sally (and confesses that he lied about voting for himself:
he did win, but just didn't want to win).
