Bulworth

Synopsis: Senator Jay Bulworth is facing speculation-induced financial ruin, so he puts out a contract on his own life in order to collect a large, new insurance policy for his family. Living each moment on borrowed time, he suddenly begins spouting raw, unfiltered--and sometimes offensive in word but satirical in spirit -- thoughts to shocked audiences and handlers in the speech of hip-hop music and culture. His newfound uninhibitedness and new relationship with Nina carry him on a journey of political and spiritual renewal.

Hello, I'm Jay Bulworth.

We stand at the doorstep

of a new millennium.

Our obligation is to reduce

our bloated government...

but at the same time,

restore its creative power...

to reinvigorate our society...

My name is Jay Bulworth.

We stand at the doorstep

of a new millennium.

Our obligation...

California families

who live by the rules...

and work hard

and pay their taxes...

shouldn't be paying

for people who do nothing.

I'm Jay Bulworth.

I believe in a hand up,

not a hand down.

I need your support on Tuesday.

I'm Jay Bulworth.

We stand at the doorstep

of a new millennium.

I'll fight to end unnecessary

affirmative action programs.

I'm Jay Bulworth.

We stand at the doorstep

of a new millennium.

Our obligation is to reduce...

We stand at the doorstep

of a new millennium.

Our welfare system

is out of control.

Of course we should help...

My name is Jay Bulworth.

We stand at the doorstep

of a new millennium.

My wife Connie and I

have been married for 24 years.

She's been a loving partner,

and more importantly...

Connie's been my friend.

Jay has been a great

senator for California...

but the best job he's done is

as a loving husband and father.

I believe

in the old-fashioned values...

of honesty and decency

and fidelity.

Join me in my crusade...

to strengthen

California's families.

Hello, I'm Jay Bulworth.

We stand at the doorstep

of a new millennium.

I'm Jay Bulworth.

We stand at the doorstep

of a new millennium.

We can't afford any longer

to give people privileges...

on the basis of race.

It's time we realized

discrimination in the past...

doesn't justify discrimination

in the future.

Hello, I'm Jay Bulworth.

We stand at the doorstep

of a new millennium.

Our welfare system

is out of control.

Of course we should help

families who truly need it...

but too often, welfare

is a permanent subsidy...

for able-bodied people

who could and should...

Hello, this is

a telephone answering machine.

Leave a message at the beep.

If you're there,

pick up the goddamn telephone.

I know you're there.

Pork bellies, indeed.

I've just spoken with Hong Kong

again, and I'm very upset!

That's the wrong word.

I'm pissed, pissed...

pissed, pissed, pissed, pissed!

I warned you repeatedly

about Fenner.

That son of a bitch and

his pork belly goddamn schemes.

And now he tells me...

He tells me you've invested

nearly everything you had...

and they're selling

the goddamn things short.

We got the check.

The senator would just love

to have drinks with the sultan.

Will the sultan be

in Beverly Hills?

- Has he buzzed yet?

- No.

Feldman call?

It's 6:
15 in the morning in L.A.

I don't care.

Get me Liebowitz and Macavoy.

I only got two hands.

I'm too old to grow a third.

I didn't ask you

to grow anything new.

Just get me the calls.

And Mr. Chow?

What about Mr. Ling?

Tell me, did his check clear?

Hey, Senator.

It's a beautiful morning.

The birds are singing.

Warren Beatty

Henry Warren Beatty (né Beaty; born March 30, 1937) is an American actor and filmmaker. He has been nominated for fourteen Academy Awards – four for Best Actor, four for Best Picture, two for Best Director, three for Original Screenplay, and one for Adapted Screenplay – winning Best Director for Reds (1981). Aside from Orson Welles for Citizen Kane, Beatty is the only person to have been nominated for acting in, directing, writing, and producing the same film, and he did so twice: first for Heaven Can Wait (with Buck Henry as co-director), and again with Reds. Eight of the films he has produced have earned 53 Academy nominations, and in 1999, he was awarded the Academy's highest honor, the Irving G. Thalberg Award. Beatty has been nominated for eighteen Golden Globe Awards, winning six, including the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award, which he was honored with in 2007. Among his Golden Globe-nominated films are Splendor in the Grass (1961), his screen debut, and Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Shampoo (1975), Heaven Can Wait (1978), Reds (1981), Dick Tracy (1990), Bugsy (1991), Bulworth (1998) and Rules Don't Apply (2016), all of which he also produced. Director and collaborator Arthur Penn described Beatty as "the perfect producer", adding, "He makes everyone demand the best of themselves. Warren stays with a picture through editing, mixing and scoring. He plain works harder than anyone else I have ever seen." more…
