Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Not to be confused with the 1992 Diane Keaton TV-movie vehicle of the same name, director Thomas L. Neff's Running Mates is a teen-oriented seriocomedy. The principal characters are played by Gregg Webb and Barbara Howard, a couple of schoolmates who fall in love. Their future happiness is sorely tested when their respective parents run against each other in an upcoming election. Pat and predictable, Running Mates is elevated somewhat by the appealing performance of Webb and Howard.
