Palin to Iowa for movie debut

Washington (CNN) –- When the Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated” makes its premiere in Iowa next week, the film’s star will be on hand for the big debut.

The production company behind the film announced Saturday that Palin and her husband Todd would be in Pella, Iowa, for the showing on Tuesday.

“We are very excited to visit historic Pella and its opera house and look forward to seeing the finished film for the first time with fellow Americans from the heartland,” Palin said in a statement.

Iowa, which holds the first contest in the presidential caucus and primary calendar, is key for any politician thinking of running for the White House. Palin has said she is contemplating running for the Republican presidential nomination.

“The Undefeated” is a feature-length film produced by conservative filmmaker Stephen Bannon. The movie, which cost $1 million to produce, takes a favorable look at Palin’s record as governor of Alaska, including reform efforts. It also covers her entrance onto the national political stage as Sen. John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election.

–CNN Political Reporter Peter Hamby contributed to this report.

    Will she watch the whole thing or quit half way?

    A one million dollar movie budget does not leave any dollars for fact checking, so combined with the Palins grifting personalities I would not expect any truth in this little movie. Good news for Gili and Jennifer Lopez, they will no longer be the worst movie ever made thanks to Sarah Palins movie. What kind of person is so weak kneed and thin skinned that they cant get their points accross unless they have a movie where they won't be challenged ? Answer is a patholgical egomaniac.

    I can't wait to see a 'Fair and Balanced' depiction of Sarah Palin's half-term governorship.

    The Undefeated? She lost in 2008 and threw in the towel in 2009—That makes her a two time loser. That should be the title of the movie.

    "The Undefeated," a movie about the former quit-halfway-through-her-term Alaska governor and DEFEATED Vice-Presidential GOP candidate.

    Great, now she is off to Beverly Hills, a politician and a Hollywood actress. Who is the nut that produced it.

    Will it be all about the hate and lies she has told and expecting the people to believce them?

    Wow, guess a movie premier outweighs jury duty, but her "American Tour" wasn't that important.

    Iowa is the only place where a handful of people might show up to this egotistical video of lies. It's just another money-making scheme for Palin. I wonder if it will "quit" halfway through!

    I'm sure this film will be one of the most notorious propaganda films in our history, in fact it will be a rewrite of our history. The people of Iowa may shell out money to make Palin more wealthy, but I will not contribute one dime to enrich her.

    When the movie comes to television which channel will show it, the Comedy channel of the Sci-Fi channel?

    I certainly hope Palin scores big with the people who actually would waste their time and money watching this film. The more money she continues to make from the fringe the better as there will be less money to spend on those other extremist who are actually running for office.

    "The Undefeated", what is the background on this title? I guess it sounds better than "Loser and Quitter".

    I think they ought to re-release the film with a new name "The incomplete"

    'The Undefeated?" You're kidding ... This woman QUIT, and walked out on her Alaskan constituents. I don't see how that would look "favorable" in any light.

    Her motives are completely transparent; books, a reality show, talking engagements and now a movie. It's all designed to put money in the pocket of Sarah Palin while she continues to dupe the American public. She has absolutely nothing to offer Americans and as soon as people wake up to the fact, the better.

    So, go the premier, spend your hard-earned dollars and don't forget to stop and get your free, complimentary "I Love Sarah" Moose-antlered ballcap ...

    These self centered Hoolywood types traveling around like rock stars and creating chaos where ever they go really should be more considerate.

    I look forward to the day when this self-promoting shill is reduced to opening shopping centers.
