This is my top 10 list of PR Movies of all time:
Wag the Dog:
The film that starred Dustin Hoffman & Robert DeNiro is about an Washington Prmovies consultant and political consultant who conceived fake wars, filled with theme songs, movies and other elements designed to deceive the public. The impact to influence public opinion is clear in this.
What list of films in PR could not be completed without the classic Tom Cruise flick? From the timeless “Show Me the Money” lines to the tense battles between other agents trying to take his clients away and his tireless work for the clients and prompting them to do the subject of marketing. There are plenty of practical lessons in this movie for us who work in Prmovies . It’s an amazing one.
Thank You for Smoking: Follows a well appearance, suave leader of a tobacco lobby as he spins health claims on TV — and in some amusing scenes, he dances with other in unsavory industries like firearm as well as alcohol lobbyists. The film ends with a hilarious line from the movie “Michael Jordan plays ball. Charles Manson kills people. I talk. Everybody has a talent.”

It’s the Social Network:
Public Relations today is of course digital media. If we believe the film, Public Relations via the Harvard newspaper allowed students to start learning about their newly-created social network and that’s where the fun started — and continued with stories that were planted negatively. It is a fantastic business tale that encompasses both digital and traditional tales of public relations.
Sweet Smell of Success:
The film was released in 1993, the film was picked to be preserved on the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The film focuses on the relationship between a gossip writer and the chief of an PR Agency — and shows how closely linked relationships are which are still in use in the present — between PR and journalists.
PR’s a highly pressured industry that is continuous, as the opening of this film shows by Ben Affleck losing it at the high-risk press conference — and later getting fired. Through a variety of references to Public relations throughout the film and the main character’s transition to an official towards the end in a different setting — an audience of residents in their New Jersey town.
Although only the first half of the film really focuses on the career path that of Stu Shepard (Colin Farrell) the film is a complete movie about a person who’s an agent of public relations, so it has to be included on the top list of Prmovies for that reason all by itself.
A delightful film that demonstrates how a professional in PR can make a successful candidate from a small amount of material. It’s the perfect story about the ways in which Public Relations can spin truth and showcases the power of the profession — both to good or bad.
Primary Colors is a new film that focuses on political PR consultants assisting candidates to navigate their way through the political arena. From media cover-ups to the handling of emergency PR crises, it’s engaging and informative.
“All the Men of President” The political drama features an unnamed source of information from the press that brings an end to White House — and it’s inspired by the classic tale and has a variety of practical strategies that every emergency PR company can take from.
Plus, as an added bonus — two great TV shows for PR:
The West Wing —
This television show has been described as the most authentic portrayal of White House inner workings by many of the political addicts. Also, CJ Cregg (played by Allison Janney) is a extremely skilled press secretary who isn’t easily agitated and always has great jokes in front of the media.
Mad Men —
While based on an agency that operated in an earlier time the show is awe-inspiring and has a wide range of scenarios, including interactions between staff and clients and innovative (and fresh business proposals) and agency dynamic.
