Neither appears to have seen it, but Sarah Palin and John McCain both took shots this weekend at Game Change, the HBO movie about their unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign. The film premiered Saturday night.
Palin, 48, portrayed in the film by Julianne Moore, told Fox News before the premiere that she was "not concerned about an HBO movie based on a false narrative when there are so many other things to be concerned about."
She added: "I believe my family has the right priorities and knows what really matters. For instance, our son called from Afghanistan yesterday and he sounded good, and that's what matters. Being in the good graces of Hollywood's 'Team Obama' isn't top of my list."

Moviegoers are getting a peek at Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in a theatrical trailer for Game Change, HBO's political thriller about the 2008 presidential race.
The movie, which will air on March 10 at 9 p.m., goes behind the scenes of Sen. John McCain's campaign and in particular his decision to pick the relatively unknown Alaska governor as his controversial running mate.
"We need to create a dynamic moment in this campaign," says Woody Harrelson, who plays McCain's adviser Steve Schmidt. "Or we're dead."
