Spinning Boris is a 2003 comedy movie starring Jeff Goldblum, Anthony LaPaglia and Liev Schreiber. It was directed by Roger Spottiswoode. In the film, a Russian political elite hires American consultants to help with Boris Yeltsin's reelection campaign when his approval rating is down to single digits.

The film is based on the true story of three American political consultants who ran the successful reelection campaign of Boris Yeltsin in 1996, although some question the degree of involvement of the Americans in Yeltsin's reelection. Andrew Wilson, for instance, mocks the idea of Gorton, Dresner, and Shumate playing a significant role in his work Virtual Politics.
