On Sunday, director Jay Roach and screenwriter Danny Strong appeared on CNN's "Reliable Sources" to answer questions.
Strong said they interviewed about 25 people in the McCain camp, with the exception of McCain, Palin and McCain campaign advisor Mark Salter.
"We were able to interview almost every character that appears on screen and several people within the campaign who don't appear on screen," Strong said, adding, "The stories that we heard were corroborated by 10, 12, 15 people so it was never just one or two persons' account of the event."
Meanwhile, both Palin and McCain have said they had no plans to watch the movie.
"I believe my family has the right priorities and knows what really matters," Palin told ABC News on Friday when asked whether she would watch the movie. "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," Palin said.
McCain said he didn't watch the film (he watched hockey instead), arguing it's "based on a book that's completely biased, and with unattributed quotes."
Still, he had heard a thing or two about it.
"I have been told I am portrayed as using an exceeding amount of coarse language," McCain said on "Fox News Sunday." "I don't use coarse language very often. I have a larger vocabulary than that."
