Greg Whiteley followed the Romney family for six years, from the Massachusetts governor's first attempt for the Republican nomination in 2006 to his run against now-President Barack Obama in 2012. Whiteley said the Sundance Film Festival premiere Friday was the Romneys' first look at the film, which will debut on Netflix on Jan. 24.

So what did they think?

Whiteley said he didn't ask and the Romneys didn't offer.

The couple also is expected to attend Saturday night's premiere of the film in Park City, Utah.
