Movie Review: Man of the Year

This movie got some pretty bad reviews. It was a movie that could go either way and went the wrong one. It wasn't as bad as the reviewers said, but it wasn't what it could have been.

Here's the basics. Robin Williams has his own political comedy show. Someone suggests he run for president so he does. He wins, too. He probably would have won legitimately in a nationwide election, but he only wins in the 14 states he's on the ballot in because of a glitch in the electronic voting machines. Someone in the company that makes the machines points this out and in return the boss pumps her full of drugs and fires her. She tells Robin, the company smears her and tries to kill her, Robin falls for her, he breaks the story to the public, the election is held again, but he doesn't run.

This could have been another "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" meets "The Daily Show" but instead they never make it past the campaign.

Just don't bother.

This was one of the worst movies I've seen in a LONG time! whoever edited this flick needs to be put out his misery...not that the movie was all that strong even if re-cut.
