I don't see another thread about it.

Saw it last night, it was decent. I had no idea it was Richard Dryefus who played Dick; but, I think he did a great job. Josh Brolin as W was good too.
I had seen reviews calling it a "toothless satire" of bad SNL parody style skits; but, the only person who made you laugh in that sense was Tandee as Condie.
If anything I didn't think it was the acting; but, just the overall storyline that seemed watered and all over the place. It just seemed to randomly jump back and forth.

When Stone is on, he's on (Nixon, JFK, Wall Street). When he's not, he's (as you said) "all over the place" (Alexander, et. al)

Honestly, I'm so sick of GWB that the last thing I want to do is see a movie about him. True, false, funny, poignant, accurate, or satire... I don't care. Just get him GONE already...

+1.... saw the movie, couldnt really watch the movie and enjoy it at all. I was just mad at all the negligence pointed out during the administration.

Wanted to see it but strangely none of the theaters in my neck of the woods were showing it.

Don't mess with Texas!!!!

There's an independent theatre literally fifty feet from my apartment showing it, but I definitely won't be checking it out.

I DID go to see Apaloosa there, though, and that was pretty fun, though I kept getting the hint that Viggo Mortensen's character was a little more than just passively interested in Ed Harris'.

Viggo Mortensen showing interest in another sentinent being impresses me. I'd not thought him capable of this.

It was okay at first. It would have been a good SNL skit, but it dragged on and on and on - - -

(I'm no Bush fan, but this was a hatchet piece, not the even-handed presentation that Roger Ebert said it was. That having been said, I enjoyed the first 45 minutes or so of Bush Bashing, but this was a 2 hour play on just one joke. It also presented only the liberal side of the Iraq War Issue.) (I feel that we should not have even thought about going in, but now that the ridiculous mistake has been made, we should make the best of it and get out with the situation as good as it can possibly be.)

Why did the Republicans have to prop up this joker anyway? (I'm a centrist, not a liberal, but this man was not qualified to be dog catcher, much less president.)

The movie was way too long and basically had one joke happening. We already know Bush is an unqualified idiot.

Perhaps this has something to do with the lack of commercial success that liberal whine-flicks normally see.

Maybe...ORRR maybe...it could be that I live in freaking pro-assault rifle, anti-choice, Republican-ville.

You might like this...My cousin got an AR-15 for his birthday (I think 21st) with a match-grade barrel and scope. He took it to the other family ranch and started knocking down javelina at 300 yards. As much as I hate the idea of hunting with semi-automatic rifles, I do have to respect that. And now I want one.

Sorry rach, pics or GTFO. Oh, and I want a tape measure in the pictures too. I don't think this looks that funny. Oh and speaking of SNL, this weekend, and in general recently it has been terrible!

No sport in hunting with a semi-auto.
What's next? Deer hunting with bazookas? At least give the animal a chance, or you might as well be buying your meat from a butcher shop.

Hey, I've only got one of those 25 foot tape measures, which according to my calculations means it will only reach halfway to the theatre near my house. So, I hope two pictures will suffice.
