Reviews:

Prolific Baltimore director Barry Levinson's last great film was 1997's Clinton/Lewinsky goof, Wag the Dog, so you can't blame him for revisiting absurdist political satire a decade later. Robin Williams plays a Jon Stewart-esque talk show host who improbably wins the Presidency after'"you guessed it'"a voting machine snafu.
