    kinda of karma that this flopped at the box office, many of the background players aka extras got stiffed by the producers and didn\'t get paid or if they did it was months later.

    This movie had its good moments, and at times I felt like it was above average, but overall I felt that it was nothing special. I had difficulty following the plot. I chuckled a few times but I never actually laughed. I\'m glad I saw it, but I really can\'t recommend it.

    One star for all the people who think this film is propaganda for the Obama Campaign. You people are dumb and need to cool it on the hate rhetoric. If you think for a moment that the mess this country finds itself in is the result of one man, then please, educate yourselves or shut up. I\'m sure many of you get most of your news, ideas, and information about politics from conservative media- interesting fact, poll after poll shows people ******** solely on Fox News for information are more uninformed than people who watch no news at all. Calm down, take a deep breath, and look at everything from a broader perspective- ALL politicians save a select few are the problem, not just one man. By the way, since it is an argument regularly made by the uninformed, fascism is the marrying of government and corporations- anyone wanting to give more power and influence over government to corporations, mainly Republicans, are indeed fascist. Anyhow, Google is your friend- please if you are going to make dumb, blanket assertions then inform yourself with various forms of information. Not information that already backs up how you feel but information that brings you new ways of thinking and that even challenges your perception. But just cool it on the rhetoric, please. Thank you.
