The guy who was supposed to win…won!
Just kidding. I decided to join my american friends in their democratic pleasure of electing their president, by watching an election related film.
I know little about american politics, but somehow behind the curtain of mockery we can find hidden all those unwanted secrets that become a loud protest.
As an american film it is clear what kind of behavior is it mocking; face it, nobody cares about Uruguayan politicians even if they are as creepy as everywhere else; somehow I feel is that the move speaks to us all, the people, the tax payer, the movie goer!
It was entertaining the usual Will Ferrell way (I wanted to see him as Bush, but I get why he did not use that), and Zach Galifianakis was a vision, that guy is brilliant!
A little over doing it on the stereotype but all in all a decent funny film.
Just one short note related to the subject of this film, Politicians are not really providing the tools for us to make them feel accountable for their actions and the not fulfillment of their job description, power and greed go hand in hand, we just need to educate ourselves about the power we have without falling into anarchy.
