A comedian who is elected president of the United States, just by saying something different that makes people want to hear what he has to say, is actually a perfectly believable and enjoyable plot for a movie. What is not credible about this story is the subsequent thriller plot that abuses the great acting talents of Laura Linney. Shame, because I certainly would have loved to see more of the comic rants that Robin Williams so aptly displays, making you long for the time when he was still doing stand up comedy. Just forget the script is all over the place and enjoy the comedy and the sharp commentary on American politics.
