Rabbits in the White House
24 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

US Vice-President finds herself trapped in the White House, while her husband has to locate a bomb on a plane that has been planted by the US Chief General, who is taken hostage the president in the crisis control room below the White House. This all as a consequence of the danger posed by an aggressive Arab terrorist enemy. Mrs. Vice-President saves the day by fighting her way out of the White House and into the control room and stopping the fighter jets from nuking the Arab enemy just seconds before the supposed hit. At the same time, her son and husband manage to throw the bomb from the plane, again seconds from disaster.

This all sounds as if this were some kind of satire movie, but in fact it is meant to be a serious story. OK, big mistake, but maybe the way they present it is something worth watching. Eh… no. How in God's name were the makers of this movie able to hire such an extensive cast and fancy locations, while not even being able to afford a steady camera or a professional director? Everything in this movie looks fake, with at its pinnacle the heroin Mrs. Vice-President with her plastic face.
