Hilarious take on the CIA's ineptness

In view of the fact that the CIA is being the fall guy for the Bush gang's insistence on invading Iraq, you'll find this depiction of the beaurocratic idiocies of 'the company' to be truthful AND funny. Woody Allan (why was he unbilled?) gives his all depicting the chief CIA agent in Cuba. While the Revolution goes on all around him, he denies that the people are dissatisfied.

Pee-Wee as Batista (Alan Cumming) is doubly hilarious, since we know of Pee Wee's interesting foibles. The sight of Woody Allen lighting his cigar on a burning pinata of Batista, while denying the Revolution exists, is double-up side-splitting. The bit about playing the American rock and roll songs on the radio as 'code' for the CIA wasn't far from what they actually do.

Maybe it's because I never heard of his movie, it surprised me so. Just wanted to see Dennis Leary in his pre-tough guy days. And that itself is worth the price of the movie, as he gets so frustrated by having his English corrected, he .......can't tell you.

This movie is a really wonderful example of movie-making at its' best when you have a bunch of professionals working together and given great lines. Making it in Puerto Rico was also a nice touch.
