Trivia

The reference to John Ashcroft losing to a dead man is true. The "dead man" was Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan. Carnahan was running for Senator, but died in a plane crash in October three weeks before the election. It was too late to remove his name from the ballot. But Carnahan defeated Ashcroft in the election. His widow Jean served his term in the Senate. See more »

It Was All And More Than I Expected
1 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Already being a huge, lifelong fan I was very eager to view this show/movie. I could not stop laughing the entire time. It was non-stop comedy. Robin Williams is a total comic genius. His jokes ranged from pop-culture, drugs, politics, sex, crazy foreigners, and all those water bottles with minds of their owns. I was never bored waiting for the next joke; it was like one big joke with boundless and endless humor. Not only does it appeal to many audiences and is painfully clever, but he is so physically connected to his spread that he is not only telling his jokes...he IS his jokes.

Well done Mr. Williams, well done!
