Quotes

Robert Wuhl: Everybody loves their country in a little bit different way. Some people, it's a "love-it-or-leave-it" type of thing and for those of us who have been married twenty-plus years it's more of a "Sure, she pisses me off at times. What the fuck am I gonna do, you know?"

Skip your history class and watch this for a change..
13 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never really knew who Robert Wuhl was before seeing this. But after seeing it I realized what a funny man he is. This HBO special features him teaching "American history" to New York university film students and the man was just phenomenal. He poked fun at almost every key historic event that occurred not just in the U.S. but some other parts of the world. This documentary/comedy was a great satire that made me question if what I accept as the infallible true history is really true.

I enjoyed how Mr. Wuhl managed to mix useful information with great comedy and made learning a lot more exciting. I would recommend this to anyone interested in history and is willing to question what his/her beliefs.
