Trivia

Since original director David O. Russell exited the project in 2010, his name is no longer associated with the film. Therefore, he receives directing credit as "Stephen Greene" (similar to the old "Alan Smithee" pseudonym used by directors who disown the final product of a film they may have directed at one point but eventually were not able to exercise creative control over (due to producers' or financiers' interference, for example)).

Entertaining and funny.
15 February 2015 | by (Worcester, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

You really need to suspend your disbelief from the beginning, but once you do and go along with the story it is very entertaining and funny. The writing is sharp and quick and the actors are excellent.

I like the creative use of camera angles and the movement of the camera. The production values are very good. There are several scenes involving many people and costumes.

The filming was done before Obamacare was passed but touches on some of the issues involved in that debate. It was funny to see the politicians want to spend trillions to establish a military base on the moon but not care at all about people's medical needs in a crisis. The movie also skewers the medical establishment when an emergency operation is stopped because the patient is not insured and it would cost $150,000.

Like I said, suspend you disbelief and it is a fine movie. It is truly a comedy and satire.
