Accident..al..lo...Well hm... Just an Accident!
28 May 2015 | by (the Edge of the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

This is somehow a black comedy with over-the-top situations and acting, with a mild, to-late-for-that lampoon about politics and government.

It is an expensive film. 26 millions are too much for what it really is.

The style it reminds movies from other decades. You even got Pee-wee Hermann in a secondary yet prominent role.

PLOT: It's about a young waitress who has a freaky accident that changed her life. She can't have health care and travels to Washington with some other mishaps to pass a health-care bill, only to realize the true face of politics.

Well, it is less than it sounds. The movie fails to feel big in that manner. The cast is OK and is doing its best to work with the weird script and material. Jessica Biel looks good and you can admire James Marsden's and Jake Gyllenhaal's effort to give life to their awkward characters. Tracy Morgan is also in this showing his lack of comedic talent, trying to deliver some deadpan oneliners.

There is song and a dance at the end that is somehow entertaining. You can fast forward to that.
