Bertram Pincus is a man whose people skills leave much to be desired. When Pincus dies unexpectedly, but is miraculously revived after seven minutes, he wakes up to discover that he now has the annoying ability to see ghosts.
At a July 4 barbecue, gramps tells the kids the story of Michael Malone, a documentary filmmaker and Michael Moore look-alike who hates America and wants to abolish July 4th. He refuses to celebrate with his nephew Josh, who's shipping out soon to the Middle East. That night, Michel has a vision of his hero, JFK, who predicts that three ghosts will visit Michael. Sure enough, General Patton, George Washington, and country music star Trace Adkins visit Michael show him the fruits of patriotism, just wars, and pacifism. Meanwhile, Arab terrorists want Malone to help them with a propaganda film. Is he the next Leni Riefenstahl or will he see the light? Written by

Some viewers claimed that Hitler appears to be wearing a "wedding" ring on his left hand during his 1938 meeting with Neville Chamberlain, despite the fact that Hitler was unmarried until the day before his death in April 1945. However, as the custom in Austria and Germany is to wear the wedding ring on the *right* hand it may not be a "wedding" ring at all. See more »

Great Entertainment with views you'll never see in another Hollywood Movie
This is just great Entertainment with views you'll never see in another Hollywood Movie. I watched this with my high school son and two college daughters and we all couldn't stop laughing. I enjoyed the comedic aspect and the way the film pokes fun at the massive liberal biases in Hollywood. My son just loved the film for its humor, comparing it to Something about Mary. My daughters enjoyed the parts concerning colleges and college students. They both saw professors and college friends being lampooned by actors in the movie and said the behavior exhibited by the actors was spot when showing the fringe craziness you see at times on college campuses. Overall this is a great movie, about as good as Airplane or Something about Mary.
