Quotes

Cleavon Buford: Congressman Cleavon Baybridge Buford... 'Repube,' Georgia.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Nice to meet you.
Cleavon Buford: Yes, you too.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Did you just say 'Repube?'
Cleavon Buford: Mmm-hmm... yes, sir.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt: You mean Republican?
Cleavon Buford: No, sir. The form I filled out when I ran for Congress said 'Repube' on it. It was a professional form, sir. It was typed on paper... maybe even double spaced.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt: I think you meant 'Repub,' short for Republican.
Cleavon Buford: No, sir! I saved the form, sir. It is inside a folder marked official on it, so I know that it is real.

Genius movie...
4 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw a screening of this in Portland and it is seriously one of the funniest films ever made. It reminded me of Airplane or Naked Gun. Partly because Barry Bostwick turns in a Leslie Nielson-esque performance, and more importantly, you believe him in the role of FDR. Don't get me wrong the dialogue is out of control and everything is played over the top, including the effects and werewolf costumes, but the cast seems to revel in it and act it out as if the words were Shakespeare. The surrounding cast around Bostwick really rose to level that he was playing his character, especially Ray Wise, Bruce McGill, and Ross Patterson. The filmmakers manage to pull off the low budget aspect and use it to bolster the film, so much so, that it seems like it was specifically written for that type of vibe. The film itself is extremely crass and involves blatant racism, but no one is safe from it. I for one LOVED this film and think it has the potential to be an instant cult classic, but I'm sure some people will be offended.
