The outrageous story of Franklin Delano Roosevelt who after being stricken with polio from a werewolf attack runs for president, kicks butt, and takes names.
12 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'FDR: American Badass' is one of those movies that I rate high mostly because it is completely outrageous, hilarious, and unique. In comparison to a film like 'Citizen Kane' do I think that this is a great movie? No, but it sure is fun as hell to watch, especially with a few friends and a few beers. The movie follows Franklin Delano Roosevelt from the time he was stricken with polio to his campaign for president, to World War II. Is it holistically accurate? Well, I doubt it, but if you want history watch the history channel, if you want to laugh watch this movie.

Although this movie did not have a huge Hollywood budget, there are still some well known actors involved including Barry Bostwich (Spin City), Lin Shaye (Detroit Rock City), and even Kevin Sorbo…yes Hercules! The writer himself makes an appearance as Cleavon Buford, a swinging (and I mean that in the sense of key parties) southern repube…not repub, and I must say he brings a lot to the table. Having well known actors is a great asset, because even with a small budget, experienced actors allow it to not seem like a small budget film.

This movie is what I consider to be a "pee your pants comedy," which I think is pretty much self explanatory. It doesn't make me think, it doesn't make me fall in love with the characters, it just makes me laugh. "Pee your pants comedies" are also great because they have so much re-watch value. Unlike a movie like 'The Sixth Sense,' which loses half of its appeal after you learn the twist, 'FDR: American Badass' can be watched until it doesn't make you laugh anymore. This movie doesn't try to be anything that it is not, and I think that is important, because we all know that if you paint stripes on a horse it doesn't make it a zebra.
