A political statement that entertains BOTH sides!
1 June 2016 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This "mockumentary" addresses so many issues facing America, especially during this election season. The core topic may be old ("Obamacare"), but the underlying events and outcomes are very much current.

What I especially liked about this movie, is the fact that even though it's a politically motivated story, EVERYONE in the theater loved Ron & Laura! Depending on which side of the political spectrum they were on, the laughs would come at different times, BUT there was continuous laughter, nonetheless!

In a nutshell; Ron & Laura are an ultra-conservative couple who decide to produce their own reality show, subsequently coming to terms(?) with: homosexuality, xenophobia, illness and health-care (theirs & others), and gun control.

"Ron & Laura" tackles these issues with a deft comedic touch, and makes the viewer (more) aware and thoughtful of said issues.

I could easily see this/these characters in a TV series, which I'd watch!
