Political Satire at its finest (just kidding)
8 September 2005 | by LDomkowskiSee all my reviews

A wonderfully captivating short movie that is worth watching, and re-watching. This movie is easily on my top ten list of movies that I recommend to other people as a MUST SEE. It is also my favorite Political Satire ranking above such great movies as the dark comedy, "The Ruling Class." Penn & Teller, Purveyors of fine magic tricks are thrust into the world of political paranoia when Teller is called upon to help save the world from certain doom. It is the kind of comedy that tickles the funny-bone while pulling at the strings of reason (no pun intended). Rent, Buy or Borrow this film and watch it. You will be happy that you did.
