If Joan Rivers were Portuguese...
Definitely one of the oddest films I've seen in many a day... If you can imagine a woman who looks a great deal like Joan Rivers living in Lisbon in a house that she has redesigned as the White House and makes speeches about Manifest Destiny in Portuguese to her all-female staff (who prepare state banquets of fast food, including Kentucky Fried Chicken by the bucket)... well, if your imagination takes flights like that, then you'll be far less surprised by this movie than I was! The joke wore a little thin in the final reels, but it's nice to see such a fresh and whimsical view of things... I can't imagine anything like this being made even by an indie in the States. 2 1/2 stars out of 5, with an added half star for the originality of the concept, so 3...
