Seriously?
12 February 2015 | by berenger-laurentSee all my reviews

Probably one of the worst movies i've ever seen. I don't see the point having such a casting to release that crap.

You'll notice, this movie follows an idiotic chain reaction based on an event and it's consequences. Consequences that could clearly not happen. OK OK i got it it's a satire but if it's designed to make people laugh or reach a king of irony, then it's not even good absurd humour but just cheap one.

I'm no USA Citizen and not English native speaker so i'm not directly concerned nor educated about congress and related subjects. Still this movie's meaning has been completely messed.
