In this Funny or Die short, Barack Obama has the opportunity to meet all the former U.S. presidents from Gerald Ford to George W. Bush, dead or alive, who'll help him to figure out ... See full summary »
A murder investigation of a slain businessman turns to clues found in an author's book about an eerily similar crime. Based on the 2008 article "True Crimes - A Postmodern Murder Mystery" by David Grann.
I don't get why Jim made this. Some sort of political activism that makes me think Jim went Martin Sheen on us. And like Martin Sheen's career took a big dump after he started staging protests and what not.
First of all it's usually bad when actors/entertainers go political. We know, see, and most importantly pay them for what they are good at; acting, entertaining, and in particular Jim for making us laugh. Frankly, like most people I couldn't care less what political affiliation an actor is and I certainly don't look to them for political advice either.
2nd Jim I think your way off the mark on this one. The Second Amendment, our constitution, the Right to bear arms, etc., you apparently don't understand at all. If nothing else it's about having arms to protect our self's against a tyrannical government. Speaking of which, our USA government jumps at every opportunity to forward it's own agenda on removing guns from the public. Look at the history of Hitler and other dictatorships. The first thing they do is outlaw public gun ownership making it a capital offense for having one. So Jim either intentionally or by mistake you're just forwarding the big government's agenda here..
3rd I get from this comedy short you are calling Charlton Heston a buffoon thus are arrogantly calling yourself the superior. Now you are/were both 'A' list actors. And as much as I enjoy your own work if I were stranded on a remote island and I had the choice of only either Jim Carrey or Charlton Heston's movies I'd easily choose the later. I'd watch the original "Planet of the Apes" movies, "Soylent Green", "The Omega Man", "Ben-Hur", etc., over and over again..
Overall I thought this little comedy skit to be not the least bit funny, pretentious, silly, and pretty pointless.
