What Sucks…Robin Williams’ “Man Of The Year”, Although I’ll Never See It

Robin Williams' “Man Of The Year” seriously, seriously blows as a movie and I say this as someone who has not, nor will ever see it.

Williams in it, hits new lows in un-funniness at one point apparently donning a George Washington, Revolutionary War-Time wig in what I can only imagine is just a profoundly un-humorous sequence in the film that takes place in the back of a limo. Also, in the limo he presents the idea of naming Bruce Springsteen as his Secretary of State, eliciting in the theater, what I can only imagine as an “uncomfortable silence”. Like the Boss would work for a guy who wears a George Washington wig.

Also, he apparently, as far as I can tell from the trailer, stands at a podium and comments that although he has not “had sex with that woman”, he “wanted to”, referring to the Bill Clinton/ Monica Lewinsky scandal which took place in 1998-99.

It is now 2006.

Finally, Jeff Goldblum is apparently in the film, extending his streak of crappy movies (with the exception of his appearances on Crank Yankers, and possibly Life Aquatic) to approximately 19 films, dating back to 1993.

Jurassic Park- good movie.
