Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

RE: (You're easily amused) ;-)

I was amused by some of it as well. It's sort of like those skit shows like Monty Python - in a given show - there are some good skits and some that are duds. All in all worth watching but 1/2 the time you sit waiting for the good bit to arrive.

I liked the General trying to get $10 from everyone even though the nuts and water were free. I liked the Ariana Grande bits basically poking fun at the entire pop industry and good on her for making fun of herself along with it and also her song was rather funny as well.

Perlman as the loudmouth Rush Limbaugh/Alex Jones/Sean Hannity rolled into a military lout.

I understand the low rotten tomatoes ratings from the major critics - I liked it enough to marginally recommend it **1/2/*****

It needed perhaps to be more Mars Attacks! or Blazing Saddles or it needed to go the other direction and play it more realistic in terms of drama where even a competent administration was bogged down in all the congress/senate lobbying red tape to be ineffectual with stopping the comet. That would have had more resonance than the cartoon administration haplessly flailing in an emergency. It resonates more with an audience when even a competent administration is a slave to all these external pressures/lobby groups and can't get to the work of solving the problem.

David Fear's review seems apt though he is harder on it.
