Still shot from the movie: Man of the Year.

Man of the Year

Robin Williams appears to be cast in the perfect role -- a politically irreverent talk show host named Tom Dobbs who succumbs to his fans' requests to run for president of the United States. But the scriptwriters strike out when they throw the comedian (and the audience) a curve ball by having his character run a serious campaign and try to turn the movie's plot into a political thriller.

How We Determine Our Grades

One celebrity who has moved from the silver screen to a political career is Arnold Schwarzenegger, now Governor of California. His movie roles have ranged from the violent Terminator franchise to the child-targeted Christmas film Jingle All the Way.

Video alternatives…

A man’s dream of a political career is chronicled in the classic Citizen Kane. Robin Williams took on a serious role as a teacher in the movie Dead Poets Society. Barry Levinson, who directed this film, also dabbled with the effects of media on the family in the film Avalon.

Home Video Extra Features

Although the scanty bonus extras would hardly win any awards for quantity of material, the DVD release of Man of the Year does provide two featurettes: Commander and Chief and Robin Williams - A “Stand Up” Guy. Available in either wide or full screen presentations, both versions offer audio tracks in English (Dolby Digital 5.1), French (Dolby Digital 5.1) and Spanish (Dolby Digital 5.1), with subtitles in English, Spanish and French.
