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.

Why Is Man of the Year Rated PG-13?

It takes a celebrity to set the political system straight—or at least that’s the Hollywood point of view in this film about a comedian who decides to run for the White House… and wins. This satirical movie’s script uses many sexual and religious (mainly Jewish and Catholic) jokes to make light of serious topics. It also delves into a more serious subplot about a woman attacked in her home and injected with a mix of potent drugs. Later, she is stalked by men wanting to keep her quiet. Some mild and moderate profanities are included along with one use of a sexual expletive. A main character frequently smokes and says he has done so since he was seven, however his health suffers because of this habit. Social drinking is depicted.
