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

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

What advantages do prominent media personalities have over political leaders? What are some of the responsibilities and challenges of holding a political office that the public may overlook?

Do celebrities’ opinions alter your political perspective? Even though we don’t elect media commentators and movie stars, how do we indirectly put them into positions of power? Do you think they ever have had an affect on the outcome of a political race?
