Picture from Man of the Year
Overall C

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.
