Let David O. Russell's involvement in this mess never be forgotten. A lazy screwball comedy that could have been something great with its topical tackling of universal healthcare, I don't know if it was the behind the scenes drama or he just phoned it in, Russell REALLY dropped the ball here and depended on the wrong things to convey his message.
**1/2 As expected: A transparently bastardized version (a record-scratch sound effect??) of what could've been a pleasantly funny, if broad, satire of Americans' bizarre relationship with politics/political process. Frustrating, yet in a way revealing (really, any layperson can spot the sitcom-editing tampering rampant here - the divide between visions); watch only if your curiosity gets the better of you.
