Taking aim at political skullduggery, false populism and press manipulation, this caustic mockumentary stars Tim Robbins as the titular Bob Roberts, a folk-singing right-winger trying to unseat a liberal U.S. senator.

What a silly, satire of American politics! Bob Roberts's folk singing, conservative stance on policies make for great laughs for Liberal America, though conservatives may no doubt be offended. Still, the characters are charming, the dialogue isn't atrocious, and it doesn't overstay its welcome. Recommended.
