"... Mr. Downey clearly prefers a lot of near misses to a few direct hits, and in the course of his wild tale about the tribulations of a newly elected President of the United States he takes bold swipes at, among other targets, the Catholic Church, the civil-rights movement, international diplomacy, Time, God, shoe-fetishism, psychiatry, the South, the North, the East, and the West. I laughed all around the compass... the funniest movie I've seen in months... Taylor Mead looks like a cross between a zombie and a kewpie and speaks as if his mind and mouth were full of marshmellow." --Brendan Grill, The New Yorker "Should be required viewing at every political convention--especially in presidential election years."--Jonas Mekas
