Head of State
Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
Well, it's better than 'Bulworth,' probably because it doesn't try to elevate its hero to some kind of holy saint. Even the character himself knows he's a sambo, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have some valid points to make about American politics. It's a shame that the film didn't make like its protagonist and ditch its tepid script in favor of sharp social commentary, which predictably provides the only moments when the film seems to be alive. Rock is better when he only tries to please some of the people.
