Audience Reviews for Ambassador Bill

Funny and enjoyable tale of a good ol' country boy who becomes the ambassdor to Sylvania. It's a troubled little country. When he arrives, they have only had one revolution that week!

You can tell this movie was crafted just for [b]Will Rodgers[/b] style. It gives him excellent opportunities to lampoon governments and the stupid things they do. It also, shows how well he interacts with youngsters, and his rope tricks was a highlight of the movie for me -- he was fantastic!

It's reassuring and sad to know that the government in 1931 was just as screwed up as it is today.

Catch this one if you can. I think most will be surprised at how well it still plays in 2008.
