Man of the Year Reviews

Lame political comedy misses the mark.

It's a nearly tone-deaf satire of American politics and the culture of celebrity, a comedy without enough laughs, a satire without enough bite.

Man of the Year makes telling points and has a lot to say, but it loses its voice along with its consistency around the mid-way point, and that will likely make it an also-ran in the box office race.

I think I recall a few of the jokes from the Ford administration. Which makes sense because as irreverent and subversive as it wants to be, it is just bland.

[Barry] Levinson has written and directed in many genres. But rarely has he made a film as indecisive and diffident as Man of the Year.

A few observations about the hollowness of party politics, plus Robin Williams doing lots of funny shtick as a Jon Stewart-like comic running for president, have been thrown together with low regard for logic or consistent tone.

The film's writer-director and headliner are guilty of committing the very crime they warn against -- entertainers taking themselves too seriously.

The Eleanor stuff makes the comedy move more methodically than Tucson's Downtown renewal efforts.

Confusion and mixed messages work against a coherent viewpoint -- and laughs.

Edward Douglas

As well as this may have worked as a comedy ... it tries too hard to be a thriller and a drama, which is where it falls flat on its face.

Many actors were paid to pretend Williams is still funny in Man of the Year.

There's nothing about Man of the Year that's quite as fantastic as its depiction of moribund Saturday Night Live as culturally and politically relevant.

Trust me, a sloppily-edited, unmanageable insult to the intelligence with far too many shortcomings to deserve any further analysis.

It's more Jay Leno than Jon Stewart, and there's no way that's a compliment.

Instead of a highly relevant political satire, writer-director Barry Levinson takes the easy way out and churns a paint-by-numbers tale of corporate malfeasance. Guess he had no special interests in creating a smart, savvy comedy.

Man has the kind of dizzying tonal changes that makes one wonder if a P.A. should've administered a breathalyzer test on Levinson during production.

Man of the Year is longer than the FDR administration, less funny than Calvin Coolidge and deader than Abe Lincoln.

There are good moments, although it doesn't work properly either as a satirical thriller or a rom-com.

Cynicism or stupidity? It's hard to say which has the run of this idiotic satire in which Robin Williams plays a talk-show host who runs for president on a ticket of cleaning up politics.
