I see closet republican reviewer who appears to be afraid of the parallels in this movie.

@bartlet, if you read Morgenstern, even occasionally, you'd know he's one of the toughest reviewers around and I don't think politics play a big role in his reviews. Dorothy Rabinowitz he is not.

"I want happy and this movie is sad. Therefore it is bad."
