Uneven, but never less than entertaining.

Levinson pose les bonnes questions par le biais d'une démarche artistique un peu laborieuse, mais qui n'en demeure pas moins directe et efficace.

If you look the other way and go with it regardless, Man of the Year can be an idealistic pleasure.

It's not a simple genre film, and some will find it complicated to digest for that reason, but if you're up for a bit of intelligent stimulation, this will reward

The Robin Williams you love. A very entertaining movie and a showcase for the brilliant Robin Williams.

Robin Williams turns in his smartest, funniest performance in at least a decade.

A surprisingly complex and dark satire that skewers the media as well as the political process.

Following poor career choices in "RV" and "The Final Cut," Robin Williams is finally back doing what he does best: intelligent stand-up comedy.

Robin Williams, surprisingly subdued here, makes his character as believable as a comedian-turned-president can be.

While they let Williams go, which is good, they don't give him enough time to do so, which isn't. What remains is a hollow political polemic with great acting.

There are several flaws in the story content and the pacing, but this movie still gets my vote.

A genre-less, imaginative riff by an intelligent filmmaker on the state of the country.

It's certainly no political classic, but it's worth at least a couple of electoral votes.

Man of the Year isn't Movie of the Year. It might have been an ironic condemnation of electoral fraud and the malignant sway of corporate profits. But for a while, anyway, it had my vote.

No one will mistake Man of the Year for movie of the year, but it says some things worth being said without the usual straight face.

There's a Preston Sturges lesson in Man of the Year: Entertaining folks is its own civic duty. At times, making citizens laugh (and think) might be the most honorable profession of all.

At a time when politicians are most in question, [director] Levinson feels no qualms about depicting the process as a hilarious and yet dangerous farce.

Williams' scene as Dobbs debating his presidential opponents alone is worth the price of admission to this film. It is laugh-out-loud hysterical.

Mainly it's a shambles, though for once Williams gets to do what he's best at (his stand-up shtick), and the absurd story, no matter how carelessly assembled, keeps moving.
