The Distinguished Gentleman Reviews

June 4, 2018
This lightweight political sitcom takes awkward narrative jumps and sags in the middle...despite some taut byplay between Lane Smith and Joe Don Baker, the outcome is too obvious to be gratifying.

An OK Murphy vehicle, but still the same old hip black guy smarter than the white men routine.

Tepid Eddie Murphy political farce.

This is screwball material, and Murphy, with his quick delivery, is ideal for a laughaminute roller coaster, but director Jonathan Lynn seems to stretch out the scenes instead of hurrying them along.
