If you can suspend your political affiliation and allow yourself to enjoy a decidedly skewed, heavily dramatised and incomplete account of Cheney's life you will thoroughly enjoy this film. The cast play a blinder - Carell was an inspired choice, chewing up any scene he's in - and there is a wealth of really interesting subject material to draw upon. Despite its advertised biases, the film succeeds in humanising it's characters and avoids the temptation of demonising them completely. The pacing is good, the dialogue is sharp and the there is some welcome comic relief throughout. Watch.
Proof that an excellent cast can't compensate for poor writing. Billed as a 'comedy' that is sparse on the lols and heavy on preachy social justice themes. It is hard to wring laughs out of a format like this, but in the hands of a more nuanced or skilled writing team this could have been passable. This film is targeted at a specific demographic, of which I am unlikely to be a part. For its target audience, this will deliver the desired comfort-viewing and provide affirmation for underlying beliefs.
