Barry Levinson's 1997 black comedy "Wag the Dog" (Robert DeNiro, Dustin Hoffman) was far-fetched to some, but all-too-believable to others. Now Levinson is back with another film likely to get those same disparate reactions.
Robin Williams stars in "Man of the Year", the story of a Jon Stewart-type TV host whose campaign for president is not just outrageous, but outrageously successful. Opens mid-October, just in time to prepare us for the November elections. The trailer has more laughs than most full-length comedies. (Thanks to Boing Boing for turning me on to this one.)
