Based on his far left history, Roger Moore would seamlessly fit into the staff of Pravda.

Did Mr. Moore actually sit thru the entire film, or just read the press release and decide he didn't like it?
Opening weekend blockbuster tops them all. Thank you, Mr Eastwood for bringing perspective and stepping on "P.C."

This review would have been complete without the author's self-centered political comments.

This"But it's an amiable and amusing sociology lesson, both for the people who can't get over the fact that a black man is about to become their president, as well as the more P.C. folks who elected him" sounds like the only reason anyone would vote for Obama is they wanted to be PC ... is hogwash. He was and remains the better candidate for the job.

We will see how effective a president he is as his term plays out, just as any other president. That is not PC, that's politics.

Should of? Try "should have".

And, BTW - a pretty lame & trashy film, IMHO. Not deserving of accolades, awards... or ticket price!!

Time for Mr. Eastwood to retire.

Based on your clearly elitist attitude, I'm betting you didn't see the film.

"And, BTW - only a pretty lame & trashy" individual, "IMHO", of low intellect and character feels the need to build themselves up by pointing out grammar issues on internet threads. Do you regularly correct people in conversation? I bet you're fun to be around.
