I'm still waiting for the Stone film about Bill Clinton. Oh, I guess he doesn't make mocking films about his fellow liberals.

I might go just to see Richard Dreyfus' subtle take on Dick Cheney, considering that Cheney often comes so close to being a caricature of himself-- his whole crusty old guy thing is fine, but it's hard top see him as a real person.

Considering how the "parody of how conservatives see liberals" movie American Carol and "slander science" movie Expelled did, making such a movie would be a bad business decision.

Another Oliver Stone movie, ho hum. Let me guess;

1. The movie is 4-1/2 hours long
2. Everytime they show GWB it is in black and white.
3. Somehow a conspiracy is involved.

The End.

There, I just saved you all $12.

1. According to IMDB the movie is 131 minutes
2. Trailers show W in color.
3. There are conspiracies in this administration. Scooter Libby ring a bell?

Don't worry getting 1 of 3 right isn't that bad.

Hell, 1 out of 3 pretty much gives you the same % right "W" got on all his mid-term and finals. You could be president. Be proud.

Remember, the truth sucks, so why not embellish it?

Another box office bomb. The more commercials, the worse the movie -so this one must stink.

This review reads like he is trying to justify a rating he deep down knows is too high.

Why was this released now? I wonder who Stone is voting for?
Who is Oliver thinking will want this as entertainment. I am guessing it should have been a poorly rated HBO original.

Bill Clintons story could kinda be a lose adaptaion of the watergate scandal movies... mainly the deep throat. Didn't Billary tight confidant kill himself? And it wsa super mysterious that he'd do that.. Olvier LOOK OVER THERE BIGGER CONSPIRACY ON the left... OLVIER hello??
Cheney is white old and chubby... and he has money.. well then logically he is evil. get serious liberal pukes

Blaugh! Liberals! Blaugh Clinton! Blaugh! Elite!

Bluster, bluster, bluster. I really don't have anything to say. Blaugh!

Although I think that someday I would like to see this movie, now is just not the time. The whole W experience will remain far too painfully fresh for quite some time. I look forward to the day -- soon!-- when we won't have to hear his condescending voice (tortured speech and all) and see his snotty demeanor on a regular basis.

I think that George W.Bush will go down as one of the great presidents in the history of the United States. Since 9/11 we have never had another attack in our country. He is a man of his word and faith. He told us it would be tough. He hoped we would stay the course. Osama bin Laden said that "Americans don't have the stomach for fighting". He was right. Liberals really want everyone to forget there is a war, forget that 9/11 happened, forget that 48 million abortions have occurred in our country alone, forget that Obama has no record whatsoever for change. When he had a chance to stand up for change, he enthusiastically endorsed Todd Stroger. Yes, he stood up to the Chicago Machine all right. So, it is really what liberals desperately want to believe about Bush and about Obama. Truth has no place in the argument. It is my hope that the silent majority will speak and speak loudly with their vote for America, for Pro-Life, and for truth. Vote McCain/Palin.

oliver Stone has made a good living telling lies and harming decent people who have made the misfortune of trying to better our country. Why don't I ever run into Mr. Stone?

What a surprise, known socialist/collectivist hollywood types make a movie that mocks the easiest person in the world to mock. This is pointless because the point has been made many times over. I can watch SNL et all for free and enjoy live performances at the comedy clubs. Won't get my price of admission.

Not the biggest fan of GW but lets be honest all this movie has done is make our country look weak and stupid to the rest of the world. No wonder other countries look at us and think we are "stupid Americans". Regardless of your views as liberals there is still a thing called respect. All this does invite another attack on our country. America is divided and appears weak to the rest of the world. Good job liberals.
Interesting timing on the release of this film.
