646f9e108c An outrageous, over-the-top spoof, FDR: American Badass is the untold true story of our country's greatest monster-hunting president!
&#39;FDR: American Badass&#39; is one of those movies that I rate high mostly because it is completely outrageous, hilarious, and unique. In comparison to a film like &#39;Citizen Kane&#39; do I think that this is a great movie? No, but it sure is fun as hell to watch, especially with a few friends and a few beers. The movie follows Franklin Delano Roosevelt from the time he was stricken with polio to his campaign for president, to World War II. Is it holistically accurate? Well, I doubt it, but if you want history watch the history channel, if you want to laugh watch this movie.<br/><br/>Although this movie did not have a huge Hollywood budget, there are still some well known actors involved including Barry Bostwich (Spin City), Lin Shaye (Detroit Rock City), and even Kevin Sorbo…yes Hercules! The writer himself makes an appearance as Cleavon Buford, a swinging (and I mean that in the sense of key parties) southern repube…not repub, and I must say he brings a lot to the table. Having well known actors is a great asset, because even with a small budget, experienced actors allow it to not seem like a small budget film.<br/><br/>This movie is what I consider to be a &quot;pee your pants comedy,&quot; which I think is pretty much self explanatory. It doesn&#39;t make me think, it doesn&#39;t make me fall in love with the characters, it just makes me laugh. &quot;Pee your pants comedies&quot; are also great because they have so much re-watch value. Unlike a movie like &#39;The Sixth Sense,&#39; which loses half of its appeal after you learn the twist, &#39;FDR: American Badass&#39; can be watched until it doesn&#39;t make you laugh anymore. This movie doesn&#39;t try to be anything that it is not, and I think that is important, because we all know that if you paint stripes on a horse it doesn&#39;t make it a zebra.
At first I thought this would be funny. The premise gave the clear impression that it would be a great spoof. Then I started to watch it. I laughed a bit admittedly as much because seeing FDR drop &quot;F&quot; bombs caught me off guard, but didn&#39;t find myself in hysterics over it. I was tired, I went to bed. This morning I went back just a bit before I left off. I looked at this movie in a whole new way. I turned my brain off and found myself really getting a kick out of this. I didn&#39;t look at it as a cheap low budget movie that was trying too hard, but instead saw it for what I believe it is, a brilliantly acted and written movie that isn&#39;t trying too hard, but trying just enough to LOOK like a cheap low budget &quot;B&quot; movie. Now and then I forget that if a movie is made to LOOK like a cheap BAD movie, it&#39;s accomplishing the goal so well, you believe that&#39;s exactly what you&#39;re watching and you don&#39;t see the tongue planted firmly in the cheek. I missed that last night but saw it plain as day this morning. This movie is FUNNY if you just pay attention without really thinking it through too much. Yeah, I just confused myself, but I stand by all that. <br/><br/>Barry Bostwick does a bang up job as does his supporting cast, all of whom are some of the best character actors out there. Anyone who watches this and finds themselves disappointed should do as I did, watch it again with a different outlook and odds are, you&#39;ll appreciate
