FDR: American Badass (2012)- Oh My Freakin’ Gawd, This Movie Is Ridiculously Funny
Up until two nights ago, I never even heard of this movie, and now I want to tell everyone about it… This movie is so darn funny.
Starring Barry Bostwick (the Mayor from Spin City among many other rolls), in the title roll of FDR who must stand up (pun intended) against the Axis Werewolf forces of Germany, Italy and Japan. Inflicted with Polio when he was bit by a werewolf on a hunting trip in 1933, FDR goes on to take the presidency and lead the free world in it’s battle against the Evil Werewolves.
Peppered with references to the real FDR’s policies, this is NOT a biopic: this is one of the funniest comedies I’ve seen in so long. With so many jokes back to back, if on fails, don’t worry as the next one will get you. The acting is surprisingly good (with a lot of “that guy” actors), and for such a silly concept, written rather well. This is a movie that had me laughing from start to finish. Hell, I liked it so much that I watched it twice in one week. Full of cursing and sexual innuendos, so if you’re some kind of prude don’t watch it (and stop reading my blog), but if that doesn’t bother you then you MUST see this movie.
