A great underrated movie

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect before watching this flick but I was eventully pleasantly surprised by the whole thing. Indeed, this is another underrated movie about politics, a subject which I always find really spellbinding. Furthermore, it is, I believe, one of the last great movies starring Robert de Niro and Dustin Hoffman as they both didn't do many great movies after that. Basically... read more

Viimeinen elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (378 movies items)

"18.8. (DVD) Unholaan painuneessa poliittisessa satiirissa De Niro palkkaa Hoffmanin tekemään kuvitteellisen sodan Yhdysvaltain ja Albanian välille, jotta äänestäjien katseet saataisiin käännettyä pois istuvan presidentin seksiskandaalista. Salaliittoteoreetikoille oikein hyvä makupala teatterihengessä."

30 From 97: My Favorite Films From 1997 (30 movies items)

"And speaking of which.... Just like my parents taught me, I've come to believe that "wagging the dog" was likely to leave a person blind. And I mean that in a political sense, not a masturbatory one. Seriously, though, in this film the Dusty Hoffman teams up with De Nironator to prove that this duo combo of actors does not need to rely on the sophomoric use of the name of "Fockers" in order to provide a piece of quality cinema entertainment. A satisfying and smart satirical spin on the proces"
