Oliver Stone’s new movie is not as much fun as the previews — which leads me to think that the optimal format for a Bush biopic might be a music video — and most of the performances are pretty bad. In fact, watching it felt a little like sitting through a not-very-funny, two-hour-long “Saturday Night Live” sketch without Tina Fey.
Too bad. I’d been looking forward to seeing this; this trailer does make it look like a good bit of fun.
It reminds me of when one of the first trailers for Star Wars Episode One came out — the trailer was dramatic, exciting, suspenseful, crisply edited– everything that the turgid, boring, interminable stinker of a film was not. They should have let whoever cut the trailer edit the actual movie!
