The crux of the film does however gets lost in translation at times about loving unconditionally, and where sacrifices have to be made. When you mix realism and with a comic satire, then you only get some goods sparks with a film like this.
The concept of showing our dire straits America is facing, is all relevant, but the impact gets dry towards the end of the film. The highlight is the uncompromising position that former Mayor Rudy Guiliani is in, when he is in a hotel for an interview. To me I felt he got caught. It looked real. Overall the film is an average affair.
His character does have shades of his earlier character in “Waterboy”, which I felt was a rehash as plays the role of “Hubie Dubois”. The way he would mumble his lines are very similar to that earlier movie. Despite all that it is a light hearted comedy that you can enjoy with your family this weekend.
Every child wants to look up to their parent for acceptance, even seeks guidance when they stumble. Even if they are getting the wrong wisdom, they still wish to be the apple of their eyes. It is indeed a melancholy feeling watching this film, but refreshingly new to absorb.
