Especially liked the take on Williams and humor. I do agree about Rainbow Randolph, one of his funnier roles in recent years, but he has lost something. I hadn't quantified it until reading the review, but that blank look when he's on now is what bothers me too. You can't phone in funny.

In fact, "The Colbert Report" is so superior to "The Daily Show" in every way that it's easy to forget Colbert is a spin-off of Daily. Jon Stewart's show is basically 22 minutes of "Bush is dumb". There are no other jokes. The difference between "Daily Show" and "Colbert Report" is as wide as the difference between sarcasm and satire. Stephen Colbert is a brilliant satirist, sending up Bill O'Reilly and never breaking character while doing it. Stewart is a preening ass, who spends more time laughing at his own jokes than he does telling them.

But this movie impressed me in that it really is not a very polital biased film. Both sides are taking shots.

is that you don't have to tell jokes. You just sit back and let the current administration tell them for you.Then you can just do color commentary like your on monday night fucking football...

"Jon Stewart's show is basically 22 minutes of "Bush is dumb". There are no other jokes. " Well, at least you've proved that you don't actually watch the show, so we don't need to take your criticism seriously.

Not to get off on political battling, but Bush pretty much puts himself on that show everytime he speaks, which isnt ALL THE TIME.

Death to Smoochy was absolutely hilarious in that sick and wrong sort of way. Robin Williams finally picked a role outside his huggable, lovable, and very tiresome characters. He's been doing that a bit more often lately. I hope he can play some more psychos, because he's proven to be pretty damned good at that.

It has been a long time since Robin Williams has been funny in anything, he should stick to more serious roles that he seems better suited to now. As for the Daily Show, it still has it moments, but no where near as funny as the Stephen Colbert, Steve Corell days.

Anti-administration jokes and retarded "off-beat", random voices and horrible impersonations is NOT FUNNY. The people who watch the Daily Show are the same people who flock to the theaters to see movies like Barnyard, Open Season, Man of the Year, An Inconvenient Truth and dumbass black comedy movies. I watch the Daily Show just to understand the stark contrast between it and the Colbert Report, which is basically, just as JohnGalt 06 stated, sarcasm and satire. Buzzsawlenny and Sean38, your godless liberalism is mind-numbing and serves as rule-of-thumb as how to spot isolationist sphincters who have a skewed world outlook and think that bashing your own leaders helps anyone including yourselves. War and oil aren't our biggest problems, it's people who believe that human beings have the power to destroy the world when we didn't create it. Environmentalism, global warming and cancer-causing second-hand smoke are the most popular tools of liberals to envoke fear into voters by pretending like they have the answer to problems that don't even exist. The Daily Show sucks.

In Latin countries we do not use both last names, only the father's. So if your name is Alejandro Gonzalez (father's last name) Inarritu (mother's last name), we simply call that person Alejandro Gonzalez. Only cheap soap operas would use both last names, and nobody would use the second last name by itself while omitting the father;s last name. Dismissed.

That Williams vehicle looks HORRIBLE. God, am I the onoly one who thuinks that watching Robin Williams is the cinematic equivalent of being lightly sexually molested. He's so creepy, never more so that when he's trying to be cute; those merciless little eyes and that slack retarded beaming smile. Like the Terminator dressed up in the flesh of a mongoloid child. And when he curses, as in Death to smoochy; it's horrible, like an imitation of someone else; the mongo pretending to be Bill Hicks.
