I used to think highly of Al Franken
2 February 2008 | by Stefan-SommerSee all my reviews

I used to think highly of Al Franken before I saw this film. My political orientation is left and I despise the right-wing. In Al Franken: God Spoke, Al Franken and his producers make themselves out to be weak, ineffectual communicators. They make the right wing folks look like they have a focused message, wrong as it might be. There is really only one moment when this film successfully points out the wrongs of the right and that has to do with comparing Iraq with California. The remainder of this film's message is very unfocused and shows the producers and Al Franken to be bumbling idiots who have nothing better to do than follow the republicans around to moan about how wrong they are. With folks like them involved, no wonder Kerry lost! We need some leadership on the left if we ever expect to have a chance of winning. Come on Al Fanken!!! Was your brain on Holiday?

This film is not in keeping with Al Franken's excellent books which exposes the right wing's lies, lack of integrity, and complete lack of any morals whatsoever. This film simply makes Al Franken out to be a bumbling and ineffectual individual. Does Al really endorse this film...?
