Sort of like a history lesson told by 7th graders who are on acid--but it VERY quickly loses momentum
"FDR: American Badass!" is a very frustrating movie. While I loved the audacity of the plot and loved some of the VERY low humor, the film, overall, is pretty bad. It looks like a film that really needed a rewrite here and there and the low humor was sometimes so low that it made me feel ashamed to watch it. In fact, eventually I just turned the thing off--it was that bad.
The film starts off wonderfully....really wonderfully. In fact, it was so good I was expecting to love the film. In this bizarre alternate reality, it's 1931 and Franklin Roosevelt CAN walk. However, he and his friends are attacked by a Nazi werewolf and FDR kills it--but only after it bites him and gives him polio!! These scenes and those in the hospital, though crude, made me laugh out loud several times. I was ashamed of myself...but it WAS very funny.
Unfortunately, what follows proved that although they had a great idea, the writers didn't have any more. The film was filled with too much scatological humor (I am talking about REALLY scatological--literally) and the repeated sexual references become boring and boorish. In fact, it starts to look like a movie written by a group of 7th graders--really, really crude ones at that. In fact, the film degenerated quickly to a totally unfunny mess. I turned it off when you see Roosevelt Jr. talking a dumb in a pitcher (and they showed it). Why?! What's funny about this? Who would give them money to make this? Were they drunk or on acid when they made this?! I dunno--all I know is that after initially loving the film, I quickly tired of it and couldn't take any more.
