I've seen the commercials, and have seen Robin on a few shows this past week (David Letterman, Bill Maher)

Looks like it will be funny...

I think it looks hilarious and want to see it.

I love the mention of Springsteen as Secretary of State.

A little skeptical with Robin Williams as the choice. He's not a comedian like they're using.

Make the movie with Stewart or Colbert and it makes three times as much at least.

Yeah, I'm with you. Looks like it would be hilarious if it were anyone but Robin Williams.

I used to like him, but these days he's just like nails on a chalkboard for me.

Can you imagine how funny this movie would be if it starred John Stewart?

robin williams' comedys have been disapointing of late, but i will see this for these three reasons...

1. director barry levinson's done wag the dog, rain man, the natural, good morning vietnam, all of which i quite enjoy
2. christopher walken
3. lewis black

as for the thoguhts that jon stewart should be in it instead of robin williams... ummmm... were your posts all made... on weeeeeeeeeed?

seriously though... williams is an accademy award winner... stewart was one of the pot smokers in half baked.

stewart's hilarious on the daily show, but, um, yea... he's not exactly an accomplished actor.

Yeah, but Stewart's less irritating than Robin Williams.

I'd love to see Jon Stewart do it in real life. On screen, though, it has to be somebody else. Otherwise, it's just clearly a "what would happen if Jon Stewart ran" quasi-fiction. It needs to be somebody else in order to keep the suspension of disbelief alive.

plus RW looks like Bono, so everyone here should love it.

But those are the same reasons I want to see it too, especially the Black/Walken tandem.
