Quote from: Unbeliever on September 02, 2022, 11:46:27 PMI just watched a Robin Williams movie on YouTube I'd never heard of, called Man of the Year, in which the main character, played by Robin Williams, runs for president. What a great movie! Have any of y'all seen it? Parts of it put me in mind of Trump's run for that office, but only a little. It's got some other great actors as well, such as Jeff Goldblum, Lewis Black and Christopher Walken.
