For the most part this movie is superbly funny in it's sheer absurdity. Having seen the documentary this is based on, Crazy Rulers of the World, I knew what was fiction and what wasn't (and you'll be suprised by how much isn't fake). However the film's narrative nose-dives during the final act and the final 5 minutes completely fall apart. Still it has some fantastic humour in it that is grounded in reality, believe it or not.

With such a fine cast and a decent premise it botched completely. I was only mildly entertained in the Bridges' psi corps initiation sequence.

It's relatively funny movie that's main plot was not as good as the flashback sub-plot. The cast is really good and in worse hands this film could really have been a stinker. To me it's a movie that I enjoyed but probably won't watch again unless I happen upon it on TV.

Offbeat comedy that chronicles the history of a secret detachment of psychic super-soldiers during the 80s. Jeff Bridges and Clooney are both pretty good, but Kevin Spacey's character was woefully underwritten, he doesn't seem to have any reason for being such a dick. Lots of laughs (including, yes, a man staring at a goat), even if the preachy ending falls with a heavy handed, eye rolling thud. Bonus points to Ewen McGregor for not letting his accent slip once that I noticed.

It's certainly not bad but its mainly funny in a I-see-what-you-did there way. Mainly I was laughing at people telling Ewan McGregor he could be a Jedi. He is! I sat through all three of those films dammit.
