DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Despite the appearances of the commercials, this not a straight- ahead Robin Williams comedy nor a political satire, but ultimately a fairly serious conspiracy thriller. Fans of co-star Christopher Walken may be disappointed by his limited screen time.

Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Average Like a politician who waters down his message to gain favor with the masses rather than truly serving his constituency, Man of the Year seems determined to play it safe on all counts.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 174 moviegoers:
TEENS:A little better than half really enjoyed "Man of the Year." Most of the remaining opinions indicate an average to slightly below average movie.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Both the male and female opinions aren't bad, but they aren't great. Less than half the males really enjoyed this movie. Most of the females rated it above average to average, which is kind of on the low side, but not bad. These opinions tell me that "Man of the Year" is an average movie.
ADULTS:About three-quarters of both males and females really enjoyed "Man of the Year." The remaining opinions indicate an average to below average movie. I have no problem recommending this movie but not real strongly.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
With his razor-sharp wit and signature style, acerbic performer Tom Dobbs (ROBIN WILLIAMS) is a guy who has made a career out of skewering politicians and speaking the mind of the exasperated nation on his talk show. He cracks jokes at a fractured system night after night…until he comes up with a really funny idea: why not run for president himself?

After one flip comment too many, Dobbs ignites a grassroots movement that puts him on the presidential ballot. Hot on the campaign trail—with his manager/mentor, Jack Menken (CHRISTOPHER WALKEN), and wisecracking head writer, Eddie Langston (LEWIS BLACK), in tow—he debates elected drones and asks what frustrated voters have so often pondered: "What has happened to leaders' responsibility to the very citizens they serve?”

On election day, Dobbs stuns the unsuspecting world by winning the vote. A shocked country wakes up to find that they have a new leader of the free world…the nation's favorite wiseguy.

But a scrupulous voting-software analyst, Eleanor Green (LAURA LINNEY), soon learns that a glitch in her company's voter software gave Dobbs a victory that was never meant to be his. Her mission? Help Dobbs learn the truth before her Machiavellian employer hunts her down, destroys her credibility and buries the secret of the botched election forever.

Now pursued by both Eleanor and her company's nefarious chief legal counsel, Alan Stewart (JEFF GOLDBLUM), Dobbs has a big decision to make as time ticks on his inaugural clock: should he go back behind the mike or stay in the Oval Office and keep shaking things up?
