Charlie Wilson's War
Rating: Active Eruption
Hilarious romp through an often forgotten phase of American political history: the 1980s and the nearing end of the cold war. Based on a true story about Congressman Charlie Wilson of Texas, this tale is wonderfully entertaining, with witty dialogue, superb acting by A list stars, and a tight story line. The previews to this movie really don't do it justice; there are so many scenes that will have you laughing and others that will make you proud to be an American. One of the best movies of this award season (and the pickings are slim this year!) Definitely do not miss this movie.
