An American Carol In Concord

It has been since the first Spiderman movie that I have heard an audience applaud – or maybe it was V For Vendetta, doesn’t matter, it has to be a pretty well made movie with a message to get that type of audience response.

An American Carol gets that type of response. It did tonight anyway - in of all places, Concord, NH, home of many Obama bumper stickers and government employees.

The movie is just like the old Airplane series, slapstick and one-liners, with a tendency to repeat a successful bit to the point of excess. But then you know what they say about comedy, its all about………………………………………………………………timing.

Liberals and goofy liberal ideas get skewered rather hard, but it is in good fun.

The lines and bits come fast and furious so you may have to catch the movie a few times to absorb all of the subtle as a pie in the face action. Or maybe get to laugh once more at material you don’t find in Hollywood “films”.

It is almost as though this formula comedy has provided an opportunity to take a break from all the nastiness of the final weeks of a modern presidential campaign. Only this one is unusual in that it is geared for conservatives and regular people.

Go see it.
