WED­NES­DAY MAN OF THE YEAR

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, FOXTEL COM­EDY ★★★

Robin Wil­liams plays a pop­u­lar TV talk-show host who runs for pres­i­dent. Appointing his gag writ­ers as key ad­vis­ers, the long­shot can­di­date grad­u­ally be­comes a se­ri­ous con­tender for some Oval Of­fice ac­tion. A rare main­stream com­edy that can be both en­joyed and ad­mired. Not all the risks taken pay off, but some of Wil­liams’ best work is al­ways on the money.
