Serious Jest: animated beer mug 25% (transparent bkgrd)animated beer mug 25% (transparent bkgrd) (Don’t Bother)  Like The King’s Speech Part 2, but without Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, or the same quality cinematography…or the same quality script…or the same…well, at least it had Murray.  I admire FDR as a President, and some of the historical events portrayed were very interesting, but I would have been just as content reading about them in a short article, rather than burning over an hour and a half on it.  This…movie…was…crazy…sssslowwwwww….
