If you are the kind of person who watches the History Channel – yet doesn’t mind when the director takes liberty with the facts for the sake of drama – is patient and enjoys lots of dialogue working out every little detail – believes excellent acting alone can save a movie – isn’t irritated by unnecessary tension filled suspense and can wait an hour and forty minutes for a good ending then you’ll like Argo.
Uncle Larry isn’t one of those kind of people. Watching Argo required a bathroom break and large diet soda to keep me awake for the first forty-five minutes. Personally I recommend you wait for home viewing.
On a side note if you enjoy watching a President lie through his teeth and take credit for something he had almost nothing to do with – No, I’m not talking about President Obama and Bin Laden – stick around after the credits and see Jimmy Carter tell you how he pulled it all off but couldn’t tell anyone at the time. Sickening.
