This week's reviewed movie is:
Charlie Wilson's War




Gene the Barber

Tom Hanks plays Texan Congressman Charlie Wilson, who masterminded the covert war against Russia in Afghanistan, thus ending the Cold War.

This is really a fun-loving guy -- and the rarest of movies -- a smart comedy for grown-ups that delivers its humor from intelligent dialog, not grossed-out humor and bare breasts.

Charlie Wilson's War is funny and features some great performances.

It's one of the best pictures of the year, and you will have a great time watching while those messages are being delivered.

Mike Nichols puts his finger directly on the pulse of government spending in this satirical look at the mismanagement of politics and its priorities.

Tom Hanks plays uber party animal Charlie Wilson, who is called upon to help the Afghan rebels at the end of the Cold War.

It's a witty look at politics, war, and the rats maze of government funding.

Charlie Wilson's War is heavy with talent. The cast features three Oscar winners and two nominees.

It has a rapid pace, smart screenplay, and top-notch acting.

In my view, it could be one of the most appealing and compelling adult movies in the 2007 Oscar season.

What I liked about this clever, informative comedy-drama is that it's based on a true story.
