Mr. Lemmon and Mr. Garner are such pros that they carry the movie smoothly over its dull patches.

A pleasing but mediocre film, with a great cast, a great story and a misguided script.

This is not a great comedy and will be soon forgotten, but it has nice moments.

Okay, so it's Midnight Run meets All The President's Men, but the Lemmon-Garner rapport is dynamite...

With two of the screen's best comedic actors, a script that crackles with wit and surprise, and perfectly tuned direction, My Fellow Americans scores a bull's-eye.

A gang-written comedy that doesn't have a political bone in its body, or much evidence of a funny one, either.

Shameless laughs flow off the prefab assembly line with sufficient regularity to please audiences...

The funny-crankpots genre wears mighty thin on this road trip.

Garner and Jack Lemmon have enough charisma, and there are enough solid laughs, to mostly overcome My Fellow Americans' embarrassing moments...

It takes a special actor's grace to survive a script as lame as My Fellow Americans, and James Garner has it.

The movie suggests we get the government we deserve, but do we really deserve this movie?

I'd cheerfully vote the writers, director and producers of My Fellow Americans out of office.
