Good acting, esp of course Daniel Day-Lewis.
Basically it's a shallow ho-hum Hollywood movie. No surprises. A plot that could be on any TV show, not even a very good one.
There were a couple of decent jokes in there, esp one about George Washington.
A movie that will be quickly forgotten, though it will probably win a few awards.
Could have almost reviewed it in 140 characters, decided to write just a few more. :-)
Worth seeing, but not with a whole lot of enthusiasm.
