The Grudge 2

Don’t waste your time. This movie has no plot, makes no sense, and its only gimmick is that stupid kid making that stupid noise throughout the whole film. People should get paid for watching this movie to compensate them for that portion of their lives they’ll never get back.

Robin Williams plays a Daily Show-type comedian who runs for president of the United States and wins. Is a good movie. It pokes fun at American politicians, gives us a few laughs, a car chase and a love story to boot. Rental material.
