Tim Robbins stars as BOB ROBERTS, a radical folksinger turned senatorial candidate, in this satirical comedy that blends his campaign trail with singing, music videos and scandal. BOB ROBERTS is a hilarious film that will change the way you look at American politics!

Tim wrote, directed, and starred in this pseudo-bio of a right-wingnut congressional candidate who parlays his show-biz fame into politics. Sound familiar in 2026? This was made in the 80s!
Unfortunately, the latter part of the film gets into uber-conspiracy theories linking all of the great scandals of the Reagan-Bush years into one massive plot. I'm unsure if Robbins meant for the film imply that there was such a great linkage, but, considering its very political nature, I must suspect he does feel that there is truth behind his fictional accusations. And I've grown quite tired of claims of massive government conspiracy.
So ultimately, I'd say this is worth watching, but should be taken with a grain of salt.
