Editorial Reviews

After contracting polio from a venomous werewolf bite, FDR won't stop at single-handedly ending the Great Depression and prohibition. With the help of a team of historic figures, he must end WWII by exacting revenge on an army of Nazi-werewolves from the comfort of his Albert Einstein-designed wheelchair of death. An outrageous, over-the-top spoof, FDR: American Badass is the untold true story of our country s greatest monster-hunting president!

FDR: American Badass! is an instant classic (cult classic but still a classic). Barry Bostwick plays an enormously funny FDR that was stricken with Polio when he was bit by a werewolf. This movie has an amazing cast, Kevin Sorbo as a pot smoking Abe Lincoln is just a great addition to an already laugh fun filled movie. If you haven't seen this movie yet you are missing out. Rent or buy you will not be disappointed.

It's crude and it's not the highest budget film in the world, but this movie is exactly what you would want it to be - a campy but hilarious film about a historical figure hunting werewolves. If you go into it knowing that, you can enjoy it.

This is a wonderful movie with a ton of over-the-top performances from the best ensemble cast of a B-grade movie in three years. I especially enjoyed Kevin Sorbo's fabulous performance as our 16th President.

The good folks in this movie are tough and good, and the bad folks are baaaaaaaaad!

Spoilers follow!

The Nazis realize that the US is the wild card in their plans for world domination. The US is led though the indomitable will of the king of "bad ass," FDR. With cleverness not seen since Blood Rayne XVII, the Nazis use one of their foul spawn, a polio infected werewolf, to attack the great man directly.

Fortunately for FDR and the US, super genius Albert Einstein is able to create a series of technological wonders including a heavily armed wheelchair that the President uses to kick significant Nazi petewty.

One disclaimer, if you have a love of historical accuracy or feel that humor is frivolous then you will likely hate this movie.

In service,

Rich

Chock full of one liners; a six pack movie for sure. Barry Bostwick maybe the only actor could have pulled off such an over-the-top portrayal of FDR this well. If you describe yourself as cerebral, or intellectual, the humor maybe a bit crass for you, but knowledge of US/WW II history will make the movie funnier.

I haven't laughed this hard since I was a little kid. Seriously, my abs were hurting. I absolutely recommend this movie, unless you aren't a fan of PURE JOY.

I don't like revisionist historians. You know, the nutjobs that say the Holocaust isn't real. This film kicks them squarely in the balls by proposing Franklin Roosevelt got polio from a werewolf bite. It only gets weirder from there. I didn't particularly like the comedy of the film, but I appreciate the obvious passion that went into making this odd little bit of cinema. There wasn't a big budget, but there's a vast abundance of heart in this movie. If you want a movie to kick back and watch with a few friends and a few drinks, and you're not too strict on how the events of World War II are depicted, grab this title and prepare to have a good time.

I can't believe how good this movie is.... it is a hidden gem and well worth the 5$ I paid for it.

I am kind of sad that this isn't about Teddy and not Franklin as Teddy is the more guns blazing.

The ups and conversely the downs come from Ross Patterson as Cleavon Buford. His character is amazing yet in some scenes they drag on too long making the pace grind to a halt ... but when he is on screen he is the star of the show.

So what you need to know.

Is this a funny movie?
Yes - a lot more jokes hit than miss .... which is saying a lot for a budget movie.

Is the acting well done?
Absolutely, minus my gripe above, everyone does a fantastic job and no one feels like they are phoning it in.

Visuals?
CGI is cheesy as hell, costumes (werewolves) look like low budget Halloween costumes but they really work in this movie ... the CGI is budget and you will notice the air craft aren't exactly era accurate (current civil aviation markings on side) but meh, they aren't the draw of this movie.

Is this movie for kids?
NO - the sex jokes, nudity, and some violence make this NOT for kids.

Should you own this?
Yeah, this is comic gold... seriously I watched Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter and this movie with a fraction of the budget pulled it off.

errr... it is entertaining as all hell. Though I think there was a few swear words they forgot to put in... maybe. If you like beyond foul-mouthed dialog, humpty-dumpty looking werewolves with horrible accents, and a stoned Abe Lincoln that flies, this is your movie.
