Felt like a long unfunny Communist propaganda

I don't know too much about Italy's politics. The ones I met who came from there said it is bad and corrupt. This is all I know. If I knew the details maybe I would see the movie in a different way. But as a foreigner it was just bad to me.

The whole movie felt like communist propaganda. All politicians are evil, some fisherman will come and really care about people giving away money to them. They even have a scene singing a song about Che Guevara. The scenes where he throws his family and friends under the bus for illegal activities remind me of communist propaganda in Russia where a boy got his father killed for "truth". At the end there are a few minutes where he says that we are all crooked and should look at that and start the change with ourselves. Was a beautiful message but too small in such a long movie that feels like promoting a totally different thing.

I would even rate it higher as a communist propaganda if it at least was funny, but it wasn't. Here is where I think there might have been a difference if I knew more references. But I doubt it would be that big. The actors are good but nothing they say or do is very funny.

Great movie.

It is super funny and very well written movie for me. I always think like Mr. president, solutions are very simple but no one wants to solve them. I think everyone must see this movie. My favorite in 2020.

Pathetic

An ordinary and rather dumb-witted guy becomes elected as the Italian president and proceeds to wreak havoc in Rome.

Claudio Bisio is a talented comedian who can do much better than this. The supporting cast is also wasted in what is a predictable but unfunny farce that can amuse only the most unsophisticated audience.

The final touch of disgrace is the presence of the unavoidable young and sexy starlet (a key role in all low-level Italian comedies), whose only purpose is to "fall in love" with the much older (and usually unattractive lead) to show her naked (or scantily dressed) body, for the titillation of the male audience.

That wouldn't necessarily be a problem if the plot was funny, but it isn't, delivering platitudes such as: all politicians are corrupted; power corrupts even the best people; procedures are ridiculous; etc...
