W. Bush. Love him or hate him, Bush has held America’s top post through some of our most trying times, and most everyone has a strong opinion on his job performance. Most everyone, it seems, except Stone.

“W.” is a bad movie for many reasons but the most noteworthy is its lack of a valuable viewpoint. Rather than take a brave and unusual stance on our president’s life, Stone and company are content to recycle common stereotypes.

Bush that critics have presented for the past eight years.
