The Mighty Lame Duck

The Pursuit of Sappyness

Bobby is director/actor/Charlie Sheen's brother Emilio Estevez' love song to Robert F Kennedy and the turbulent era that he was the new voice of. More importantly, it reunites The Mighty Ducks' coach with his star player Charlie Conway, aka Pacey, aka Josh Jackson. While I golf clap EE's earnest attempt at creating a Robert Altmanesque bazillion character crossover joint, taking place at LA's Ambassador Hotel on June 6th, 1968, the date of RFK's assassination, this joint will only light the hearts of anyone who's 45 years or older.

The main problem that I had with the film is that I couldn't care less than two shits (maybe even one) about said bazillion characters roaming around the hotel, talking about The Graduate, Warhol's soup cans, and even tripping on acid with Ashton Krunchyner. If you name yer film Bobby, then there should be nothing but. Maybe I'm juss spoiled after takin in the bestness that was JFK, Nixon, and sure, why not, Dick. Luckily the brothers Weinstein forced a lot o archival footage of RFK into the film cause had they not, this woulda been a bigger cheesefest and disaster than last summer's Poseidon ['s review]. The other issue I have with this flick is how do you cast the NSFW goodlyness of Sharon Stone, Demi Moore, Heather Graham, Helen Hunt, Svetlana Metkina, Joy Bryant, and Her Former Royal Thighness Lohag, and the only nudity we get is Shia Where'stheLeBeouf's arse cheeks?

Possible Porno Name: the Spanish classic Bob y Kneel

IMDb Sweeney: in the '74 TV movie The Missiles of October, Martin Sheen portrayed RFK to William Devane's JFK, even though Devane looks more like Bobby, but Sheen nine years later got his due and portrayed Jack in the '83 miniseries Kennedy, but nothing tops David Kobzantsev, who has now stepped into the shoes of assassin Sirhan Sirhan TWICE!
