What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Yes there are some crude jokes, yes its a reference to other movies in the past, but it cloaks an underlying witty satire that many people (critics included) seem to completely miss. If you stay informed with events and politics, this is hilarious. If you don't, you'll miss a lot.
