A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Crude.  Offensive.  Historically inaccurate.  Insulting to the memory of a remarkable President.
And funny as all get out!!!

Barry Bostwick stars in the title role as FDR, a loud, brash, foulmouthed Governor who is stricken with polio after being attacked by a Nazi werewolf in 1931.   Undaunted, he runs for President anyway and gets elected with a little help from "Repube" Congressman Cleavon Beauford of Georgia, and his beautiful wife Marietta, who pledge to perform oral sex on the entire state of Georgia in order to carry the state for FDR.  Longtime character actress Linn Shay plays Eleanor Roosevelt, who loves her husband but is so turned off by his withered little polio legs that she is unable to sleep with him for 14 years. Kevin Sorbo rocks as the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, who smokes weed with Roosevelt while advising him on how to fight off the Nazi Werewolf menace. Longtime Bmovie actor Bruce Mcgill plays FDR's sidekick Lewis, and Ray Wise plays General MacArthur, nicknamed "Dougie Mack."  An amusing minor character is Roosevelt's gay son James, who enjoys pooping in flower vases. (NO, I am NOT kidding!)
The basic plot is that the Werewolf Axis, led by the wolf versions of Hitler, Tojo, and Mussolini,  are trying to take over the world, and FDR is trying to stop them with the aid of his friend Winston Churchill.   Favorite scnes: the three way conference calls between the three Axis wolfmen, and Hitler's game of "beer pong" with a topless German milk maid.  Also the absolutely senseless and vulgar celebration by FDR and his family when he wins the Presidency is a masterpiece of cinematic crudity that still, somehow, manages to be amusing.  To see some fairly respected actors hamming it up in such a silly movie is a real treat. Now, I will say that there were some historical inaccuracies here and there.

For one thing, the game of beer pong was not invented until the 1980's.
Also, Roosevelt acquired polio from a radioactive werewolf bite in the early 1920's, not in 1931.
And MacArhtur's nickname was actually "G-Mack," not "Dougie Mack."

Other than that, the film is painstakingly accurate, especially the scene where FDR personally leads the bombing run that kills Hitler on D-Day.

This is the Holy Grail of bad movies.  See it NOW!!!!

This sounds more like something the other Roosevelt would be in.

I hope there's a Franklin Pierce movie. It could be called FRANKLIN PIERCE - Yes, I was a President!

Just the title of this made me smile.  TeddyR

Having said that, I read your description and I can't find any historical inaccuracies in the film at all. None.  Wink

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
