CHICAGO – Chris Rock isn’t a huge writer/director, but when he does make a film, it’s an event to consider.

CHICAGO – USA’s mini-series “Political Animals” should have been one of the TV events of 2012. Instead it was just one of its biggest disappointments. That cast! That subject! In a political, election season! Zzzzzzz.
