Time Out saysSellers' performance - as the innocent neuter figure who rises accidentally to political power on the strength of vacant homilies - is remarkable. But Ashby's direction is marred by the same softness that made The Last Detail and Coming Home so morally bland. What emerges in the end is a strange ambiguity of attitude to the American political system and a hollow humour about cultural values. The cinema of cynicism, really.
