This film is brimming with more original ideas than any film should ever be asked to carry. And with Carrey at the centre of it all, it is without a doubt one of the more challenging roles seen in Hollywood history. Jim Carrey is a welcoming surprise and a revelation, delivering a performance of a lifetime. He shows us his sublime ability to understand the character of Truman Burbank by executing it superbly. A great deal of his acting talent comes through strongly, if I may say so myself.
Truman proves to be a real man. If the studio had decided to give Truman an ultimatum at the age of enlightenment, and he chose to accept the life that was presented unto him, without letting the audience know that he was no longer a ‘real’ character, then the show might had been more exciting and even become a greater hit. One life cannot have the entire climax that all audiences enjoy. It is obvious that letting Truman roam free on the set, led to more expenses and more unwanted scenes. If I was one of the main characters I wouldn’t have a real life.

But what does Roger Ebert say about Casablanca? On his webpage he says: “If we identify strongly with the characters in some movies, then it is no mystery that ‘Casablanca’ is one of the most popular films ever made. It is about a man and a woman who are in love, and who sacrifice love for a higher purpose.” He goes on to say that
Thus, democracy and a fair voting group become tainted. I would definitely say that Comedy Central's Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report are part of the "media" that affects people’s opinion. These television shows are a way to provide comedic relief to the issues our economy faces; however, these shows still have an impact of how the viewer will understand an issue at hand. It is very difficult for anyone to be completely unbiased and with constantly hearing other people’s opinion through the media. We cannot make a decision of how “we” feel about the topic.

Nick Bonfiglio Honors Composition II February 9, 2010 Brooke Hessler Stephen Colbert The “Truthiness” of Comic Ingenuity Acclaimed satirist Stephen Colbert has become renowned for his revolutionary comedic style, as well as his amazing marketing techniques that have shot him to the top of the cable ratings within the few years his television show, The Colbert Report, has been in existence. Since 2005, The Colbert Report, a Daily Show spin-off, parodies the conventions of television news broadcasting, particularly cable-personality political talk shows like The O'Reilly Factor, The Glenn Beck Program and Scarborough Country. Colbert hosts the show in-character as a pompous right wing pundit, who in Colbert’s own words is described as a “well intentioned, poorly informed, high status idiot.” (Rabin) Unlike its parent program, the series focuses less on the day-to-day events, more so concentrating on the foibles of the host-character himself. The Report has been nominated for four Emmy Awards for three consecutive years, and has had made a significant cultural impact in the five years it has been on the air. (Lauria) In formulating his radical satirical presence, Colbert developed a unique set of mental processes worth studying for any individual seeking to self actualize themselves in their specialty.
It convenes the message that determination and hard work can surmount any challenge thereby rewriting the American dream in modern lingo. The lead roles are assailed by stars that have already proved their mettle numerous times and it is not surprising that Will Smith - who played Chris Gardener, was nominated for an Oscar for his role in this film. The strength of the story and the power of his character cuts through the script like a blade of steel and the characters alone make evaluating the movie problematic. With their remarkable performances they compensate for any shortcomings that the script might have had. The challenge of the movie was to depict the conflict and tension of Chris Gardener’s life without draining the energy of the viewer.
