    Very entertaining movie. Hollywood doing what Hollywood should be doing - entertaining. Good plot flow and acting from Hanks and Hoffman. Roberts seemed alittle stiff and was maybe miscast. Where is the real Charlie Wilson now? Highly recommended for adults.

    SOCIAL INTERACTION: BASED ON TRUE
    EVENTS, THIS ENTERTAINING FARE FEATURES EXCELLENT PERFORMANCES FROM HANKS AND ROBERTS. DON'T
    EXPECT THIS TO BE HISTORICALLY TOTALLY ACCURATE, DO EXPECT A VERY AN ENTERTAINING MOVIE.

    Well acted, great screenplay. Hanks does a great job. You can wait until the DVD comes out but if you need to go to the movies, this is the one.

    This movie, quite frankly, is this essenence of entertainment. Based on a true story of relevant, significant, importance, Charlie Wilson's story should be known by all, regardless of the film representation. The film representation is superb. From the moment Charlie Wilson appears in this movie, you know it is special. Tom Hanks plays the indominable Charlie Wilson, bumbling along as a institutionaliz ed, do-nothing Congressman, more concerned with hiring boobs and insuring re-election than any of his constituent's issues and concerns.
    Reality smacks cocooned Charlie quite hard when the the Afghan plight is placed front and center for his review. Congressman Wilson's inadvertent position of power and influence, his penchant for whimsically ordering things done, and specifically his power do redirect black funds within Congresses budget without scrutiny resulted in the largest covert war in history. The CIA war support was a success.
    The rest is...

    Philip Seymour Hoffman is superb and unfaltering as the rogue CIA spook that greases the side car wheels. I predict a nod for supporting actor.
    See this movie. It is educational laugh out-loud fare that will keep you wanting more. Everyone in the theatre knows the resulting mess derived form this affair in Afganistan, but keep in mind while demonizing the Taliban enablers - the Cold War effectively ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall. The wall fell nine months after the Afgan victory.
    Charl ie did it? Indeed he did.
