For me this was one of Warren Beattys best performance, but because of the message. Wrapped inside a crazy comedy, we understand why Big Pharma and the Sickcare industry does not want us to have socialized medicine and Obamacare is NOT socialized healthcare by any stretch of the imagination. Its "you buy that expensive health insurance or I will hit you in your pocket just the same", healthcare. Joseph Goebbels would have been proud of the Obama administration. This movie also presents in comedy form, how widespread miscegenation is the only way to truly get rid of racism, which I don't think its true, just look at Latin America, there is still racism there despite 100s of years of miscegenation, but I get the point, black and white becomes more unclear and you should be left with no choice but to judge on character as MLK said. The movie also explains why post-1960s the economic well-being of the African-American community went downhil and so did real leaders such as MLK, Malcolm, Black Panthers, Deacons for Defense, where we are just left with poverty pimps like J. Jackson and A. Sharpton and the Bubba Gump lawyer with their fake Diamond Eugene from the T. Martin case. Great movie, a must watch, you get knowledge and laughs and Warren Beatty rapping throughout the whole darn thing and making political sense while doing it, timeless.
