Review: 'Fred Claus' is more folly than Jolly (New movie starring Roger Clinton) ^ | November 8, 2007 | Craig Outhier

Excerpt -

In the most surreal and, Santa help us, only truly interesting moment in "Fred Claus," none other than former presidential sibling Roger Clinton stands up and delivers a heartfelt confession about the pain of living in a more accomplished brother's shadow.

As Clinton blubbers about love and devotion and "being there" for his kin, it all eerily comes into focus: The bulbous nose, the ruddy skin, the faint Ozarkian drawl … this guy really IS a mutant version of Bill Clinton! And, then, another revelation: He genuinely IS messed-up!

And that's all the pathos or humor you're likely to find in this holiday-tinted tale of sibling rivalry, in which Vince Vaughn and "Wedding Crashers" director David Dobkin reunite for the most anemic Christmas comedy since, oh, the last time Tim Allen donned white whiskers and a fat-suit.

Hillary has to get her no-good brothers and brother-in-law cleaned up for the campaign. This movie is the first step in Roger's political rehabilitation, but they'll keep him locked in the basement most of the time until the election is over.

The last time I heard from Roger's former girlfriend, he was still delinquent in his child support payments. I won't be surprised if Bill is making those payments for Roger now - per Hillary's demand.
