Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film Observe and Report

I wouldn't pass it off as dark, maybe the people behind it were in the dark as far as the making of it went, but it's more or less exploitative type vulgarity trying to come off as a black comedy. It lacks many things to make this possible, obviously the comedy part in trying to come off as serious with its lead, who's rather a pitiful, unenlightened fuck up for the sake of being a pitiful, unenlightened fuck up.
