Although it would be quite a stretch to call Ben Affleck’s movie about the 1979 Iran hostage a comedy, Argo is exceptional enough and has just the right amount of comedy in it for us to recommend it. Alan Arkin, John Goodman, and Bryan Cranston round out the cast of CIA and Hollywood guys pretending to make a sci-fi movie in order to get a group of Americans out of Iran. The movie won best motion picture drama at the Golden Globes and Ben Affleck took home best director, so get the DVD (or the Blu-Ray combo pack) if you haven’t seen it yet and then see how it fares and what jokes Seth MacFarlane makes about it at the Oscars this weekend.
