Amusing but heavy-handed

“The parallels to modern politics are obvious, so maybe it isn’t necessary for director Christopher Abraham to insert Trump-era catch phrases like “fake news,” “alternative facts” and even “covfefe” into the proceedings. We get it already.

Smaller but more honestly earned laughs come from the clever translation, by Ranjit Bolt, which employs some Dr. Seuss-style sing-song.Cast members have fun finishing each other’s lines before the obvious rhyme, and their playfulness is contagious.”
