Man of the Year

Man of the Year ★ 2006 (PG-13)

Schizoid blend of comedy and political thriller that features a subdued Williams as Tom Dobbs, a late-night talk show host whose joke about running for president turns into the real thing. But when he wins, it's thanks to a voting machine glitch that computer nerd Eleanor (Linney) warned her company about. When Eleanor tries to turn whistleblower, things really turn ridiculous, with the lady on the run from corporate hit men. Levinson should have stuck with a political satire about a well-intentioned guy taking on the biggest job in the land, which he is totally unequipped to handle. 108m/C DVD . US Robin Williams, Laura Linney, Christopher Walken, Lewis Black, Jeff Goldblum, Rick Roberts; D: Barry Levinson; W: Barry Levinson; C: Dick Pope; M: Graeme Revell.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
