"...Suggestion: Utterly unsolvable or not, you'll want to check this shit out, citizen. If history, as James Joyce's Stephen Dedalus put it in Ulysses, is a nightmare from which we're trying to awake … and if laughter really is the best medicine … then this multivalent parody, with its many terrific Paul Stranger illustrations, is just the sort of cartoonish literary methamphetamine to roust you from whatever unpleasant dreams might accompany the upcoming 50th anniversary of our beloved Jack Kennedy's death...."

"...(Only the famously reticent Neil Armstrong is absent.) It's easy these days to forget that the entire Apollo space program, begun mere months after John F. Kennedy's inauguration, was born of not only fearless test pilots who displayed Tom Wolfe's innate sense of "the right stuff" but also of horn-rimmed eggheads and whiz kids toiling down in Houston, inventing whole the mechanical devices and contraptions needed to let human beings slip the bonds of earthly gravity..."
"...I once read a review that said Cliff Robertson played the young John F. Kennedy in PT 109 as though he knew he'd be elected president one day; Downey plays Chaplin as though he just can't get over the impending tragedy of his decline, even from the beginning, over four decades away – a tone which seriously screws up the biography of a comic genius..."
