Movie Reviews

The funniest history lesson ever- I s**t you not !!
T. Russell | Dallas, Texas | 09/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This History lesson by Mr. Wuhl is not only the funniest commentary on video I have ever seen, it is eyeopening in it's review of historical events we take for granted. Mr. Wuhl is well schooled in literature, history, and film, and he uses this expertise to illuminate American and world history in a most entertaining manner. As noted previously, Nr. Wuhl peppers his lesson with the occasional f-bomb, so it is definitely not elememtary school rated. His audience in the video is college students, and they are totally enthralled. Mr. Wuhl has a sequel "Assume the Position 201" that is equally well done. We can only hope he continues his career as a History professor. What a great semester class that would be.
HBO Does It Again
Kiki | Denver, CO | 08/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In this HBO series, Robert Wuhl brings American history to life and corrects many popular misconceptions. I learned a great deal through this brilliantly funny presentation of American History. If Mr. Wuhl were to teach a history course at my college, I am quite sure it would be wait listed well into the next decade.

On a side note, Mr. Wuhl does make use of the occasional expletive; so, this program may not be appropriate for all audiences."
Lunceford on Wuhl

"I showed 'Assume the Position' to my high school World History class, as well as my AdultSchool U.S. History class. The language is a bit dicey for the high schoolers, but it is nothing that I don't hear walking across the campus daily.
The content is hilarious and beneficial because it shows that history is dynamic and has an element of perspective. The idiom "History was written by the winners!" has a new meaning!
I thoroughly enjoyed the video but it could be offensive to some high school sophomores. I would suggest editing the language for younger audiences and not using so many F's!

"If only history class had been this fun I might have learned more. High school students today should see this, maybe they would find history a little more interesting. I hope Mr. Wuhl finds a way to do a third one, and still keep the high standards of the first two."
