John Candy's remake of "The Manchurian Candidate.",
This review is from: Volunteers [DVD] (DVD)
Lawrence Bourne III (Tom Hanks) is escaping a domestic debt. In the process he takes someone else's place in the Peace Corps. Finding the people around him a little too obsessed with their mission; He attempts of add a little civilization to it.
This movie shows glimpses into the way governments are run and the people that make it happen. How the Peace Corps makes a difference in the lives of the natives and the people in the Corps. Bridging the gap among factions (why build a bridge and its eventual use). Some are manipulators and some are sincere. The best are gung-ho (John Candy).
Worth seeing. It gets better with each viewing.
