There are limits at how historically inaccurate a movie should be and if you should hate it for that.

There are films that show a very  adaptation of what they're based on a true story, like "Pochahontas" and "300", and that's fine.

Then there are films that are proprely called "Movies about fictional history" which are about fictional characters who interact with history exploiting it just in favor of their own story like "Watchmen", "Captain America: the first Avenger", "Hellboy", "Asterix & Obelix" and "Top Secret".
They're NOT about respecting history, all they want to do is just having their fiction featuring it for entertainment porpuses, and that's fine.

Then there are ACTUAL movies based on real life, the biopics and historical movies. The best being "Amadeus", "The Elephant Man", "Milk", "Downfall", "Apollo 13", "Joyeux NoŽl", "Ed Wood" and my all time favorite: "American Splendor". These are great movies that do a great job in depicting the people and the historical moments they rapresent and they have a flawless balance in being informative AND being great films.
"Cinderella Man" and "A Beautiful Mind" take MANY liberties on what they're based on, BUT AT VERY LEAST they're good movies on their own.

...Then we get to BULLSHIT like "Alexander", "Pearl Harbor" and THIS ABOMINATION which take the duty of actual biopics and historical movies but miserably fail both at respecting the people and the events they're based on AND even at being good movies on their own merits.
They're offensive for being historically inaccurate because they took the responsability of showing realt facts seriously.
*There are films that show a very artsy depiction of what they're based on, like "Pocahontas" and "300", and that's fine.

I just hope that the Critic means it when he said Dr. Bitchspasms isn't a recurring character...
If you're looking for a good, heartfelt Robin Williams movie.... Stick with Good Will Hunting.
Who else here was half expecting that never existing girlfriend was going to come back to life in the end without an explanation?
At least the scientists at emotional movies inc. knew enough to realize that was a bad idea. That would have made this bad movie even worse.
