Congressional Approval Numbers Still Ahead of That Adam Sandler Flick

Americans are less satisfied with Congress now than at any other time in the history of the Gallup poll. This includes July of 2008, when Americans were being ravaged by an economic meltdown, record-high gas prices, and the movie The Love Guru.

Here's a little perspective on the latest Congressional approval rating, thanks to the movie review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. As you can see in the listing below, the 111th Congress is ranked slightly ahead of both Cats & Dogs and Saw 3D, while enjoying a comfortable cushion over the Adam Sandler buddy movie, Grown Ups.

That's good news for America.

62% Jackass 3-D

50% The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

41% The Expendables

38% Burlesque

25% Resident Evil: Afterlife

20% The Tourist

14% Alpha and Omega

13% Congressional Approval!

12% Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

11% Saw 3D

10% Grown Ups

With a little more effort moving forward, it's possible Congress could even surpass Alpha and Omega, a film described by the Arizona Republic critic as "An animated flick that doesn't leave much of an impression. It's even difficult to recall what happened once it's over."

Something for the 112th Congress to shoot for next year.
