So Ben Mulroney is one of the few, the proud, the critically-impaired who praised Alexander to the rafters.

How badly has the film been received by the rest of the critical universe? Only 15% of the critics at Rotten Tomatoes gave it an even tepidly good rating.

And this is where it gets interesting. Because that’s very close to 16% — the percentage of the popular vote that Canadians awarded his dad’s Progressive Conservatives in 1993. (Yes, yes, Kim Campbell had replaced him as leader. But it was basically a referendum on the guy.)

Alexander? Ran Greece.
Brian Mulroney? Left you with a greasy feeling.

Alexander? Macedonia.
Brian Mulroney? Mass layoffs.

Alexander? Introduced kissing as a gesture of obsequiousness.
Brian Mulroney? Raised it to an art form.

I tell you — this deserves investigation.
