2016: Obama's America takes audiences on a gripping visual journey into the heart of the worlds most powerful office to reveal the struggle of whether one man's past will redefine America over the next four years. The film examines the question, "If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?" Across the globe and in America, people in 2008 hungered for a leader who would unite and lift us from economic turmoil and war. True to Americas ideals, they invested their hope in a new kind of president, Barack Obama. What they didn't know is that Obama is a man with a past, and in powerful ways that past defines him--who he is, how he thinks, and where he intends to take America and the world. Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, best selling author Dinesh DSouza races against time to find answers to Obama's past and reveal where America will be in 2016.

Obama has surpassed many obstacles in his life. He is a grounded, genuine, compassion leader who is driven to make this world a better place for all people. I feel this movie was poor...exaggerated and puposely tainted by the writers who are assuming what shaped Obama. Movies like this are a waste of time.
For what it is worth, I have a bachelor’s in management, a bachelors in education, majoring in social science, and a masters in education. I saw this film to objectively get more information on my president. I was vigilantly alert for bias. Although everyone is a product of their past and present, I believe the producers presented Obama very factually. I was fascinated as I watched the facts liberated. I was captivated watching the first and only real biography done on Obama. Do not watch this movie if you are not interested in your president’s motives and you are not interested in America’s future. However, if you are even a little interested in one of those subjects, it is a must see. You will also not like it if you are reality challenged or have a cognitive dissonance disability. If you have difficulty accepting reality, ignore your environment, and prefer fiction; you may want a DC comic superhero movie instead, because this DC personality is neither superhero nor comical fiction.
The must see movie had the movie audience completely dumbfounded. The audience walked into the lobby and looked as if they were just notified of a death in the family,an eerie silence fell over the crown.I looked at my two sons and felt very emotional,as if the future of county would change drastically.The country that my Father and Grandfather fought in wars for,may be lost forever.I prayed that this is not possible,but I fear this may come true.
We went to see "obama 2016".
We went to see "obama 2016". You would not have believed how many people showed up to see this documentary. Every seat in the theater was filled, even though there had been an earlier showing that day, and more showings were scheduled for the rest of the afternoon and evening. We had to sit way down front - (I don't like sitting that close to the screen. It gives me a sore neck, and eye strain).
The audience was riveted. You could barely hear a sound from them, or detect a movement, and certainly not smell Popcorn. Yet the movie had no bombast, no violence, no sex and no spectacular visual effects.
Everyone was so quiet. I don't think they were even breathing. No one wanted to miss a word. It was refreshing to see how addressing adults as adults could be effective, in an age when so many parts of the Media address the public as if they were children who need a constant whirlwind of sounds and Movements to keep them interested. After the show everyone clapped. I haven't seen that many people in a movie theater since I was a teenager; or hear the audience start clapping at the end. The movie didn't try to put obama down; it just told how obama came to his Third World perspective of America and the facts about his life. How he came to be the person he is today. I hope you go to see it before they stop running it. ... Jack London
