'Vice' casts Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in irreverent satire

Whatever the line between prestige HBO film and theatrical movie, "Vice" -- an irreverent look at former Vice President Dick Cheney -- doesn't entirely bridge it. Buoyed by strong performances -- including an unrecognizable Christian Bale and Amy Adams as Cheney and his wife Lynne -- the movie ultimately seems too pleased with itself, bringing only marginal insight to its admittedly secretive antihero.
