There seems to be talk that Ben Affleck`s movie about hostages in Iran in 1979-80, Argo, will win the Best Picture Oscar (even though Ben didn`t get a Best Director nod). 

I thought Argo was fine as a satisfactory example of the Married Couple`s Date Movie, which has become rare. But as Best Picture? 

Noah Millman supplies the definitive Argo takedown.
