The American President 1995

Comedy-drama about a widowed US president and a lobbyist who fall in love. It's all aboveboard, but "politics is perception" and sparks fly anyway...

:hey super Thanks

To get right to it, The American President is an enjoyable but forgetable film. It's well written and executed, but not that inspired. So, despite it's use of some political ideas and attempt at a higher level of drama, it doesn't amount to anything more than a chick-flick. If you don't place your expectations any higher then that, the movie reaches all it's goals and is an enjoyable experience.
Bought American President on DVD the other day. Now there's a candidate I'd vote for. His last speech was amazing, I'd definitely want a president who is a card-carrying member of the ACLU and can defend it so passionately in the face of so much so-called patriotism. I hate the Bob Rumsons of this country.
Comments pending.

Loved it. Very cute, romantic, feel-good, funny and smart. I watch it every time it is on....drives my fiance crazy!

Short review, because this movie shows on cable t.v. so often. Douglas and Bening are both stupendous in this purely entertaining romantic/comedy/drama. I've seen it multiple times and still enjoy watching it. The script is great, and it's execution is equally great. Overall, I recommend it, as long as you don't take the politics too seriously.
:) Michael Douglas is great as the president in this charming romantic comedy !

this is heart filled and warmful
:rotten: Really bad liberal fantasy about how great the world would be if liberials ruled the world. and there's a bad love story to go along with it.:rotten:
