Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The American President (1995)

Directed by Rob Reiner

Starring Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox


Chock-full of one liners (and a bit of physical humor), none of which is very funny or does anything to further the story. Of course, everybody in the theater, especially the idiot next to me, loved it. Overall, a decent but slow-moving story. Cool introduction sequence.

The movie had an unrealistic presentation of the president. The president wouldn’t act surprised with how he is treated by everyone around him if he has already been in office for 3 years, as in the movie.
