"Lewis, we've had presidents who were beloved, who couldn't find a coherent sentence with two hands and a flashlight. People don't drink the sand because they're thirsty. They drink the sand because they don't know the difference."

The American President is a memorable, sweet, charming romantic comedy/drama that is wonderfully appealing and entertaining. Because the film was never a... read more

Back in the 80’s, Rob Reiner was one of the most successful directors at work. I mean, just check his track-record, it is quite impressive (‘This Spinal Tap’, ‘The Sure Thing’, ‘Stand by Me’, ‘The Princess Bride’, ‘When Harry Met Sally...’, ‘Misery’, ‘A Few Good Men’). But then, he made ‘North’. To be honest, I have seen this movie once and I didn’t think it wa... read more

Full Descriptionenvironmental lobbyist and discovers that mixing his personal life with the presidency isn't as simple as he thought--especially during an election year. Andrew Shepherd (Michael Douglas) is a handsome, youthful widower and a dedicated Democrat raising a teenage daughter. He also just happens to be the president of the United States of America, and a very popular one at that. Unfortunately, he's also quite lonely, and the life of a president leaves little time for dat ... (more)

"The President of the United States is a widower & eventually finds himself "out there" in the field. The dating field as well as in the political field. Now the Commander-In-Chief must find a way to mix the two fields together without having the two world's collide. A story of modern romance in the White House that does not involve an intern. Ah, only in the movies, I guess. "

But then, he made ‘North’. To be honest, I have seen this movie once and I didn’t think it was that bad after all. I mean, I thought I would watch the worst movie ever made so that’s probably why. Anyway, it was a massive flop, both financially and critically, and it seems that already 20 years later Rob Reiner has still not recovered from the damage. Anyway, this is the movie he made after the ‘North’ debacle and it was actually pretty good, even if it wasn’t really as good as wh” read more

" Plot: 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. Genre: Comedy | Drama | Romance Director: Rob Reiner Stars: Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen -----} Trailer"

"June 15 @ Amazon Prime (Repeat Viewing) One of my favourite romantic comedies, especially since I'm squarely on the side of the liberals when it comes to political beliefs. Still, an honourable politician in the White House, who are they kidding here?"
