"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

This one of the best performances by Annette Bening! What a great part to act! Siskel and Ebert stated that Ms. Bening glows. I do not understand how someone can glow in a movie but she does. She is absolutely beautiful in this classic! Then you have veteran Michael Douglas (Wall Street) playing the President. He is very believable. Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now) plays the President's Chief... 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

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

"The President of the United States is a widower & eventually finds himself out in the field. The dating field as well as 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."
