"Two enthusiastic thumbs up! Very smart, very funny." - Siskel and Ebert

Boy meets girl - and the press tracks their every move, rivals fire broadsides and a Presidency with 630opularity rating plunges to 41 0n seven weeks. When you're the President everyone knows where you live. Michael Douglas portrays the widower Chief Executive who falls for a lobbyist (Annette Bening), then freefalls in the polls in this winning romantic comedy directed by Rob Reiner. Bustling staff members (Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox, David Paymer, Anna Devere Smith), a sneering opponent (Richard Dreyfuss), state dinners, formal protocol, informal moments, global crises - all come into focus as Reiner and his stars explore the balance between private romance and public Presidency.
