The American President
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3.5 Stars
The American President Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:On TV Saw at/with:
Rating: PG-13 Year: 1995 Category: Romance
Director: Rob Reiner Time: 114 min. Writer: Aaron Sorkin

Mine: Sure it is a schmatlzy romance, that is quite predictable, but I like it a great deal. Annette Bening is gorgous. I even liked Michael Douglas, which is unusual for me. The support cast is terrific. Love the unappologetic liberal bias the whole movie.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Slick, entertaining Hollywood concoction about a widowed president who's attracted to a lobbyist and decides to pursue her--naively ignoring the political impact this liaison may have during an election year. Appealing performances and a bright screenplay (by Aaron Sorkin) help this likable movie glide along past its considerable gaps in credibility. This is the ultimate wish-fulfillment movie, with a president who's handsome, funny, forthright, decisive, and honest. If only! Panavision.

I like this film really very much. Although it is romance, it has its own humour and when I am depressed, I like watching it.
