The American President- A Review

Updated on August 2, 2014

Should I say that I am not a fan of political movies? Well, The American President sure does prove me wrong! The special touch that pulled me in that other political movies do not have is pure romance.

This is one of those movies that if while browsing TV channels and it happens to be on, I must keep watching. There are only a handful of movies that I can say this about. Michael Douglas is handsome and charming as president of the United States who is also a widow. He takes such a command of his performance that you believe he could actually be the president. Annette Benning plays an extremely hardcore lobbyist who is quite shocked to be asked out on a date by the president and suddenly gets swept away. Just how will the world, the staff and the press accept that the president has a love life? The chemistry between the two will pull at your heartstrings and make you wish that this movie never ends.

The American President has a wonderful cast of actors to make this a top notch film. Martin Sheen and Michael J. Fox give excellent performances as the president's White House staff. Richard Dreyfuss will impress in his role as the president's political opponent. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that the director of this movie, is the talented Rob Reiner. As he prepared for the filming, Reiner spent two days with President Clinton learning his daily routine in order to make the movie as realistic as possible.

I can't say that there is any one thing that makes The American President a great movie, because it has everything going for it. If you are looking for drama, comedy and romance all rolled into one package, this is it. It is one of my favorite films of all time and I hope you will give it a watch.

      I loved this movie too, and totally didn't think I would (because of the politics also). So entertaining and sweet and funny! It is one you can watch over and over. Great review!
