Feel-Good at its best.By Nonchalant John from Oxford, England , 05 Apr 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I've watched this movie many times now but still cannot understand the politics that are going on. But that said this is a great feel-good movie, I suspect Michael Douglas plays the role of a President that americans would only get in their dreams. Honorable, truthful etc.
There is a great supporting cast lead by Michael J Fox and Martin Sheen.
Well worth watching.

Old Fashioned RomanceBy blueperky (1 review) , 04 Mar 2013In responce to Avalanche this film was made 4 years before West Wing so it cant be trying to be like it, maybe West Wing is based on it and thats how Martin sheen got the job on WW. Anyway never mind the thin politics plot, thats not what its about. Yes it is a bit cheesy and cliched but who cares, its an old fashioned romance and a film to enjoy. A good looking cast with chemistry between them. My fav bit is the dance scene where a great instrumental arrangement of 'I have dreamed' from The King and I is playing.
A Truelly Romantic EncounterBy a customer , 22 Jul 2012Loved the film from start to finish. For once we are treated to a love story between two people who are fully grown up and who's personalities are already well set in place.
Its like a grown up Cinderella set in a political world of today rather than in a fairytale.
Great for a rainy night in with the girls.
A good all rounder - suitable for mixed viewingBy GillyD (5 reviews) from Lymm , 10 May 2012This is a favourite we keep coming back to. Likeable characters, believable story, some terrific lines, good pace, good humour ..... everything is good about this film - I recommend you try it.
A top drawer film.By Bobsview (549 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 17 Apr 2012Classic political romance. Excellent in parts, and great cast, plot and script. Anette Bening and Michael Douglas are absolutely brilliant in this . I love this film and have watched it many times. Thoroughly recommend it.
predictable cliched schmaltzBy Avalanche (2 reviews) from London , 15 Feb 2011This was predictable cliched fare, a good cast trying too hard to be like the west wing with annoying characters and utterly cloying. A few amusing moments don't raise the bar here. Don't bother.
