((THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT/COLUMBIA PICTURES: I AM MONUMENTALLY SORRY FOR HAVING INSULTED YOU. ARE YOU UNDER THE IMPRESSION I AM MAD AT YOU? WELL, SYDNEY, SELDOM DOES A DAY GO BY THAT I'M NOT BURNED IN EFFIGY.))
Annette Benning's character is a political strategist for an environmental group. She is wonderfully natural and completely believable.
Michael Douglas is the widowed President who epitomizes the saying "it's lonely at the top"...till Sydney Wade comes along.
President Douglas is smitten with Sydney and the feeling is mutual; their attraction to each other is obvious on the screen.
As for the President's staff, Terrific!
From terrier like Michael J. Fox to a sleazy senator played by Richard Dreyfuss. ((PRESIDENTS GOT A GIRLFRIEND.))
"The American President" has charm, intelligent and sometimes very funny dialogue and insight into the deal making that drives American politics.
But how hard is it to date when you're the President of the U.S. and leader of the free world? ((THIS IS THE PRESIDENT...OF THE UNITED STATES.))
As long as the movie concentrates on the romance and especially Sydney's discomfort with the limelight, it works.
But its political agenda and extremely unlikely--in this political climate--ending, ring false and get this romantic movie a "B+".))
