A look alike is recruited to help hide a health emergency for the sitting president. What could go wrong? Entertaining and worth a watch.
Great balance of humor and politics. Smart script. Very likable protagonists. I can watch Dave once a month!
Shouldn’t have been as good as it was. Premise was silly but Kevin Klein was so likable that it was easy to get past.
When you veto someone's funding, that is not a mistake
Winning & Well-intentioned comedy. 9/10
I adore this film. An average Joe does right for the country and those around him. An aspirational comedy mixing humor, heart and brains.
It’s a cute old comedy. Worth a watch makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.
High concept. Poor fulfillment. Never clear what's main point of story. Kevin Klein seems uncomfortable.
A cute if not improbable little film. Definitely worth watching once- the actors absolutely kill it.
Kevin Kline is a fantastic actor but this movie runs a little slow. Nothing wrong with it, I just would have a hard time recommending it.
