The American President

I am Andrew Shepherd and I am the President.

Michael Douglas, one of the best American Presidents on-screen. Better than Bill Pullman[Independence Day]. Topped with Martin Sheen and Michael J Fox, it was a cheerful script. Enjoyed the movie after a long time, again.

    If u have access to Bravo on cable, dont miss the West Wing Reruns.. I am hooked these days…Apparam u will agree that Martin Sheen would make a better President than Dubya :))

    Seriously, it worth a watch. Mondays Bravo has a West Wing Marathon in the evening and every night they have back to back one hr episodes. Its at between 11:00 and 1:00 CST, so ongalukku correct a dinner time la irrukum nu nenaikaren. And the episode shown from 12:00 to 1:00 is repeated the next day from 11:00 to 12:00. So even if u miss one day, u can watch the next day.

    This season’s episodes on Wednesday on NBC and is repeated on CNBC i think. Dunno when. And i think the first four seasons are available on DVDs. So can mebbe rent them from Blockbuster or Netflix…

    “He is interested in two things and two things only: making you afraid of it, and telling you who’s to blame for it.”

    Some kick-a$$ dialogs. Love the movie, esp its relevance in todays political climes.

    Mike Douglass is even better in “A Perfect Murder”. Guru, if you get a chance, don’t miss that movie. Another good one starring him is Traffic.

    dramatic buildup romantic drama – the american president. Micheal J Fox is used thoroughly. One of the few sensible films he has acted. I would not say the American President had no flaws, but when it mattered the most(the climax), Rob Reiner delivers.

    For writers, journalists, and novelists watch Alex and Emma (also by the same director). Kate Hudson is terrific in a subtle script and mild emotions.

    If you like Amercian Preisdent you will also like,…

    * Disclosure
    * The Spy Game (Robert Redford)

    or may be even…..

    * Head of State (Chris Rock)

    I have always wondered why a movie which revolves around the Prez or say the CIA always seem better than they actually are…..

    Depiction of power doescaptivate us – does it not?
