Romantische komedie van Rob Reiner over een (wel erg ideale) Amerikaanse president die weduwnaar is en die verliefd wordt op een goed betaalde lobbyiste voor de milieubeweging. De politieke gevolgen van die verliefdheid vormen het hoofdthema van deze amusante film waarin door de hoofdrolspelers Michael Douglas en Annette Bening uitstekend geacteerd wordt evenals door o.a. Martin Sheen en Michael J. Fox. De scherpe dialogen van Aaron Sorkin dragen beslist bij tot het succes van deze plezierige komedie. De dvd bevat diverse extra's.
