Trivia

A not-so secret fact is that the FBR and CEA were originally identified by their real names; apparently pressure was brought to rename them after the film was shot. Thus every line where FBR or CEA is spoken has been redubbed, often very audibly. If you watch actor's lips, they're really saying FBI and CIA. See more »

Quotes

Wynn Quantrill: We've both done weekend picketing.
[quietly]
Wynn Quantrill: As a matter of fact, we sponsored the Negro doctor and his wife when they moved into the development.
Dr. Sidney Schaefer: Well, the President will be very pleased to hear that.
Wynn Quantrill: That's great. If I do say so, it took a little courage. The Bullocks next door? Real right-wingers. American flag up every day. Real fascists. Ought to be gassed. You know the type.

"Very good, indeed!"
4 November 2002 | by (Haddonfield, NJ) – See all my reviews

"The President's Analyst" is a satirical counter-culture classic that takes aim at everything and everyone, including the counter culture itself. It's also endlessly quotable and is probably the only movie where you'll hear a line like "Don't say Chinks. Say Chinese restaurant. Chinks is bigoted." Absolutely golden.

My father used to work for The Phone Company and he absolutely loved this movie, as did I from the first time I saw it. I taped it off AMC years ago before they turned evil (back when there were no commercial breaks and they still showed plenty of films letterboxed), and I wouldn't part with my tape for anything in the world -- expect maybe a special edition DVD with all of the original footage and music restored.

To anyone who says this film is boring or unfunny, I say, "Poppycock!"
