Every line referring to the "FBR" or "CEA" is dubbed, often quite obviously. The actors were actually saying "FBI" and "CIA," but at the behest of the actual agencies the names were changed in post-production. See more »

"The President's Analyst" is a satirical counter-culture classic that takes aim at everything and everyone, including the counter culture itself.

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!"
