political satire with a madcap sense of humor, good early effort from the director of 'Commando' and 'Class of 1984'
18 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think 'White House Madness' is a great example of quality independent cinema which combines a madcap sense of humor with political satire. The movie gets a bit preachy towards the end (for example: "I don't know what year you're in but I declare it 1984" followed by Hitler salutes) but throughout, the film is very funny. Basically the Watergate scandal is explained as a mix-up involving Nixon attempting to recover a stuffed, mechanical dog, which contains all of his criminal admissions; this essentially leads to the Watergate Scandal. Many clever moments of Marx Bros. type humor ensues. However if you're not a fan of this of type humor mixed with political satire and a somewhat preachy edge - particularly towards the end, then you might not like this. Also, it's lack of budget is somewhat obvious since this was an independent project. But if you put those prejudices aside, you might enjoy it. It's also a great mid 70s time capsule.
