Did You Know?


In the novel and the earlier version of the film, Seven Days in May (1964), the character played here by Forest Whitaker was named Martin "Jiggs" Casey. The nickname, which in the context of an African-American actor was a racial epithet, was clearly inappropriate and was not used. See more »


The entire premise of the Presidential takeover in the film implies that the moment the Cabinet members and the Vice President declare the president unfit for duty, he will be removed from office. However, Section 4 of the 25th Amendment outlines a detailed procedure for the manner in which a President may appeal a declaration that he is incompetent. The procedures specifies that the Vice President and the Cabinet may then re-state their case, in which afterwards the matter is forwarded to Congress. The stipulations of the 25th Amendment are in place to prevent exactly the type of scenario which is shown in the film. See more »

Excellent movie and entertaining
26 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was an excellent made for TV movie. It was meant to make you think about what is and was possible. In 1994 the country still wanted to believe such an act of betrayal in this country was impossible...in 2001 we learned different. Yes, it is a make-over of Seven Days in May, which was astounding for its time, but the Enemy Within is an updated version without just being the same movie with updated clothing and actors. Forest Whitaker makes you believe he is who he is portraying. I liked that Whitaker's character was married and was trying to be a responsible parent. Kirk Douglas' character, if I remember right, didn't have personal life shown in the movie. This is definitely worth the time.
