Andrew Shepherd is approaching the end of his first term as President of the United States. He's a widower with a young daughter and has proved to be popular with the public. His election seems assured. That is until he meets Sydney Ellen Wade, a paid political activist working for an environmental lobby group. He's immediately smitten with her and after several amusing attempts, they finally manage to go on a date (which happens to be a State dinner for the visiting President of France). His relationship with Wade opens the door for his prime political opponent, Senator Bob Rumson, to launch an attack on the President's character, something he could not do in the previous election as Shepherd's wife had only recently died.

Camp David is strictly off-limits to the public and the media. The production designer used someone's personal snapshots from the Richard Nixon Era and a lot of imagination when designing the set. See more »
While discussing their nervousness about their budding relationship, the President tells Sydney that all the other first ladies were married to their husbands before they came to the White House. However Grover Cleveland was a bachelor when he became President in March 1885. He married Frances Folsom in a White House ceremony in June 1886. See more »
This film worked for the same reason the West Wing works... it humanizes the President. Yes, the most powerful man in the world has feelings and falls in love. I liked one reviewer's comment saying that this film is Capra-esque. It certainly is because of its overall feel-good aspect and optimism. I enjoyed this film, and Michael Douglas seldom disappoints me. 8/10.
