Kramer and Douglas, two former presidents from opposite ends of the political spectrum, become reluctant allies when they become the target of a conspirator in President Haney's administration. The two ex-presidents realize they have an enemy within the government and set out to find evidence that will clear their names. The search takes them across the Southern Appalachians; along the way they meet a homeless couple, thwart kidnapers in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant, and find themselves marching in a gay pride parade.

The scene on the train where James Garner and Jack Lemmon jump to escape the government agents is strikingly similar to Garner's scene in 'The Great Escape' where Garner and 'Donald Pleasance' jump off a moving train to escape pursuing Nazi soldiers. Garner even pushes Lemmon off the train first as he had to do with Pleasance's character who said, "I prefer you just give me good push." See more »
The helicopter used as Marine 1 is not a VH-3 - it is either a Sikorsky S-62 (civilian version) or an ex-USCG HH-52A SeaGuard with the hoist removed, and painted to look like Marine 1 (with a fake exhaust on the right side). When the helo takes off, windshield wipers are clearly visible on the windscreen - when the cockpit is shown from the inside, there are no wipers. Also, there is no rotor brake cylinder mounted on the windscreen center post. Finally, the entire Caution Advisory Panel is lit up and this would be a requirement to land immediately. Furthermore, you cannot have normal conversation in an HH-52A - you use the ICS - the InterCom System, with either helmets or headsets equipped with microphones and press-to-talk switches. And - the President always debarks from the left side of Marine 1 - this shows them leaving from the right side. See more »
It has been described as one of the most vicious presidential races in the history of American politics, and one of the closest. The Republican nominee, Senator Russell P Kramer of Ohio, is practically dead even in the polls with his bitter rival, Democratic Governor Matt Douglas of Indiana. To say there is no love lost between these two candidates is a gross understatement. And yet tonight, in spite of their almost overwhelming distaste for each other, one of these men will have ...

I love this movie. It's one of the best movies I've ever seen. It's awesome to see old farts running for their lives. It's funny how they actually survive. Jack Lemmon and James Garner are great in this movie because you never know what's going to happen next with them and Dan Aykroyd makes the perfect president. John Heard was also great playing the dimwitted Vice-President Matthews. In this movie though I didn't like the character of Col. Tanner. I also didn't like the women truck driver, but I do like the characters that President Kramer and Douglas meets like Charlie Reynolds, Wayne, Genny,Carl Witnaur, Lt. Fleming, and Joe Hollis. This movie is definitely a classic. So I am sure that this fantastic film definitely gets a 10/10.
