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.

Released four years after The Distinguished Gentleman, another political comedy film which also includes James Garner. While here he was a former president with a philandering nature, on the 1992 film, he was a longtime congressman who died while having sex with his assistant and thus paved the way for Eddie Murphy's character to be elected and assume his post.

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.
