In the 1960s, a group of friends at an all girls school learn that their school is going to be combined with a nearby all boys school. They concoct a plan to save their school while dealing with everyday problems along the way.
Comedy about two high school girls who wander off during a class trip to the White House and meet President Richard Nixon. They become the official dog walkers for Nixon's dog Checkers, and become his secret advisors during the Watergate scandal. Written by
When Helen and Roderick tell Arlene how they met they talk about how they literally crashed into each other and how they said to each other "your peanut butter is in my chocolate and your chocolate is in my peanut butter". This is a reference to the 1970's commercials for Reese Peanut Butter Cups which told us how they were invented. See more »
When Nixon is making his walk to the helicopter (after he has resigned) some of the Marine honor guard are holding M16A2 rifles (you can tell by the round hand grips); they were not used by the military until the early 80's. See more »
I loved Dick! It was one of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time. Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams were perfect as two ditzy girls who accidentally get involved in the Watergate scandal. What I really liked about this movie was that it took actual mysteries from the scandal (the 18 1/2 minutes of blank tape, Deep Throat) and gave it a false but hysterical explanation. For those of you who don't like this movie because it gives false information, lighten up!!! Dick is not supposed to be taken seriously! Dick was very entertaining, and hysterically funny. At many parts I laughed so hard I cried. Arlene and Betsy's final action at the end of the movie was the best. I don't remember the last time I laughed so hard.
