A documentary filmmaker turns the camera on himself to examine the modern day relationship using his own past relationships to guide him. As filming progresses his producer starts to question how much is fact and how much is fiction.
This movie has been disavowed by many who worked with and knew President Reagan, even his estranged daughter Patti Davis, arguing that the movie depicts a caricatured Reagan that never existed. Davis took particular exception to the movie's line "Those who live in sin shall die in sin", saying that her father never said such a thing. Furthermore, the release of The Reagan Diaries revealed a much deeper Reagan than what his critics had alleged. See more »
Reagan and studio exec are shown walking through picturesque Universal Studios back lot sets late at night, only to enter a door to European building in which he will pose for publicity photos with a chimp for Bedtime for Bonzo. In reality such photos have been shot in photo gallery or sound stage nowhere near back lot and certainly not late at night.
What the movie showed was a walk through a stage set (not back lot) lit AS IF for night. It was not meant that the still shoot was taking place at night. See more »
Despite all the bad mouthing of this television movie, I was surprised by the quality of the film, the actors, the editing, and production. I think it ranks with many other good docudramas, telling the story of Ron and Nancy Reagan's life together, from mainly the perspective of Nancy and her quirky, ambitious, controlling personality. Was it a fair and balanced portrayal? Well, only those close to the Reagans can tell us, but it seemed fair to me, pointing out the strong and weak points of both characters. James Brolin did a superb job of acting --I thought it was Emmy material. And all the supporting family members and White House staff (etc.) come across fairly well drawn. Al Haig's character comes off right on! I hear criticism that the characters were one-dimensional, but I didn't find that to be the case at all. I thought it was worth an 8 out of 10.
