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.

All I can say is Bravo to Showtime for airing this picture. There seems very little doubt now (and not because of this movie) that what was depicted in this made for TV film is accurate. Ronald Reagan was a spaced out old man residing in his own private La-La Land who had a great PR campaign to buffalo the American people into believing that he was running the country. The GOP and conservatives objected to this film. Well boo-hoo! It was made and shown. Isn't that what America is all about? Or is it about what conservatives only want?
