Embarrassing disappointment for this Blair Brown fan
I love Blair Brown, but this movie is embarrassingly bad. It was obviously somebody's idea of good propaganda to promote government health care, but the contrived path to this MESSAGE falls flat on its face. Brown plays a US general who becomes president of the United States. The film-makers figure--probably rightly--that most Americans would vote for a woman or African American with moderate to conservative credentials. Institutional credentials really. Hence, a woman military officer would have a good chance of becoming the first woman president. But her administration veers into the issue of universal, government-financed health care, and that becomes the whole plot. It's lame. It's weak. It's a yawn. The fact that the next presidential administration tried and failed to do exactly what the fictional administration in the movie tries to do should make this movie look like a dated propaganda movie. A disappointment for this B. B. fan.
