Did You Know?

Trivia

Co-Writer and Director Andrew Fleming wanted the feel of a 1970s movie, and tried to frame scenes as he thought they might have been framed in a comedy from that era. He also used analogue tape editing tools, rather than digital, to maintain this feel. See more »

Goofs

When the girls first meet President Nixon there is a conversation about the Vietnam War. They say to blame Johnson and someone says that he is dead and someone else says thank God. Johnson died in January 1973 and the scene was supposed to be right after the break in which was June 1972. See more »

Quotes

Henry Kissinger: It's alright, gentlemen. I'm familiar with these two young ladies. Well, not "familiar", familiar, obviously.

One of the funniest movies I've ever seen
14 January 2000 | by tsamarySee all my reviews

I feel for those who had the unenviable job of marketing this movie. Who do you aim it at? Teens, most of whom know nothing about Nixon and Watergate, or adults, who will dismiss it as being another obnoxious, dumb teen comedy? Hence the box office failure. But what true hidden gem this film is! The writers have managed to put elements into this film that will be able to please the entire spectrum of viewers and knowledge of the Watergate scandal is not at all required to enjoy this hilarious film, but if you happen to have a grasp on it's history, your enjoyment will increase tenfold. The performances of everyone involved are top-notch with special notice going to Dan Hedaya (Nixon dead-on)and Michelle Williams (watch her shy expressions and mannerisms as she develops her crush on Nixon. Priceless!). Many, many scenes left me laughing hysterically (the beach dream scene, Haldeman's interrogation of the girls, Hello Dolly meets Breshnev, Bernstein hovering over Woodward at the Post). Add great music, costumes, sets and a fitting ending, and you've got a great movie experience. Don't miss it!!! (And for a treat watch this as a double bill with ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN!)
