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 (Teri Garr) and Roderick (Ted McGinley) tell Arlene (Michelle Williams) how they met, they talk about how they literally crashed into each other and how they said to each other "your peanut butter is on my chocolate, and your chocolate is in my peanut butter". This was a reference to the 1970's commercials for Reese's 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 »

The DVD features a deleted dream sequence which apperantly happens right after Arlene burns all of her Nixon memorabilia. It basically is an extension of the first dream, with here discovering a tape recorder in Dick's back, and then dreams that he is some sort of evil being. See more »
I give to this movie 10/10. When I watched this movie on the movie theater I got a little bit ashamed because nobody laughs... I think because the plot is too much America, and the Brazilian people didn't get in the mood of the movie. The two girls were great in the screen in this movie. And also the soundtrack is amazing, with the best from 70s. I got this on DVD and always that I can I watch it again.
