Quotes

[Templeton and the President disagree on anti-crime measures]
Reporter: Least she's doing something. You're just talking.
Nathan Templeton: You don't get it, do you? She's doing something to cause a lot of talk; I'm talking something to cause a lot to get done.

A Great Show!
2 October 2005 | by caroldenise2002See all my reviews

Commander in Chief: This was a great show! Geena Davis has a foreboding image on screen. She is confident, yet humble; she is healthy, yet not too thin and she looks like she is in control and is superb as the President of the United States.

Meanwhile, there is pressure from the old school boys, and there are games being played with teleprompter and there are loyalties to the dead president that have to be dealt with.

In corporate America, one would quickly be prompted to consult with the Human Resources department about Donald Sutherland and is cronies. But Geena is the President and she automatically understands the disenchantment of the old school boys and she handles it.

Additionally, the husband consequently, assumes a woman's role, and however reluctantly he becomes first man, he bites the bullet. At least he does five minutes before one of the most important speeches on television ensues.

Should Geena pull this off continually, Television just might have created a show for the nation that is truly worth really watching.
