OK Movie 6.5
This movie is a good date flick, by a guys standard. Girls will probably enjoy it as well.
Travis Fimmel is ok as the leading man but it appeared to me that he is still learning his craft. He is more than capably supported by a great group of actors to help him carry this movie. William Fichtner, Forest Whitaker, John Finn and Molly McQueen are engaging and fun to watch. Louis Lombardi steals every scene he utters dialogue in and Rhys Coiro eerily channels Hal Linden.
If this movie didn't have the Nixon/True story angle I don't think it would be as captivating.
