Hawn is a goofy cocktail waitress who saves a foreign man and ends up at the whitehouse in the middle of a plot due to the greed of politicians. To talk about Sarandon would be to give a lot away. SPOILERS This is a rather untypical romantic/political comedy, and it satisfies both somewhat-the political side a whole lot more than the romantic. It touches on political issues, and just barely skims on romantic areas.
I felt that the movie was worth every minute of its nearly two hours. It could have been longer, and I wouldn't have minded a bit. Graham Greene's humor had me laughing out loud more than once, and just looking at both Greene and Val Kilmer gave me butterflies in my stomach.
I must admit that it dismayed me that Jack Ward was playing a Native American, a very important one at that. It was obvious that they had to use LOTS of makeup to get him that dark. Maybe that's why he wore a black felt hat in the middle of summer. But besides the imperfections concerning that particular casting, this movie was great. This sixteen year old applauds Kilmer and Greene.
