Re: Greatest Movie President
I never saw this. I thought the trailer made them look a lot like James Garner and Jack Lemmon in My Fellow Americans
. (That's not a good thing.) But if the Presidents hold the movie together it might be worth a shot.[/quote]
Haha, i liked my fellow americans despite its flaws it was funny. have to remember they were playing mid 90's caricatures of repub and dems and those have changed, matt douglas is obv a Bill Clinton derivative and russell cramer is obv a george hw bush derivative.
i thought swing votes was well done and they both drew from several repub and dems...denis hopper seemed to be an amalgamation of jimmy carter, john kerry, and al gore but more likeable and personable then the latter 2. kelsey grammer to me seemed to be a more urbane version of W, untexified, maybe a younger HW? with some Reagan sprinkled in. Both were very likeable and that made the movie work.
Michael Douglas was very good at playing president all though noone that liberal ever would win or be close being reelected. Martin Sheen's bartlet is EXCELLENT, also very centrist which makes it easier to like him on top of his personal attributes. Really wish Alan Alda's character had won, think hed fictionally have been a good president.
West wing-philes will recall Acting President Glenallen walken, hes my favorite TV. As far as movie Harrison Ford's in AF1 is good i think.
