About the Movie
History comes alive in this supremely entertaining film that garnered eight Oscar nominations including Best Picture. Oscar-winners Robert Redford ("Up Close and Personal," "Indecent Proposal") and Dustin Hoffman ("Outbreak," "Rain Man") play Woodward and Bernstein, the intrepid newspaper reporters who broke open the Watergate scandal and toppled a President. The screenplay by William Goldman ("Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "Indecent Proposal") won an Oscar, as did Jason Robards ("Philadelphia," "Parenthood") as Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee. Featuring an all-star supporting cast, including Hal Holbrook ("Evening Shade"), Jane Alexander ("Kramer vs. Kramer"), Meredith Baxter ("Family Ties"), Ned Beatty ("Roseanne"), Martin Balsam ("Psycho"), Jack Warden ("Heaven Can Wait"), Polly Holliday ("Alice"), Stephen Collins ("Sisters"), Robert Walden ("Lou Grant") and many others.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A spellbinding detective story.
Fresh: The movie is a victory lap for American journalism -- the triumphant flip side to Network's self-loathing take on the media.
Fresh: Hal Holbrook is outstanding; this actor, herein in near-total shadow, is as compelling as he is in virtually every role played.
Fresh: "All the President's Men" is a quintessential American movie: It does a lot of things well and makes it all look simple. It works on several levels.
One of the best movies of all time. Reminds us all of how critical the free press is within a democracy, and the dangers of allowing the quality of our newspapers and investigative journalism to be washed away by superficial global news services.
Very entertaining political thriller. Strong leads, thrilling setting, engaging story. Better than this year's "State of Play."
