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.
Very good movie about reporters.
An overall great movie with great actors. At one point I even felt like Woodward did…….afraid and paranoid after knowing the truth. If you like suspense and true reporting you’ll love this movie. What’s even scarier is that it’s all true! Buy it or rent it!!!!
This movie is so well put together, Redford and Hoffman are great and it really should be a movie everyone watches to understand what happened during this era. Director Alan J. Pakula's best movie I think. Superb!
A rare piece of art that exceeds most others in every way—not to mention an astounding insight into American politics.
