In this comedy, Russell P. Kramer (Jack Lemmon) and Matt Douglas (James Garner) are two former U.S. Presidents who sit on opposite sides of the political fence. Kramer is a stuffy Republican reluctant to part with a dollar, while Douglas is a left-leaning Democrat with an eye for the ladies. Douglas succeeded Kramer in office after a single term, while Douglas, after four years as chief executive, lost to his former running mate William Haney (Dan Aykroyd). When the facts about a bribery scheme in Haney's administration threaten to surface and destroy his reputation, the ruthless president tries to pin the responsibility on Kramer and Douglas — and when the ex-presidents learn the truth about Haney's dealings, Haney tries to have them killed before they can talk. Kramer and Douglas soon find themselves on the run, disguising themselves as celebrity impersonators, hiding out in the woods with a homeless family, and marching in a Gay Pride parade in an effort to stay clear of Haney's goons while they bring the truth to the people. My Fellow Americans also features Lauren Bacall as Kramer's long-suffering wife and John Heard as Haney's intellectually-challenged vice president.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Lemmon and Mr. Garner are such pros that they carry the movie smoothly over its dull patches.
Rotten: Enthusiastic as one might be that Jack Lemmon has found a new lease on movie life with his Grumpy Old Men series, the funny-crankpots genre wears mighty thin on this road trip.
Fresh: Puts a very bright capper on this dismal political year.
Rotten: A gang-written comedy that doesn't have a political bone in its body, or much evidence of a funny one, either.
Finally this movie is available for download!!!
I loved this movie! The comedy is excellent, though what I think makes this movie extra special is that it makes fun of both Democrats and Republicans instead of just the Republicans. The best scene? I don't know... the whole movie is full of memorable scenes!!!
