Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: With great looks, a dandy supporting cast, a zinger-filled screenplay by Aaron Sorkin and Mr. Douglas twinkling merrily in the Oval Office, The American President is sunny enough to make the real Presidency pale by comparison. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: The image of a chief executive as moonstruck single guy taps something buoyant and touching in our collective democratic imagination. And Douglas, wearing a fast-break smile in place of his usual frown, strikes a tender rapport with Bening... – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 14, 2010

Fresh: As bustling and impassioned as the best Sturges and Capra movies. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A super cast injects it with Teddy Roosevelt vitality. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Class with a capital C.

Being born an incurable romantic, this movie is one that I can watch over and over and over again and again. It rates as one of my 10 favorite of all time.

Great film - Glad to see it BACK on iTunes, but be careful ...

Great film - Glad to see it BACK on iTunes, but be careful ... I bought it about 2 years ago and then they tok the sound away - after about a month or two - from me after paying 9.99 for the movie - then they removed it from their list and now it's back ... they will not credit me or give me the movie again ... so, just be careful - you too could lose this wonderful film due to an iTunes take back!

The American President

One of my favorite 'feel good' movies. Excellent download quality. No issues.

On another note; in the 50 or so movies that I've downloaded, I've had my share of download problems. In virtually every case iTunes has either refunded the entire cost or offered another download. 100% safisfactory and excellent customer service.
