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

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you I Tunes~!

I have been waiting for this movie since I first joined I Tunes. If you are a hopeless romantic and love a great chick flick then this is the movie for you~~~
Michael Douglas & Annette Bening have wonderful chemistry in this movie and Michael J. Fox and Martin Sheen are WONDERFUL as well. For me this movie is a true pleasure to watch and I NEVER get tired of it, no matter how many times I have watched it.
This movie gives a whole new meaning (lol) to giving a woman flowers. Absolutely LOVE IT!!!!
Enjoy this pleasant and endearing love story! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!!

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.


I want to own. Like so many movies, why iTunes can't I just own
