It's great. How the hell did this manage to escape from Hollywood?
By the did you notice all the Fox News flashes in the background.

What station is this on? I've just gone through my Showtime Lineup and can't find it.
Here is what I get from what I saw: 1. They knew something was going to happen.
2. Bush wanted to go back to Washington, but they kept saying no until Bush said so. So much for Bush being a coward.
3. There was a Clinton slam in there.

It was really good. I just wish they hadn't used Bottoms because of his involvement with That's My Bush! I hadn't read about this project so for the longest while I expected them to start getting nasty with the storyline or characterizations. And I swear that I could hear the cynical laughs during those scenes that showed the president praying. Catch this film if you can!

I saw this on its second showing at 11:00 (and it killed me to stay up til 1:00!). It was great. The guy who played Rumsfeld was fantastic. Timothy Bottoms was passable as Bush---and it's funny, usually actors are MORE energetic than the real people, but Bottoms was not as good at Bush as Bush is!
It was a good look at the inner workings of the White House and government---especially on what goes into speechmaking.

I just watched it on my tivo. I thought it was excellent, but I did keep getting distracted by the fact that most of the characters didn't look like the real thing. If that's my only complaint......

Michael Savage interviewed the producer-he is out of the Hollywood closet-states his Conservative position, employs the R word & acknowledges our war on Terror. I should gladly pay for a copy of the film-hope it gets distribution or sales via the web. http://www.paulreveresociety.com/
