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 thought the same thing about the Bush portrayer. I said to Mr. S2R, "This guy's not near charismatic enough to play Bush." Funny, considering how I never thought of Bush as a really charismatic guy before then.
