Southside With You is a decent enough romantic movie but there's a problem. It's clearly meant to be a schmaltzy self-congratulatory love letter to Obama fans everywhere. I bet it was made with a different successor in mind. *wink wink*. The script is lightweight but genial and the two actors playing the Obamas are really good. It's barely eighty minutes long and it's got more on its mind than just sending Obama a nice send-off. But then again it's exactly that.

Pleasant Date Movie

'Southside with You' is pretty much summed up by it's plot synopsis. We see current U.S. president Obama and his wife, Michelle, have their first date. It all plays out in the span of a day, complete with long walks and talks that share insight into the two people. Many would draw a comparison to Linklater's immaculate 'Before Sunrise', and they'd be right to do so. This is like a lighter version of that film. Less heavy on the "touchy feely" romance and more focused on humanizing these figures whom we only know from their famous positions. In that regard, the film does an excellent job. The writing, directing, and terrific performances paint a believable representation of the two iconic figures. They bond over trivial matters, point out each other's flaws, but also embrace them. ...
