The American President 
What?? A chick flick in my Top 100???
4/4 stars

This movie isn't ranked high on many viewer's list, but Rob Reiner and Aaron Sorkin's last collaboration, "A Few Good Men" was a tremendous success with me. I thought that the simple conflict was exploited in a very enthralling and entertaining fashion. Based on this work, I was very excited to see "The American President", especially since it starred one of my favorite actors, Michael Douglas. I was just as impressed with this film. The story had that intelligent humour and interesting story that worked so well for "A Few Good Men". Douglas and Bening had a great chemistry which blended well with their strong performances. I found myself laughing and crying at the same time. I empathised with the tragedy in President Sheppard's situation and I was moved by his handling of it. There are fine performances by the supporting class, especially by Michael J. Fox in a role he was born to play (it's Alex Keaton meets Marty McFly) and Richard Dreyfus as President Sheppard's competition for the next term. And the " I am President of the United States" speech is one of the top speeches in any movie along with " You can't handle the truth" speech by Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men and " Out of order? I'll show you out of order" speech by Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman. This movie is thoroughly entertaining and moving. It will play with all your emotions, from the opening scene with its fantastic musical score to the film's final shot.
