A movie starring Michael Douglas as the President and Annette Bening as the woman he courts
Also features Martin Sheen and Michael J. Fox in roles that foreshadow their later careers in Prime Time.

The movie is generally heartwarming but of course has themeasure of gutwrenching beginning relationship/ political angst required for a romantic political movie such as this one.

Rob Reiner, as director, manages to effectively hit the feelgood points that the movie is capable of: Both the Romantic aspect and the Patriotic aspect, making it, while not quite in the same league, at least reminiscent of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington or other high-period Capra -- pointed out by the actual mention and definition of the adjective Capraesque early on in the movie.
