Fleming overlooks the concept that satire must be grounded in a recognizably realistic portrayal of characters.

Some of the choices for humor are quite bizarre.

The thing Dick resembles most is a wildly uneven Saturday Night Live skit.

It was ok for what it was, but that's not saying much.

A series of cheap and unnecessary crude gags!

Plodding, occasionally sanctimonious, run-of-the-mill comedy.

It's a feeble comic spin, at best!

The execution was neither dark nor clever enough to engage adults nor wacky enough to engage the younger set.

Makes particular aspects of the recent American past comprehensible to those too young to have lived them.

Dunst and Williams are adequately perky and dumb, while the cast members playing the White House crew deliver quirky and entertaining performances.

This modest movie offers a convincing vision of Nixon White House operations as a sordid buffoon show undone by a couple of painfully earnest innocents.

No matter what your age, your politics and your passions, the movie delivers big time!

A sly, extremely potent political satire, aided by a first-rate cast that hungrily dig into their respective roles with a vengeance.

Perhaps better appreciated by the over forty crowd, Dick will make an excellent renter.
