A gimmick film!

The movie quickly thunders downhill like a massive boulder, effectively trampling things like common sense, taste, and, most importantly, historical significance.

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

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

The script offers no new twists on Nixon; the old standby characterization of the president and his cohorts as bumbling idiots is played out to the fullest.

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

It's a swoony gem of an idea; too bad this Dick is so limp.

The movie has the comic sophistication of a creaky high-school skit.

The film gets off on the wrong foot and never recovers.
