Dick 1999

Dick

Critics Consensus

A clever, funny slice of alternate history, Dick farcically re-imagines the Watergate era and largely succeeds, thanks to quirky, winning performances from Michelle Williams, Kirsten Dunst and Will Ferrell.

Movie Info

Betsy (Kirsten Dunst) and Arlene (Michelle Williams) are two 15-year-old girls in 1976. When Betsy visits Arlene at the Watergate Motel, the two accidentally stumble into the middle of the infamous Watergate robbery. In order to keep them quiet, Nixon (Dan Hedaya) appoints them as honorary dog walkers. As they travel in and out of the White House, their seemingly innocent actions start a chain of events that may eventually lead to Nixon's resignation as president of the United States.

    Dick is an outrageous political satire that's charming and fun. When President Nixon makes two high school girls (who accidentally stumbled across the Watergate break-in) the official White House Dog Walkers, they end up bringing down his administration. Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams are excellent, and have real talent for this style of farcical comedy. Additionally, the script is quite clever in how it's able to keep the comedy light without becoming overly cartoonish. With sass and spunk, Dick is an entertaining and hilarious film.

    A very enjoyable film. I really loved this film, and I thought it was a very well done political oriented comedy that had plenty of laughs, a good cast and aided by good directing. The cast here are great and the plot for the film is very well done and has a good, compelling story that has good laughs. Dick is a smart comedy that is well directed, and is quite charming as well. I really enjoyed the two lead actresses and they really made this film good. The script is very well written, and the story is flawed, but there are plenty of good moments that add so much to the enjoyment of this film. Director Andrew Fleming directs well and keeps the ball rolling and is able to keep you interested from start to finish. This is an entertaining film with a good cast that are really enjoyable to watch on-screen. This is one of those films that is brilliantly done, and despite the flaws, manages to be entertaining and fun. The cast make it work and the film very enjoyable entertainment. This is a must see film that has some good laughs and with powerful performances, great directing, this is what makes Dick a memorable film to watch. This is a smartly crafted film that delivers the laughs. If you want a good comedy, then you should check this film out. With an effective plot and cast, this is a memorable and fun comedy that has some brains. Give this one a shot because you may be surprised at how good it is. Lots of fun from start to finish, Dick is a fine political comedy.

    Saturday Night Live and Kids In The Hall alumni star in this purposely schlocky comedy of errors about the Watergate break-in and the eventual demise of the Nixon White House. More cute than actually funny, but nicely cute.

    I enjoyed this very much and i'm sorta surprised the rest of the audience didn't like "Dick". This picture has got some great laughs and the cast is great. The filmmakers even got the 1970's tacky period down just right. I liked the idea of Nixon (Dan Hedaya) make the ditzy teen girls (Kristen Dunst, Michelle Williams)become official dog-walkers in a way to silence them from knowing Nixon's taping system inside the White House. Funny.
