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

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

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

This is one that history will very quickly forget.

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

Some of the choices for humor are quite bizarre.

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

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.

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

Plodding, occasionally sanctimonious, run-of-the-mill comedy.
January 1, 2000
A series of cheap and unnecessary crude gags!

There isn't much to Dick's shtick.

A gimmick film!
