Layering this sweet comedic story with some sharp, editorial barbs, screenwriter Gary Ross has fashioned an engaging, brainy comedy.

It's the spritely comic timing of the fine Hollywood ensemble that keeps Dave percolating. This affable, well-built comedy is Reitman's best since Ghostbusters.
August 2, 2013
A genial, expertly played political comedy proves that the spirit of Mr. Smith still lives.

It's impossible to say whether Dave will play as wonderfully over the decades as it does right now, but this smooth-as-silk comedy could not be more timely, or connect more hopefully with our current national consciousness.

While it's sloppy and draggy in parts, Kevin Kline, in the title role, delivers an ingratiating comedic performance.
August 2, 2013
Kline is so polished and resourceful that he can glide his way through even the creakiest bits and make them seem fresh.
January 16, 2019
It's a high-concept premise that's employed to watchable yet erratic effect by Ivan Reitman...
February 19, 2018
Paying an homage to the prior work of the great Frank Capra, Dave offers a fresh contemporary take on a classic trope.

It's opportunistic, superficial, and great fun.

[A] delightful, gentle satire on the Washington political scene.
