Movie Info

In this lively satire, psychiatrist Sidney Schaefer (James Coburn) is recruited by the U.S. government to serve as the president's own top-secret psychoanalyst. On call at all hours and privy to the leader's most private thoughts, Schaefer develops paranoia, which turns out to be warranted, since numerous international agencies are out to get him for his highly classified knowledge. Aided by spy Don Masters (Godfrey Cambridge), Schaefer must survive the many attempts on his life.

    This is such a great wacky adventure comedy movie, it's really different too, and I loved the crazy ending. I highly recommend it.

    "In every country I've ever gone, people hate the phone company!" -- Russian spy Very funny and at times silly comedy about what befalls James Coburn once he thinks he's landed a dream job by becoming the President's personal shrink. But it turns out that many factions would be very interested in the secret thoughts of the leader of the free world! Coburn is very loose as the title character who grows increasingly paranoid about his position and becomes the target of an international manhunt. A whole lot of lampooning gets thrown into the mix, from psychiatrists, hippies, gun fanatics, government, bureaucracy, and yes, the phone company.
