After ditsy, Washington, D.C., cocktail waitress Sunny Davis (Goldie Hawn) single-handedly saves an Arab dignitary (Rich Romanus) from an assassination attempt, she becomes an overnight media darling. Soon White House bureaucrats hire her to work in the protocol office, and Sunny earnestly navigates her new role. But when she discovers she's being used as a political pawn, she takes matters into her own hands -- sending global diplomacy into a tailspin. Good premise with a very good Goldie Hawn and a quality cast that includes Chris Sarandon, Ed Begley Jr, and Jean Smart that never gets off the ground.
Vice President Merck: Sunny, what are your plans?
Sunny Davis: I don't have any. I mean, well, I have a job at the Safari club and Lou, well, he's my boss and he's really a nice guy and everything, but business hasn't been so hot and I was kind of hoping for an advancement, you know, but the problem is that Lou's aunt works the cash register and his sister's the hostess so I'm just gonna have to wait around until one of 'em quits or drops dead. I guess you know what that's like, hmm?
Vice President Merck: Hmm!
Most part of the movie is a silly comedy, but those are closed with her long speech. The sequence of the public hearing at the end of the movie is very nice. Especially last three words by her.
Goldie pulls a camel on the poster for this movie!
I love this movie for a myriad of silly reasons! It is silly and yet quite tongue in cheek. I worked for the government for 17.5 yrs and totally recognize the characters in this movie! Knew them- worked for them! Seldom got to work with or under them, these people sadly still run our government! Watch and learn in fun!
Fresh take of becomming an American!
This values the movie, Goldie's character first learning about the Declaration Of Independence and Our Bill of Rights while sharing with Muslam Women, very touching scene in this otherwise very silly and truly fun little movie!
It is simply silly in the underdog triumph way of the little guy/gal in America can sometimes outsmart all the wise-school learnin' of snotty arrogance that will sell us out for a buck & a !
Comedy=Silly Fun Stuff, silliness, funny stuff, sillier than serious, from the silly to the sublime as I say, all shades of silly set off my funny bone for different reasons and I try not to over Anaylse That!
Early Gay theme dealt with very charmingly!
BTW---Will & Grace stuff!
