When the president of the United States dies in an humiliating circumstance, the Secret Service calls on Dave, an average, ordinary guy who happens to be the splitting image of him. Dave takes over the president's duty (well pretends to anyway) including the duty of being the first lady's new husband. Dave, even though he was never actually elected into office, feels that the government is out of line and takes the liberty of brushing up the nation. A winning political comedy that is enjoyable and amusing in exactly the right places. Kevin Kline does an excellent job playing Dave and the president. A recommended venture for everyone!
