TCP#15: The American President

Welcome to the November 17th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes where we post about a movie each week. Last week, we had Western Movies and there wasn't much response to it, probably because many Couchers haven't warmed up to this genre yet.

Anyway, if you haven't seen the Kevin Costner starrer film entitled Dances with Wolves yet, then head on to Hazel's blog: Delineating Des to take a peek and find out why she liked the film.

And on to this week's feature: Movies about President or Their First Families. If you love politics, the comings and goings in the White House, the President's struggles between family life, love and national responsibilities, or if you just want things to be different for the President and the first family, then come share your movie with us.

I would like to feature The American President, a 1995 film starring Annette Bening as Sydney Wade and Michael Douglas as President Andrew Shephard. I love the plot, and I love how this President was able to fulfill his responsibilities in the office as well as the needs of the woman he loves. This is a romantic comedy that is worth watching. Be amused at the President's attempts to go on a date with Wade until he successfully gets one and feel his loneliness as he struggles to raise his daughter. The story takes place when the President is approaching the end of his first term where approval ratings count, the enquiring press had to be satisfied with the right answers and not to mention a strong policitcal opponent who is watching your every move.

For the benefit of those who haven't seen this film yet, here's the theatrical preview from YouTube:

Do check out other Coucher's entries for this week. And if you are joining us, please don't forget to leave the link URL to your TCP's ENTRY at the MckLinky below. And oh, we appreciate your comments too!

That's it for this week Tuesday Couch Potatoes. We'll see you again next week for our feature, Animals Rule!, where animals, well... RULE! Thank you so much for joining us. Till next TCP! Hugs!

The American President was on HBO either last year or just several months ago. That's where I watched it, and I liked it.

It's kinda ironic that there was little response to the Western genre when the filipino culture (as most TCP participants are pinoys) is heavy with American influence. I for one is not very keen on it. I'm delighted though that Dances With Wolves is the subject of review today :-)

I love this movie. If I made a second pick, it would have been this one. I love that he tried to get her flowers and the florist couldn't believe it.
