The American President tells the tale of a situation that has never happened in modern US history, a President who is a single parent. Michael Douglas brings a long list of accomplishments to the Oval Office, where his charm and smarts will fight off all his enemies who would love nothing more than to hit a man while he’s down. This film is jammed packed with brilliant actors/actresses including a future TV President, Martin Sheen. The story itself seems very unrealistic, despite the efforts the writers made to show us a different perspective of the Presidency.
