I Don't Speak German


May 17, 2024

We continue our election year series on movies about the US President, with a chat about Ivan Reitman's Capraesque 1993 political-romantic-comedy-drama-satire(???) Dave, starring Kevin Kline as a lovable goofball Presidential lookalike who ends up actually pretending to be the President, kindasorta accidentally pulling off a (well-meaning) one-man coup d'état, enmeshed in the plots of the evil White House Chief of Staff (Frank Langella), and falling in love with the First Lady (Sigourney Weaver).
