(out of 5)

Delightful political comedy, featuring a brilliant screenplay by Gary Ross and intelligent direction by Ivan Reitman. When the President of the United States () is taken gravely ill during sex with a secret mistress, his staff members immediately hire a dead-on lookalike (also Kline) to take on the job permanently. Even the First Lady ()  is uninformed of this particular manoeuvre, and pretty soon she’s noticing a rejuvenation in her husband’s personality that she never saw before. Weaver is excellent, as is a very funny Kline in this intelligent film.
