Movie Reviews

This has cult hit written all over it.
DaveP | USA | 02/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I feel for those who had the unenviable job of marketing this movie. Who do you aim it at? Teens, most of whom know nothing about Nixon and Watergate, or adults, who will dismiss it as being another obnoxious, dumb teen comedy? Hence the box office failure. But what true hidden gem this film is! The writers have managed to put elements into this film that will be able to please the entire spectrum of viewers and knowledge of the Watergate scandal is not at all required to enjoy this hilarious film, but if you happen to have a grasp on it's history, your enjoyment will increase tenfold. The performances of everyone involved are top-notch with special notice going to Dan Hedaya (Nixon dead-on)and Michelle Williams (watch her shy expressions and mannerisms as she develops her crush on Nixon. Priceless!). Many, many scenes left me laughing hysterically (the beach dream scene, Haldeman's interrogation of the girls, Hello Dolly meets Breshnev, Bernstein hovering over Woodward at the Post). Add great music, costumes, sets and a fitting ending, and you've got a great movie experience. Don't miss it! (And for a treat watch this as a double bill with ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN!). If you get the DVD you're in for more of a treat with a hilarious blooper outtake reel (Nixon & Kissinger praying on the Oval Office floor ("Do you want a hug?"), a music-only track, a director & producer commentary track, making-of-featurette and a deleted scene. This is a must-have!"
The True Story of Watergate?
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 05/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dick is a tremendously funny movie that spoofs the gravity of the Watergate situation. It combines fictional characters with the real people who were involved. Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams play two dim-witted 15 year olds, Betsy & Arlene, who unwittingly stumble across G. Gordon Liddy and the Watergate break-in (Arlene lives at the Watergate) after sneaking out to mail a letter to Bobby Sherman. On a class trip to the White House, they again see Liddy and pick up the infamous CREEP list. Through a series of hysterical coincidences, they meet Richard Nixon, become official dog walkers and secret youth advisors, give Nixon cookies laced with marijuana, find the secret tapes, contact Woodward & Bernstein, are revealed to be the actual Deep Throat and provide the key information that takes down Nixon. The movie has a great soundtrack of 70's songs and is filled with authentic clothing and props. The cast is first-rate with Ms. Dunst & Ms. Williams perfectly playing the ditsy girls. They have fun with the roles, acting silly and impetuous as real teenagers would. Dan Heyda plays Nixon with the perfect amount of heaviness and Will Ferrell & Bruce McCullough are an absolute scream as the bickering Woodward & Bernstein. The cast is full of funny people including Dave Foley, Teri Garr, Jim Bruer & Harry Shearer. Dick is a well written, clever, funny and completely entertaining film."
THE BEST COMEDY OF 1999 !
Jeff | Schaumburg, IL USA | 11/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is definitley the most overlooked movie of the year. Not only is it funny but it's also extremely smart. The razor sharp oscar worthy script by Andrew Fleming and Sheryl Longin is matched by the excellent comic timing of Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams.If that's not enough the supporting cast is priceless. Will Ferrell and Bruce McCullough as Woodward and Bernstein is nothing short of inspired. Dan Hedya's performance as Dick is everything a supporting actor oscar is meant for.Dave Foley and Jim Brewer have small but funny characters worthy of their talent. Don't remember the name of the actor who played Dunst's stoned brother but he's also very funny.The soundtrack accompanies the film perfectly.Don't be fooled by the advertising. This isn't just another formula "teeny booper" movie, but rather a smart and brillant satire. I think this DVD will give this overlooked gem the second life it deserves."
Sex, Drugs, and Roller Skates; must be the White House

"Dick is a great comedy for adults. Coming off as a kid's movie in previews, I was refreshed and surprised at the caliber of the comedy. Every character is comical genius, all the way down to the stoner, draft-dodging brother. I could not stop laughing at the mad camp adventures of these two clueless DC socialites. I almost broke a rib!I can't urge you enough to buy this movie. It is defiantly going to be a party house favorite."
