User Reviews: Not a bad movie. We laughed several times and the soundtrack is kicking. I like that they tried to make it politics neutral. I’d recommend it as a date movie. The problem with the movie is the stars. He is a lot like the character he plays, angry liberal who projects racism and anti-Christianity, anti-Republican while yelling about how they hate. She is just crazy, raising her adopted 3-year old boy as "gender neutral." If you can close out all that negative noise, this is a good effort. The supporting cast is good. His best friend, her advisors, even the secret service guys, well done. We enjoyed it. It had echoes of THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT.
