Review The cast is solid, with Michael Douglas doing a credible job as the Commander-in-Chief, Annette Bening being alternately winsome and tough, and Martin Sheen offering hard advice as the Chief of Staff. Michael J. Fox does a believable George Stephanopoulos-type and Shawna Waldron is appealing as the President's daughter. Only Richard Dreyfuss, whose one-note bad guy grates, doesn't do much with his character.

Review The print is crisp and clear, though its tone is just a bit pale. Skin tones in particular look slightly washed out, but not enough to be really annoying. The sound, remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1, is vibrant and clean, highlighting Marc Shaiman's reserved, noble score. Bottom line: If you're a fan of the cast or a sucker for slick romantic comedies, The American President is the movie for you, a better-than-average flick sporting its most handsome home video version yet on this no-frills DVD.
