Dave DVD

| DVD

A heart-warming story of mistaken identity and idealism, director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) takes on the political establishment in this fresh, funny comedy. Kevin Kline (Sophie's Choice, A Fish Called Wanda) plays Dave Kovic, a sweet man with a big heart running an employment agency. Dave happens to be a dead ringer for the current president of the United States and he hires himself out as an impersonator for parties and mall openings. When the real president has a stroke while in bed with an aide, his ambitious chief of staff (Frank Langella) decides to hold onto... the White House by appealing to Dave's sense of patriotism and having him pose as the president. Soon, however, Dave is running the country in a way contrary to what the chief of staff would like, even as he finds himself falling in love with the unsuspecting first lady (Sigourney Weaver). The movie's unbridled optimism is its best asset and it makes this a pleasant comedy worth seeing. --Robert Lane [show more]

When a cynical US President suffers a near fatal heart attack while in the arms of his mistress, a small town lookalike, the genial Dave (Kevin Kline), is called upon to act as his double. The doppelganger brings an innocent vitality to his new job, and begins to call the shots, much to the displeasure of the power hungry politician who intends to use him as his stepping stone to the Presidency. Meanwhile, the President's wife (Sigourney Weaver) is at first suspicious and then charmed by the unexplained transformation in her estranged husband's character.

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver star in this box office winner about an uncanny Presidential look-alike recruited as a momentary stand-in for America’s Chief Executive. However, things don’t turn out exactly as planned and Dave finds himself continuing the masquerade indefinitely. Real life Washington politicos and pundits join the fun as Dave uses ordinary-guy savvy to deal with the extraordinary responsibilities of the Oval Office.
