Kind of fun, but forgettable. Frank Langella is a high point. Maybe too sweet hearted.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Shades of PRISONER OF ZENDA! U. S. president, incapacitated by stroke, is replaced by look-alike (and everyman) Kline, who proceeds to win over the press, public, and even the president's estranged wife (Weaver) in this amusing political comedy. Farfetched premise made believable by winning cast and cameos by celebrities, real reporters, and actual U. S. senators!
