  1. A gaily funny, shrewdly inventive satire.
  2. Dunst and Williams...turn ditsiness into a frenetic comic duet.
  3. A highly original, often hilarious, what-if farce about Watergate.

    Starting small and building steadily, the movie reaps some fall-down funny laughs.
  5. Reviewed by: John Hartl

    A tasty/tacky treat.
  6. An uproariously dizzy satire...Hedaya has created the year's funniest film caricature.

    Dick works best as a catalog of style: It's the story and the acting that are the window dressing.

It has its charming moments, and the way the Watergate Scandal was portrayed was rather clever, but the leads are just too ditsy and annoying to make this movie actually good. It falls just short of the mark. Worth watching? Yes. Worth rewatching? Decidedly no. Expand
