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.
