Editorial Reviews

American President/Dave (DVD) (DBFE) (Multi-Title)

Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline are both President and accounted for in two hit comedies about the nation's Oval Office. Rob Reiner directs The American President [Side A], starring Douglas as a widower chief executive whose poll numbers plummet when he falls for an environmental lobbyist (Annette Bening). Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox, Richard Dreyfuss and more top talents co-star in this nimble exploration of private romance in a public Presidency. And in a land where anybody can become President, anybody just did! Kline and Sigourney Weaver star in Dave [Side B], the wry Ivan Reitman-directed story of a lookalike who becomes a stand-in for the country's actual President. From coast to coast the votes are in:this double feature is a winner by a landslide!

We purchased this disc containing Dave and The American President. We love both movies. But the authors compressed the content too far making the disc and the picture comes out blocky showing too many compression artifacts. I recommend buying the titles separately.

I enjoy the movies but the quality is just not there. It's been a little while since I watched the DVD but if I remember correctly, one of the movies doesn't even fill up my 46" flat panel either way. Because of that we used the TV's zoom feature which made the picture even worse.
I absolutely can NOT recommend buying this version, even at the awesome price I got it for. If you just want the movies to say you have them, buy this. If you really want to enjoy the movies, buy them separate and get better quality recordings.

American President and Dave are among my favorite movies. 2 great movies on the same dvd !

The quality of the video in these dvds leaves much to be desired. The quality reminds me of something you would see if you taped the show and you didn't have cable/satelite (antenna) and then tried to use filters to reduce noise. The original DVD release of American President had noise in it too but the picture seems more "pixelated" in this release. I guess since these movies are well over 10 years old a higher quality format doesn't exist? Actually, My eariler comments about the quality was its appearance on a LCD monitor. It looks quite decent on TV.

That being said it is very convient having 2 movies on 1 dvd at a great price, so I would recommend this dvd over VHS anyday.

"American President" and "Dave" are both fun and romantic movies. What a deal getting two movies for the price of one. I agree that letterbox format on the "American President" is a little disappointing. Still a great deal!

The American President is a pleasant romantic fantasy featuring a President (Michael Douglas) who plays the Clinton we wanted but, alas, didn't get. The movie is charmingly idealistic; Bening is a treat, and the supporting cast is perfect, Dreyfuss especially enjoyable. Perhaps this movie is the liberal's fantasy, especially poignant these days, but it is also a kind of up dated Frank Capra film, with Good and Romance triumphing.
Dave is even better. Kevin Kline is irrisistable in the role of a President look-alike (he plays the President as well). With a wonderful sense of comic timing and a splendid script, this impossible story becomes completely believable. Like The American President, this is another Capra-esque story, but here the addition of an average guy put into the Presidential role is a kind of flattery to the audience -yes, we think, we could do that as well. I loved the scene where Kline brings in his old friend to work out the budget as they snack on brats. Supporting cast is terrific. Weaver can be both icy and melting; Langella is intimidating and fierce (and also quite funny), and Rhames is perfect. I should also mention Linney, very funny, and Kingsley, quite touching. But the show belongs to Kline, and he brings it off with brio. A lovely film.

These are two of my favorite romantic comedies, and it's wonderful having them together at a great price. However, the video quality of both movies is extremely poor. If you want to show off your home theater, this is not for you, but if you are just looking to pick up a couple of great movies at a very reasonable price, this I would certainly recommend this set.

The American President is one of my all time favorite movies...but this product was really lacking in quality to my utter disapointment. The viewing was not pleasurable. I do not usually read product reviews but now I wish I had seen some of the comments from other customers as I would not have bought the item...

I bought this DVD of both films because I enjoyed the drama, trials and consquences in them, and I'm glad that they got together in this DVD so I can continue watching them one at a time and enjoy even more! I'm also glad capitions and subtitles are permitted in it since I'm a Deaf person!
