    "This is one of the better fictional films about the presidency of the United States of American. The characters are so real-life that it is not difficult to believe that they also lead normal lives. They fall in love just like everyone else and they deal with what we have to deal on a day-to-day basis. Except, their movements are magnified a thousand times."

    "I was assigned this film for a movie review and it stuck to me. And here I was thinking that in the old days, the government was free of corruption. It was a shock to me and I learned a lot watching this film. Now I am such a history buff that I try to get my hands on everything political."

    "Funniest movie about a president of the United States. And this was made at a time when it was unthinkable for an African-American person to win the seat. I don't want to spoil it for you if you haven't watched this. But man, Chris Rock is a genius and Bernie Mac is one hell of an actor."

    "If every person who ran for the US presidency has this president's speech, I'm pretty sure 90 percent of them would have won the election. It was such a powerful speech and yes, today, we celebrate our independence day. Fireworks!!!"

    "This is one film you wouldn't want to miss even if you are not into political movies or historical movies. It's like watching a behind-the-scenes portion of a movie but it really happened in real-life. Now some of your thoughts would be answered and some will lead you to think more about your question regarding the Watergate scandal. That said, this is a powerful movie that you really don't want to miss."

    "Next to the president in the Independence Day, Harrison Ford's president is the most bad-ass of them all. Fighting a plane-full of terrorists and winning before saying his famous line "Get off my plane!" I would vote for him in real-life. LOL!"
