    By pure force of talent and "likability" Kevin Kline manages to turn this somewhat cliche' plot into a delightful little comedy that I totally enjoyed. I found it admirable that, with little or no makeup , Kline was able to make Dave and the President two completely different characters. As a sometime actor myself, I can testify that this ain't easy to pull off. Bravo.
