The American President

"Why can't the most powerful man in the world have the one thing he wants most?"

Widowed U.S. president Andrew Shepherd, one of the world's most powerful men, can have anything he wants -- and what he covets most is Sydney Ellen Wade, a Washington lobbyist. But Shepherd's attempts at courting her spark wild rumors and decimate his approval ratings.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): In the scene where the President first calls Sydney (at her sister's apartment) to ask her out, the whole time of the phone call you can see the crew on the window reflection
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Lewis is chewing out the congressman, the hand holding the telephone changes between shots.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Sydney leaves the residence at the White House after her first night with the President, she wears earrings that she didn't have the evening before (when she came promptly to tell him why she couldn't see him anymore). I can assure you no woman exhibits earrings like that at 5 AM if she hadn't worn them before (hiding in her pockets?!?). During the same scene, it's amazing to observe A.J. with his hands in his back, in his pockets and in his back again through the movements of cameras.
  • President Bill Clinton and his staff granted permission for the cast and production design team to visit the White House on several occasions.
