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 (continuity error): In a scene at Sydney's office, she goes from one jacketed arm to both arms being in the jacket between shots.
  • Camp David is strictly off-limits to the public and the media. The production designer used someone's personal snapshots from the Nixon Era and a lot of imagination when designing the set.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): At the end of the movie, when The President is getting ready to leave and drive to Sydney's house to beg for her back, she walks in and declares that the traffic is awful. This doesn't make sense; she wouldn't have been able to hear his conversation through the wall because the Oval Office is soundproof.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Sydney is nervously tapping her pencil on the table before her big first date with the President, the position of her fingers on the pencil changes between shots.
