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

  • In frustration, Lewis Rothschild (Michael J. Fox) smacks a can of Diet Coke across the room. At one time, Michael J. Fox was a spokesperson for Pepsi Co.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): In the scene where Sydney and AJ meet to discuss the legislation regarding the reduction in fossil fuels, behind AJ is hung the famous Trumbull painting of the Committee of Five presenting the completed Declaration of Independence to John Hancock and the Second Continental Congress (the subject is sometimes erroneously believed to be the document's signing). Throughout the scene, it appears that the painting has been hung backwards - John Hancock is seated to the left of the viewer instead of the right. Given the general ubiquity and fame of the painting, it is unlikely that it was hung incorrectly, indicating, instead, that the entire scene had been flipped.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Sydney first spends the night in the residence at the White House, the President, (Michael Douglas), is awakened by Lewis stating that the press is camped out at all entrances. When Lewis comes up to the Presidents bedroom and then is followed by A.J and Robin, the President puts on his robe. In one shot shortly after putting on the robe the t-shirt he is wearing is scrunched up at the neck under his robe - the shot continues from a different angle and the t-shirt is perfectly straight.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Sydney tells the guard, "This is my first time at the White House." But later, when Shepherd asks if she's ever been in the Oval Office, she replies, "I've just been on the regular tour."
