WILD STRAWBERRIES: DAVE

When President Bill Mitchell suffers a heart attack during some extra-marital activity, lookalike Dave Kovic (Kevin Kline) is called upon to act as stand-in. Under the tutelage of the scheming chief-of-staff, Dave has to learn an array of presidential duties, including convincing the First Lady (Sigourney Weaver) that this nice guy is in fact her two-timing husband.

Plenty of laughs and a little satire too in this Capraesque romantic comedy.
