The American President is the 1995 romantic-comedy directed by Rob Reiner. The film includes an amazing cast with Michael Douglas, Annette Bening, Martin Sheen, Michael J. Fox, and Richard Dreyfuss. I will say it is fun to see Martin Sheen as the Chief of Staff before he went on to be President Bartlet in West Wing. This film follows the story of the president trying to navigate dating while fulfilling his job as president.
This film would be great to use for last minute sub plans or when looking at the roles of president. The movie guide contains 40 questions to ensure students are following along with the film. I have also provided an answer key for you convenience.
The film is 114 minutes long and is rated PG-13 for some strong language.
