Dick (1999)

dick

Story of two girls who wander away from a White House tour and meet President Nixon. (IMDb)

The splash of ditzy teen girl naivety (Williams and Dunst perfect the parts with plenty of Napoleon Dynamite-esque geekiness to go with the shrieks and giggles) amidst the no-nonsense world of politics is uproarious, and even more so as the leads start to get wise (“It’s too much pressure!”) and confident (see the perfect final scene: “You suck, Dick!”). The exaggerated 70s setting offers more to enjoy (see their ridiculous outfits, Carl’s hairpiece, and the disco soundtrack) in this fun comedy.

7.3/10
