The year is 1972, and like most high-school students Betsy Jobs (Kirsten Dunst) and her friend Arlene Lorenzo (Michelle Williams) just want to have a good time. But when, during a class field trip to the White House, they cluelessly wander into a behind-closed-doors, top-secret shredding session, it's time to both wag the dog, and walk it.
Seeking to uncover just how much the witless duo has discovered, the Commander-In-Chief, appoints them "Official White House Dog Walkers", and it isn't long before the girls go from taking Checkers, the dog, out for walks, to taking out Tricky Dick, himself.
Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Betsy and Arlene are cutting the stars out of the American flag, one shot is a close up of their hands - they have almost finished when the camera cuts to a wider shot as they question the legality of the activity. When they resume cutting their scissors are further back then they were in the close up ie. they are cutting where they have supposedly already cut.
