The American President

The widowed President of the USA invites a woman he likes (Sydney) to a state banquet. They fall in love, but the press turns it into scandal and the opposition leader uses it as an excuse to run down the presidents character. He will not defend his private life to the world and his popularity at the polls plummets. He then loses the love of Sydney when he is forced to get the environment bill that she is campaigning for thrown out (and her fired as a by-product) to defend his own crime bill.

Other mistake: This error occurs during the scene in which the President and Lewis Rothschild are riding in the limo, just after the President has broken a date with Syndney. The background scenery, visible through the windows of the car, is noticeably in slow motion, even though the car (and the people inside it) are moving at regular speed.

More quotes from The American President

Question: I have a question about the scene where Sidney receives the ham from the President. At the theatre I believe someone read the note aloud, but my video cut that part. Does anyone know what the note said?

Answer: Sydney mouths the words to the note and laughs, but she doesn't say the words outloud.
