When the real president falls into a coma, amiable presidential impersonator Dave (Kevin Kline) gets his shot at the real thing and winds up thwarting his would-be presidential Svengali, setting the nation back on track. The reality: Amiable everyman playing the role of a president known to the American people as a heartless bureaucrat? Equal parts Mr. Smith and Merkin Muffley. Add some jelly beans and you get Ronald Reagan.
