Synopsis

Bill Mitchell is the philandering and distant President of the United States. Dave Kovic is a sweet-natured and caring Temp Agency operator, who by a staggering coincidence looks exactly like the President. As such, when Mitchell wants to escape an official luncheon, the Secret Service hires Dave to stand in for him. Unfortunately, Mitchell suffers a severe stroke whilst having sex with one of his aides, and Dave finds himself stuck in the role indefinitely. The corrupt and manipulative Chief of Staff, Bob Alexander, plans to use Dave to elevate himself to the White House – but unfortunately, he doesn’t count on Dave enjoying himself in office, using his luck to make the country a better place, and falling in love with the beautiful First Lady.

Dove Review

“Dave” is the “Prince and the Pauper in Washington DC” circa 1993. Kevin Kline, one of my favorite actors, deftly portrays Dave Kovick, a likeable but unremarkable common citizen who finds himself in an enviable, but potentially dangerous look alike contest – he must fill in for the President of the United States who suffered a massive heart attack. We watch Dave as he progressively feels more comfortable in his role as the leader of the free world. The supporting cast, Weaver and Langella, provide the perfect foil for Kline’s subtle and believable comic preformance. “Dave” is a well-crafted story of the triumph of innocence over corruption.
