In this new 70s comedy opening just in time for the anniversary of Woodstock, we follow characters Betty (Kirsten Dunst), and Arlene (Michelle Williams) on a wacky journey through Washington, D.C. following the Watergate Scandle.

The two are spotted in the White House by a gaurd who originally saw the girls at Watergate the night of the burglary. The two are taken to the infamous "West Wing" where they meet and fall in love with President Richard "Dick" Nixon, played by Dan Hedaya, and very well I might add. Unfortunetly Hedaya's very entertaining performance of Dick couldn't save this already ill-fated non-comedy.

Though many scenes can be very entertaining and somewhat funny, there is nothing really new about Dick that we havn't seen in previous (and recent) comedies, despite the wonderful effort from a culmanation of some Saturday Night Live stars. What's even more unfortunate is that a lot of quality is there, and all of the out-dated styles and clothing are perfect, and alot of the acting, as I said before, is very entertaining, but you begin to feel stranded when we find that there isn't a strong script or plot there to back all of these efforts up.

But it was ok for what it was, but that's not saying much. To put it simply, this isn't a movie we will see winning any Oscars or staying at #1 for 15 weeks. I mean after all, a Titanic...Dick? What would we tell our children?

And the color girls said...
