Storyline Heading

Two teens stumble across a room packed full of presidential secrets. In an effort to find out what exactly the girls know, the Commander-in-Chief appoints them as official White House dog walkers.

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Dick is a historical/political satire set during the Watergate era. Viewers who are old enough to remember the events of 1972-1974 may be most amused by the speculative humor, some of which will go over the heads of younger viewers. Young audiences will, however, enjoy the cast of young talent and "Saturday Night Live" and "Kids in the Hall" alums. Though some of the humor is simple and crude, the film will be more appealing to those who enjoy satire.

Critic's Review Heading
Above Average
This may be a first in my six years as a film critic: I'm going to give the bulk of the credit for a film's success to the casting director. The film is DICK, a political/historical satire with a sporadically amusing script and competent enough direction -- in short, the stuff of fairly average entertainment. If DICK pushes over the edge of average-ness, it's because the cast dives into the material with such gusto that the film finds sparks of inspired comedy.
