Dave ★★★ 1993 (PG-13)
Regular guy Dave Kovic (Kline) is a dead ringer for the President, launching him into the White House after the prez suffers a stroke in embarrassing circumstances. Seamless comedy prompts lots of hearty laughs and the feel-good faith that despite the overwhelming odds, everything will turn out just fine. Political cameos abound: look for real-life Senators Alan Simpson, Paul Simon, Howard Metzenbaum, Tom Harkin, and Christopher Dodd as well as the commentators from TV's “The McLaughlin Group,” and Stone, poking fun at himself on “Larry King Live,” as he tries to convince the public there's a conspiracy going on. 110m/C VHS, DVD .
