DC 9/11: Time of Crisis ★★ The Big Dance 2004 (R)

Retelling of the horrific terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. while providing a supposed behind-the-scenes view of the reaction of President Bush (played by Bottoms) and his administration. Undoubtedly will cause debates between those who see this as a vehicle to inflate the president's image and combat Michael Moore's flogging in “Fahrenheit 9/11” and others who consider it as fact. Let's remember it's a made for TV flick. 127m/C VHS, DVD .
