Comedy about two high school girls who wander off during a class trip to the White House and meet President Richard Nixon. They become the official dog walkers for Nixon's dog Checkers, and become his secret advisors during the Watergate scandal.Written by
In the Watergate break-in scene, the camera is making the distinctive sounds of an auto-advance mechanism, but the photographer is manually advancing the film. Plus, there is no mechanism attached to the camera. See more »
How dare those people treat us like we're stupid teenage girls.
We are stupid teenage girls.
No. We're human beings, and we're American citizens. And four score and seven years ago our forefathers... did something.

The DVD features a deleted dream sequence which apperantly happens right after Arlene burns all of her Nixon memorabilia. It basically is an extension of the first dream, with here discovering a tape recorder in Dick's back, and then dreams that he is some sort of evil being. See more »
** Great Soundtrack ** Great Acting ** Best if you're over 35**
I just saw this movie for the first time today and I was so absolutely impressed how FUN it was. The absurd explanations as to what 'may' have gone on during the Watergate scandal?! funny funny funny! Michelle Williams I was particularly impressed with. Her fumbling 15 year old quirks and adolescent insecurities were right on target and I really connected with her character. Myself being only about 9 years old when Watergate happened, I even found myself 'googling' the actual trial and the *real* facts just to re-familiarize myself with what now just seems a sort of faded time warp. Reading the *real* events I found myself feeling patriotic remembering a time that seemed so long ago (Vietnam etc.) but then sadly realizing here we are right smack dab doing what we thought we'd never repeat. (Iraq). But hey, this is supposed to be a Positive review of the film so lets get back on the soul train. I have to say I LOVED the soundtrack!!!! each song was a total flashback of my childhood. "Popcorn" by Hot Butter - "Hooked on a Feeling" by Blue Suede - "Come and Get Your Love" by Redbone - and esp "Loves Theme" by Love Unlimited Orchestra with that sexy unforgettable wakka wakka guitar sound and sadly outdated violin orchestra. Do yourself a favor. Rent this film if you want to enjoy a 90 minute flashback of a very clever send up of of real event. 9 out of 10
