Dick



synopsis:

Spoiler:
When Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein broke the story that Richard Nixon knew about the attempt to bug the Democratic headquarters in Watergate, they identified their source only as Deep Throat. This film theorizes that Deep Throat was Betsy and Arlene, two ditzy teenage girls who witness G. Gordon Liddy's prescence in the hotel during the bugging. To keep them quiet, Nixon hires them as "official White House dog walkers," then "Presidential youth advisors." However, when they learn the truth about what is going on they take their story to Woodward and Bernstein. Nixon attempts all kinds of measures to stop them. He was tricky, they were better.


Discuss this masterpiece film. Lots of great educational, historic moments throughout. Much better than that boring "All the Presidents men"

Actually, I think this film is really funny and I stop to watch it whenever it's on cable.

That's right. Suprmallet has just admitted that he stops for Dick whenever he sees it.

Re: Dick

I love this movie. One of the most underrated comedies. But probably not as good for those too young to have lived through Watergate.

This "history" is so much better and infinitely funnier than the real one.

From what I hear, it's never long enough.

The girls don't show enough skin in the movie until the very end.

That's Mr. Rythm's good advice ... saved your ass .. only cost you a quarter


That said, I own one of the suits Harry Shearer wore in this film.
