Judging by their looks, conservative United States President Bill Mitchell and liberal minded temp-agency owner Dave Kovic could be identical twins separated at birth. When two Secret Service agents, at Chief-of-Staff Bob Alexander's request, clandestinely draft Dave into servicing his country by temporarily standing-in for President Mitchell, the carefree humanitarian gladly answers his call to duty.

After all, as the President's look-alike Dave has aped austere Mitchell before.


Luckily, the plan goes off without a hitch. But in an ironic twist of fate, President Mitchell is incapacitated, leaving Dave in a political hot-spot. Dave finds himself in the oval office filling in for the president who has fallen ill. Lacking the political savvy of the real president, Dave proceeds to govern the country with a refreshingly straight-forward approach. Once Dave takes the extraordinary opportunity to implement progressive programs, reduce the national deficit and significantly effect social change, he nearly overturns Mitchell's reactionary administration, even as the very handlers begin conspiring against him.

Academy Award Nominations: Best (Original) Screenplay.

Original aspect ratio of 1.85:1.

Actor Frank Langella gained 25 pounds for the role as chief of staff Bob Alexander in Dave. Senators Paul Simon, Tom Harkin, Christopher Dodd, Alan Simpson, Howard Metzenbaum and Justice Abner J. Mikva made cameo appearances along with The McLaughlin Group, liberal columnist Michael Kinsley, journalists Nina Totenberg, Eleanor Clift, Kathleen Sullivan, Richard Reeves, and Helen Thomas. Oliver Stone parodies himself as a conspiracy-theorist guest on the talk show Larry King Live and entertainers Jay Leno and Arnold Schwarzenegger play themselves!!
