Daffy and endearing
“Dick”, aside from the inherent laugh value in its title (it’s okay, you can admit it) puts an delightful spin on history, suggesting that Deep Throat was actually just two ditzy blondes who got really lucky. Even ten years after we all heard who the mystery informant really was, that’s still funny. This whole thing feels like a counterpoint to “All the President’s Men”, right down to the opening shot (and its explanation for the 18-minute gap in the Nixon tapes was pretty clever).
But this is one hell of a cast (jeez, everyone is in this flick), and the chemistry between Williams and Dunst forms the bubbly and likable core of the movie. If the jokes aren’t doing it for you, I guarantee you’ll like the Ferrell and McCullough take on Woodward and Bernstein. Not to mention pretty much all of Nixon’s staff.
Overlooked and hilarious
This was a huge bomb when it came out in 1999–it was badly advertised and disappeared quickly. That’s a shame because it’s a very fun movie. If ever a film should be rediscovered, it’s this one. Two very dumb teenage girls (beautifully played by Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams) in the early 70s, get separated from their tour of the White House, and accidentally meet Nixon. They start walking his dog Checkers and, inadvertently, discover all about Watergate without even knowing it! It sounds silly (and it is) but damned if it doesn’t work! Dunst and Williams are totally believable (and very lovable) as the teenagers. Dan Hedaya does a perfect interpretation of Nixon. As for everybody else, I couldn’t tell you. I’m no whiz on Watergate and who Nixon’s staff was in the 70s. But the script is sharp, everyone has wonderful comic timing and the best bits were done by Will Ferrell and Bruce McCulloch who make Woodward and Bernstein out to be total idiots. Also an excellent selection of 70s songs which always complement the action. The final gag played on Nixon is uproarious! Well worth watching.
