Film Review - Dick
What a disappointment! The trailer made this such a great possibility. Dick is a really stupid spoof of Watergate and how two ditsy teen-aged girls brought down the President of the United States. Everyone in the film is an idiot. Woodward and Bernstein are portrayed as a couple of fools taken on a ride by these two airheads. Finally, there is Dick himself. Dan Hedaya's portrayal of Nixon is a really piss-poor caricature of a man who is dirt-easy to make fun of.
This should have been a slam dunk for parody. Director Andrew Fleming screwed the pooch. Don't see this unless someone puts a gun to your head, and even then think twice.
