Peter Segal

Rating:
PG-13
My Fellow Americans is a 1996 comedy about two former presidents making a run for their lives. Current U.S. President William Haney (Dan Ackroyd) has a money scandal on his hands. Like any successful politician, he finds a way to pin the blame on someone else. In this case, it is the two preceding White House residents, President Matt Douglas (James Garner) and President Russell P. Kramer (Jack Lemmon). Although the two former election rivals have been on opposite sides of the political spectrum, they form an unlikely alliance to clear their names and save their lives. First, their helicopter transport explodes, and then they must find an incognito way to Kramer's Presidential library in Ohio for evidence. Along the way, they pose as celebrity impersonators and encounter a wide array of strange fellow Americans in the form of an Elvis impersonator, a salty truck driver and a lesbian motorcycle gang. Director Peter Segal avoids politics and keeps the focus on the antagonistic relationship between these two large and contrasting egos for a delightful comic combustion.moreless
