Annette Benning and Micheal Douglas have the hottest on-screen chemistry since pairs like Richard Geare and Julie Roberts and Dirty Dancing. They really push the bar on excellent character development and emotional.performances. This is definitely a classic to be enjoyed over and over again!

By the same team that created A Few Good Men. This political rom-com is a shouldn't miss. Reiner teams Michael Douglas and Annette Benning together and deliver Sorkin's always great banter.
