The film is a reconstruction of the discovery of the White House link with the Watergate affair by two young reporters (Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman) from the Washington Post, whose dogged investigations hastened the resignation of President Richard Nixon.
All The President's Men is an absorbing drama, which despite its many excellences would have been better with a more audible dialogue track, less murky photography and a cleaner introduction of the characters concerned. The acting, however, is a treat. Entertainment Weekly ranked the film as one of the 25 "Powerful Political Thrillers". According to Box Office Mojo.com, the film earned a "Domestic Total Gross" of $70,600,000.
