| Can't we try to get along? Sophisticated humor.
This is a well written comedy. Some of it is dry, but very potent. The former First Lady Tess Carlisle is played to perfection by Shirley MacLaine. She has her own reasons for picking Doug Chesnic (Nicolas Cage)to head up her Secret Service security detail. Chesnic is puzzled and reluctant, because the former First Lady is not one of his favorite people.

MacLaine and Cage played their parts like no one else could. The interaction was sometimes hilarious. And then came the tender and touching enlightenment. Sometimes well-to-do people get cranky just because they are lonely.

Rounding out the cast are Richard Griffiths, Edward Albert and David Graf. Hugh Wilson shares writing credits, as well as directing this enjoyable film. Give it a chance to grow on you.
