is  some of the entertaining casting with Robin Williams as Dwight Eisenhower, James Marsden as JF Kennedy, Liv Schreiber as Lyndon B, Johnston, John Cusack as Richard Nixon and Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan. Minka Kelly resemblance at Jackie Kennedy as does Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan. There is humour, too. Daniels paints a brilliant picture of all the changing time.  There is some powerful scenes as well some interesting one.
