''The American President'' is a 1995 romantic drama directed by Creator/RobReiner (in his first film after the infamous ''{{North}}'') and written by Creator/AaronSorkin, starring MichaelDouglas, Annette Bening, Creator/MichaelJFox, and Creator/MartinSheen. These days it is most noted for being basically a dress rehearsal for Sorkin's later TV series ''Series/TheWestWing'', which included a number of the same actors, albeit in different parts.

This also grabs the attention of Senator Bob Rumson (Richard Dreyfuss), who has an eye to challenging Shepherd in the next election, and wants to use his relationship with Sydney to drag the President through the mud. This calls into question Shepard's previous "family man" reputation and his professional judgment as the "most powerful man on Earth."

* FashionHurts: Lucy is helping her father put on a bowtie for the state dinner and he complains that it's too tight: -->'''Lucy:''' It's supposed to be tight. It's supposed to make you look regal. -->'''Shepherd:''' Is it supposed to cut off the blood flow to my face?

* SarcasmBlind: Shepherd's aide Janie is going over his daily schedule with him. She mentions a meeting with American Fisheries and that they'll be giving him a 200-pound halibut. Shepherd tells her to make a note that they need to schedule more events where someone gives him a really big fish. Janie actually starts writing this down, then Shepherd says, "Janie, I'm kidding."

* LifeImitatesArt: Shepherd tries to call Sydney Ellen Wade, and gets mistaken for a prank caller. In real 2008, after UsefulNotes/BarackObama was elected, he made a phone call to Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. She cut the President-Elect off, saying "I'm sorry but I think this is a joke from one of the South Florida radio stations known for these pranks," and then hung up. Within minutes, Obama's then Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel called her to say that President-Elect Obama wanted to speak with her...and she hung up on him too. Obama had to ask a friend and fellow Congressman of Ros-Lehtinen's to call and convince her that she was not being pranked, and the President-Elect was really trying to call her.

* FiveFiveFive: Averted when President Shepherd gives Sydney the White House's phone number as 456-1414. Dialing that number with the 202 area code belonging to Washington D.C. actually does connect you with the White House's receptionist.
