* AcceptablePoliticalTargets: It's a comedy about Nixon.
* AudienceAlienatingPremise: It's a comedy set in the 1970's about two teenage girls who develop a crush on UsefulNotes/RichardNixon and end up becoming major figures in the Watergate scandal. Teens weren't interested in a comedy based around 1970's nostalgia while adults weren't interested in the revisionist history concept (the film also depicts Woodward and Bernstein as a pair of morons) so the film died a quick death at the box office. However, it has become a cult classic over the years.
