"One of the 50 Coolest Websites...they simply tell it like it is" - TIME

Dick | 1999 | PG-13 | - 3.2.5

Two ditzy teenage girls are named official White House dog walkers after President Nixon believes they've uncovered some incriminating evidence about his involvement in Watergate. With Kirsten Dunst, Michelle Williams, Dan Hedaya, Will Ferrell, Bruce McCulloch, Teri Garr, Dave Foley, Jim Breuer, Ana Gasteyer, Harry Shearer, Saul Rubinek, Devon Gummersall, Ted McGinley, Ryan Reynolds and G.D. Spradlin. [1:32]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some sexual innuendo (including mild references to incest, pornographic movies and masturbation) and a couple of kisses. A girl pushes a boy onto a bed and they kiss passionately for a little bit; when he gets up, we see some of his underwear underneath his unzipped pants. It's implied that a man and woman have had a sexual tryst (both are clothed; the woman's lipstick is smeared). A girl tells another a brief, clinical definition of fellatio. Through binoculars, a man briefly watches a clothed girl dancing in her bedroom. We see an illustrated poster of a naked couple embracing (only the man's back is visible) and two girls in midriff-revealing tops and short shorts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Mostly played for laughs: men slap at each other, a man lightly grabs another's arm, a girl roller-skates into a pole and falls down, a van follows and then nearly runs over two girls, broken and disheveled things are in a house that's been ransacked, a girl burns many pictures of a man in a wastebasket, a boy's buttocks are apparently pierced by a pin, a boy burps and a man's flatulence is audible.

LANGUAGE 5 - About 3 F-words, several anatomical references (plus some double entendres with "Dick"), several scatological references, many mild obscenities, some insults and name-calling, several obscene finger gestures and a racial slur.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Watergate, the White House, Vietnam, politics, drug use, anti-Semitism, crushes, deception.

MESSAGE - Two seemingly clueless girls were responsible for Nixon's resignation; don't underestimate anyone's ability to uncover the truth, no matter how ignorant he or she seems.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
