"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

If I were President of the Movies my platform would be immigration reform - helping combat the prejudice against foreign-language films and helping them integrate into American society. I'd definitely appoint Isabelle Huppert to a cabinet position, "Secretary of Scary Uncompromising Art." Also in my cabinet would be Kenneth Lonergan (Secretary for Proper Screenwriting and Recognisable Human Behaviour), Martin Scorsese (Secretary for Film History and Preservation), Angela Bassett (Secretary for Under-utilised Talent) and Nicole Kidman (Secretary for Total Cinephilia).

Tony Leung Chiu-Wai would be the intern who'd bring my presidency to a scandalous end...

If I were President of the Movies my platform would center on two things: More repertory screenings and NO MORE REMAKES, and I'd definitely appoint Marty Scorsese to a cabinet position, "Secretary of Film Preservation."

If I would be President of the Movies my firs act to sign into law would beI would to establish a fair act to offer equal opportunities for females in Hollywood. This would prevent Talented Actresses from being misused as grieving wives, or oversexuallized cartoonish vixens or being paired next to Nicolas Cage . I would also, reform ourlrelations with International Film and I would sign the fair distribution act, which would protect internationally lauded films from being shoved to an undetermined date distribution in the United States, thus not benefitting from festival word of mouth by not having immediate US distribution followed their festival success. My cabinet would consist of Pedro Almodovar as Secretary of Foreign Actress affairs, Woody Allen would be the Secretary of Labor for Domestic actresses, Michael Haneke would be the Secretary of Provocation and Psychological Complexity; Jane Campion would be Secretary of Visual gorgeousness; Sandy Powell would be appointed Secretary of Proper costume Design; Lars Von Trier would be an official Misogyny Consultant for the Actressexual party and Tilda Swinton would be the speaker of the house of Androgyny and Magical bizarreness . I would be joined by Vice President Streep.

If I were President of the Movies my platform would focus on reform of the MPAA ratings system and elimination of that kind of awkward, ponderous musical scoring heard in so many comedies (not quite sure how to describe it, anyone know what I'm talking about there?). Werner Herzog would be my entire cabinet and personal bodyguard.

If I were President of the Movies my platform would be to ensure that all actresses over the age of 40 would continue to win great roles and have as many opportunities as performers with penises. To further this agenda, I would appoint Jessica Lange as Secretary of Fabulous Actresses Who Still as Hell Got It. Nicholas Sparks books will be banned from screen adaptation. And I promise to enact a law that prohibits Seth Rogan from ever appearing on a movie screen again. God Bless Cinemerica!

If I were President of the Movies my platform would be FREE LOVE. Secretary of Nudity would be Nicole Kidman and her "Undersecretaries" would include Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Ryan Gosling, Anna Paquin and Chloe Sevigny. Extreme violence would get the NC-17, full-frontal male PG-13.
