Iffy for 13+

Funny, scatalogical movie about President Nixon.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know there is some very strong language, including puns relating to the President's first name and a whispered explanation of the original meaning of "Deep Throat." Betsy's brother is a heavy drug user who is perpetually stoned, and some of his marijuana makes its way into the cookies the girls make for the President.

  • Families can talk about the real events underlying the Watergate scandal and the impact it has had on the way we see the Presidency and the way the media covers the Presidents.
