One of the best political satires ever put to film. Starring James Coburn as the psychiatrist whose top secret sessions with the president are leading him to a nervous breakdown and making him a target for left- and right-wing assassins.
- " When it works, under the agitated, electric razzle-dazzle of Theodore J. Flicker's direction, it can be a screamingly funny (sometimes just plain screaming) experience. " – Giles M. Fowler (Kansas City Star)
- " Overall it's hilarious stuff, held together by Coburn's tongue-in-cheek performance, one of his best. " – Derek Adams (Time Out)
- " Writer and director Theodore Flicker's satire is modern and biting, and there are many fine, subtle touches in the film. " – Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun-Times)
