It’s Presidents’ Weekend (at least that’s what we’re calling it with Presidents’ Day on Monday, February 19th)! So, what are some of our picks to watch this weekend? Let’s get presidential! Sing it to the tune of “Physical.” Do you think Trump was singing “Let’s get presidential, presidential. I wanna get presidential!” Sorry, enough of that, let’s get to our weekend picks:
Donald Trump is not the only “star” to run for office! Roseanne For President! on Hulu features Roseanne Barr embarking on a campaign for the highest office in the land. This 1 hour and 36-minute movie features Rosie O’Donnell.
Seven seasons of The West Wing are available on Netflix. This series has won 26 Emmy Awards and was voted the seventh best drama of all time by TV Guide. Follow President Josiah Bartlet and his administration through the ups-and-downs of their administration. If you are on a Winter Recess, you can binge-watch The West Wing for the entire week!
If you haven’t already seen House of Cards on Netflix, now may be a good time to binge on the first five seasons. With another season in the pipeline, you won’t want to stop watching to see what happens next.
Amazon is not lacking in the area of presidential content if you have Prime, so you’re going to have to cough up some coin to watch The American President or Dave.
Dave is recruited to become a presidential stand-in because he looks just like the real president. This 1993 romantic comedy stars Kevin Kline, Sigourney Weaver, and Frank Langella.
From 1995, this comedy / drama tells the story of a widowed president that falls in love with a lobbyist. Starring Micheal Douglas, Annette Bening, and Martin Sheen. Catch The American President on Amazon.
