Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Dick

Betsy and Arlene are two ditzy teens who unknowingly become witnesses to Nixon's Watergate scandal. In an effort to silence them, a White House staffer introduces them to Nixon, who appoints them the official dog walkers of the President. The girls gladly welcome their new high profile status and start to create comical situations that affect national and international policy. When they soon realize Nixon's terrible nature and dirty secrets, they approach reporters Woodward and Bernstein and become informants, albeit without hard evidence. Nixon realizes that he's up against a real threat in the form of the two teens and starts to harass and spy on them. When the girls finally get hold of an incriminating tape recording, Woodward and Bernstein print the story, which ousts the President.

Best part of story, including ending: It reminds me of "Forrest Gump," where a dim-witted character becomes an agent of change.

Best scene in story: When the girls bake Nixon brownies laced with marijuana.

Opinion about the main character: Betsy and Arlene are clueless but they at least know enough to do the right thing.

What would happen if the Deepthought who brought down Nixon were just the white house dog walkers, two not so bright teen age girls. This was the story of these two girls. The story follows the girls as they witness the Watergate buglery untill the succed in getting Nixon to leave, and as Betsy says "They never lie to us again."
The review of this Movie prepared by Kaitlin

Dick is a wonderfully funny movie about the Watergate scandel. Two best friends, Arlene Lorenzo (Michelle Williams) and Betsy Jobs (Kirsten Dunst), witness the breaking-in of the Watergate complex and when President Nixon finds out, he makes the two "Official White House Dog-Walkers". As a practical joke, Betsy calls the Washington Post and tells Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein that she and Arlene have information. They call themselves "Deep Throat".
