2. OTHER VIEW Here’s what another critic says about “The American President:” Jay Boyar/Orlando Sentinel: The president at the center of “The American President” is a lot like Bill Clinton. And the movie itself is a bit like Clinton too. Unabashedly populist. Vaguely liberal. Very big on promises. Not so big on following through.
