Watching this in my Government class


Advice to any teachers out there, do NOT show this in a classroom. It'll instantly make at least half of your students fall asleep. Though the actual storyline is entertaining, the actors are horrible as are the scenes they are put in.

Plus, it annoyed me that the guy who played JFK actually reminded me of Nixon.

You don't have any rememberances of Nixon if you are in government class.

Actually, William Devane played a tough Kennedy, the kind of Kennedy everyone wants to remember.

This is a very good film to show in Government Class

I remember seeing it in my government class. We all found it edge-of-your-seat exciting. Then again, our teacher was a hard-core Conservative, so we were always being presented things accurately.
