Special Home Video Version

With responsibility for world peace, national debt and dessert choices at state dinners, the President of the United States carries a heavy burden. With all that pressure, it seems like a good idea to find him an analyst. Someone to talk to. And Dr. Schaefer (James Coburn) gets the job. Unfortunately for the shrink, the more the President gets off his chest, the bigger the price on the good doctor’s head. Hostile governments want Coburn captured so they can learn what secrets are confessed in the Oval Office. Friendly governments was him killed. What follows is a succession of comic near-misses.

Some music has been changed for the home video version of this title.
