In a country where anybody can become President, anybody just did.

Bill Mitchell is the philandering and distant President of the United States. Dave Kovic is a sweet-natured and caring Temp Agency operator, who by a staggering coincidence looks exactly like the President. As such, when Mitchell wants to escape an official luncheon, the Secret Service hires Dave to stand in for him. Unfortunately, Mitchell suffers a severe stroke whilst having sex with one of his aides, and Dave finds himself stuck in the role indefinitely. The corrupt and manipulative Chief of Staff, Bob Alexander, plans to use Dave to elevate himself to the White House - but unfortunately, he doesn't count on Dave enjoying himself in office, using his luck to make the country a better place, and falling in love with the beautiful First Lady...

Der Jobvermittler Dave Kovic wird als Doppelgänger des US-Präsidenten William Harrison Mitchell engagiert, diesen einige Stunden zu vertreten. Da der Präsident währenddessen bei einem Schäferstündchen mit seiner Sekretärin einen Schlaganfall erleidet, entwickeln der Stabschef des Weißen Hauses, Bob Alexander, und Pressesprecher Alan Reed einen Plan, in dem Dave Kovic so lange "regieren" kann, bis der Vizepräsident Gary Nance entmachtet und Bob Alexander zum neuen Vizepräsidenten ernannt wird. Später soll Alexander das Amt des Präsidenten übernehmen.

Président d'un jour
  • a.k.a. Dave, President d'un jour

Dave Kovic est le parfait sosie de William Mitchell, le président des États-Unis. Ce dernier fait appel à Dave pour éviter une réception ennuyeuse dans le but de passer une soirée tranquille avec une de ses maîtresses. Lors de cette soirée, Mitchell a une embolie. Afin de ne pas dévoiler l'état de santé du président et de laisser le vice-président à l'écart, le chef d'état-major du président, Bob Alexander, décide d'employer Dave à temps complet pour quelque temps, tout en minimisant l'accident cardio-vasculaire du vrai président et en envoyant le vice-président en tournée diplomatique en Afrique. Mais d'abord un peu réticent, Dave se prend au jeu...

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Dave - Presidente per un giorno

Dave Kovic è un qualsiasi cittadino statunitense che però assomiglia in modo impressionante al Presidente. Cosicché, quando questi si becca un ictus, mentre sta facendo un "corpo a corpo" con una segretaria, gli uomini della Casa Bianca mettono al suo posto Dave. Dopo qualche imbarazzo, Dave se la cava benissimo, anche con la First Lady che era in rotta totale col consorte. E tutto si sistemerà al meglio.
