They used to run the country. Now they're running for their lives! Hail to the comedy chiefs! Jack Lemmon and James Garner win a landslide of laughs as two on-the-lam former presidents of the United States. Framed in a scandal by the current president (Dan Aykroyd) and pursued by armed agents, the two squabbling political foes plunge into a desperate and delightfully frantic search for the evidence that will establish their innocence. As they scramble through the real America, they get an unexpected crash course in how their policies affected the citizens. With the three leads in waggish form, spirited direction by Peter Segal (Tommy Boy, Naked Gun 33 1/3) and snappy support from costars John Heard, Wilford Brimley, Lauren Bacall and more, My Fellow Americans convinces all that comedy is king (and president!).
