My Fellow Americans


1h 41m 1996

Brief Synopsis

Two former Chief Executives, Russell Kramer and Matthew Douglas, who hate everything about each other -- but hate their lives out of the political limelight even more -- are thrown together and on the road. When a scandal brewing in the White House threatens to implicate both of them, Kramer and Douglas head out of the Beltway and into the real America to dodge the operatives who want to track them down. There, they learn a lot about the country that elected them -- a lot they never suspected -- as they get to the bottom of the scheme.
