When the President of the USA needs to divert attention away from a sex scandal, ace spin doctor Conrad Bean (De Niro) enlists film producer Stanley Motss (Hoffman) to make it look like there's a war going on. Hoffman, channelling Robert Evans, is hilarious and there's a splendid comic rapport between De Niro and Heche as his cucumber-cool assistant.
