Critic Reviews of "Dave"TIME MagazineAugust 02, 2013
A genial, expertly played political comedy proves that the spirit of Mr. Smith still lives.Seattle TimesAugust 02, 2013
It's impossible to say whether Dave will play as wonderfully over the decades as it does right now, but this smooth-as-silk comedy could not be more timely, or connect more hopefully with our current national consciousness.Philadelphia InquirerAugust 02, 2013
While it's sloppy and draggy in parts, Kevin Kline, in the title role, delivers an ingratiating comedic performance.Orlando SentinelAugust 02, 2013
Kline is so polished and resourceful that he can glide his way through even the creakiest bits and make them seem fresh.Los Angeles TimesAugust 02, 2013
Though replete with amusing situations and clever lines, its strongest suit is the delicately pitched comic performances of its actors, most especially star Kevin Kline.New YorkerAugust 02, 2013
After the promisingly nasty beginning, the filmmakers settle into a sort of campaign mode, lulling and flattering the audience with a fairy-tale vision of the common man's victory over the Washington establishment.Radio TimesAugust 02, 2013
[A] delightful, gentle satire on the Washington political scene.Philadelphia Daily NewsAugust 02, 2013
Dave isn't too careful about filling plot holes. It does a pretty fair job, however, of making jokes at the expense of the D.C. political scene.People MagazineAugust 02, 2013
As Kline begins to take his presidential duties seriously, the comedy seeps out, a listless civic-mindedness drifts in like fog off the Potomac.South Florida Sun-SentinelAugust 02, 2013
Despite the familiar echoes, the film works more often than it should. Without the charming Kevin Kline in two roles, plot problems would yawn like sinkholes.Film4August 02, 2013
Despite its predictability this is one of director Reitman's best films, a gentle satire which provides Kline with one of his most likeable characters.Christian Science MonitorAugust 02, 2013
Kline gives a tremendously likable performance as the ersatz president, and Sigourney Weaver brings charm and elegance to the role of First Lady who's as ignorant of the switcheroo as the rest of the country.
