Synopsis

White House Madness
Funnyman Steve Friedman stars in this satiric comedy that pokes not-so-gentle fun at the political and personal foibles of Richard M. Nixon in the wake of the Watergate scandal. Nixon finds his administration crumbling around him, his allies turning against him, the courts beginning to hound him, and an exorcist is even called in to drive the demons from his soul -- all to no avail. White House Madness wasn't director Mark L. Lester's first onscreen stab at Nixon; in 1972, he made a short comedy, Tricia's Wedding, spoofing the nuptials of the then-president's daughter which starred the notorious San Francisco drag troupe The Cockettes. White House Madness also generated controversy of its own some years later when it was discovered that one of the investors was Texas Senator Phil Gramm, who had originally put money into another of Lester's productions (a comedy poking fun at beauty pageants), only to have those funds rolled into the Nixon satire when the other project collapsed. Al Lewis and Patti Jerome highlight the supporting cast. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
