1979, Movie, PG, 85 mins

Shoddy comedy with a potentially funny premise. It is 1998. Chet Roosevelt (great-grandson of Franklin) is President. The US government runs out of money, and the President is forced to hold an international telethon to raise enough money to bail out the most powerful nation in the free world. Sounds like it could be funny? It isn't. The film is ruined by a lousy cast; episodic subplots involving a White House aide, Willard, who conspires with an Arab-Jewish terrorist organization (the Hebrabs--Hebrew/Arabs. Get it? Ha, ha.) to overthrow the ailing government; and a production company that was more interested in selling soundtrack albums than making a decent comedy...
