Wag the Dog
You need sincerity, even if you have to fake it.
A satire-cum-farce which did OK at the US box office in spite of so-so reviews. Eleven days before a presidential election, the president blows it by getting up to michief with an underaged girl. Desperate to keep the story out of the press, his team decide to create a diversionary news story, about a ficticious war (us verses them) in the Balkans. However, as the truth about the fake war comes closer to being revealed, the team are driven to ever more desperate measures to maintain the charade.
