The president is about to become embroiled in a scandal only a couple of weeks before the election. Enter Conrad Brean (Robert De Niro), a political spin doctor who together with a Hollywood producer (Dustin Hoffman), engineers a fake war to distract the public’s attention. Barry Levinson’s satirical comedy says some interesting things about how politicians and the media can change not only the opinions of the populace but their actual knowledge as well. However, the real strength of Wag the Dog is its witty and well-timed banter between Hoffman, De Niro, and a host of great actors in well placed cameos.
