Critics Consensus: A taut, solidly acted paean to the benefits of a free press and the dangers of unchecked power, made all the more effective by its origins in real-life events.

Superb Woodward and Bernstein Watergate story.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that All the President's Men is a classic drama based on the true story of the reporters who uncovered the Watergate scandal. It has some tense moments, strong language (including "s--t" and "f--k"), smoking, and drinking. Kids may need some historical context in order to understand the story's complex characters and situations, but those who stick with it will take away positive messages about persistence and dedication to the truth.
