A truly delightful movie about what became a beautiful Team of Two. Michelle Robinson and Barack Obama were an inspirational couple. While a work of fiction, it does appear rooted in truth. Good acting by the two principals. I just wished…

Strong commentary on the importance of selecting a "true partner" for a lifetime commitment. Often "infatuation and dazzle" are used for selection and those fade quickly and people find they don't really know each other at all. This…

Interesting story about the early days of a former president. Heavy smoker! Must of racked up some huge student loans while at Harvard.

Interesting movie about Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson Obama. I would have enjoyed more of their story, this movie was just about their first date.

A lovely and sweet movie about the Obamas first date.

I loved the movie. The ordinary metamorphosed to the extraordinary. The dialogues were well written and presented. The casting was phenomenal. Overall a very good movie that was undersold. I enjoyed it.

If you are expecting sex, watch something else. Lovely story of how hard Barack had to work to get Michelle interested in him as more than a colleague. (She wouldn't even call their day together a date!) Shows the inner turmoil Barack was…

A beautifully understated, atmospheric film taking place over the course of a single day: the first outing of Michelle Robinson and Barack Obama, who can't agree about whether or not they are on a 'date'. Each shot is a delightful work of…

amazing what can happen in the course of an afternoon and evening. I really enjoyed this movie.

Smart movie with smart dialogue. A refreshing change of pace from films filled with dumb clucks. A good "not-a-date" date movie.

A delightful film based on the Obamas' first date in Chicago's Southside. It deftly foreshadows their future without feeling too heavy handed. Even if you care nothing for politics or the Obama legacy, romance lovers should check this…

Pretty slow and uninspiring considering the amazing subject matter.

A rich outing, perhaps qualified as a first date, for the Obamas when "Do The Right Thing" was in cinemas during 1989. Poor Michele, then 25 years old, did not see what would hit her when she accepted Bar's invitation to a community event…
