Dave Kovic is a good-natured man who just happens to look like the President of the United States. In fact, he is such a double for the Chief Executive that the Secret Service hires Dave to be a stand-in for him when he wants to get out of a luncheon. Then when the president has a stroke while having sex with one of his aides, Dave becomes the permanent stand-in for him. The Chief of Staff at the White House plans to use Dave and take over the presidency, but it turns out that Dave wants the job, and as he's doing his best for the country, he's also falling in love with the First Lady.
