Additional Info

The scandals of the Reagan administration are dramatized in farcical style. The First Lady must locate, before it is too late, a home made sex videotape on which she cavorts with the husband of her best friend, with his mistress who knows much too much, and with members of her husband's cabinet. In addition, her son decides to run away to become a ballet dancer and, along the way, falls in love with the ex boyfriend in hiding of the angry mayor of the largest northeastern city. Everyone meets, or tries not to, in the Georgetown home of Foppy Schwartz, friend to the rich and powerful, where first ladies and mayors drop in and refuse to leave. Just Say No is a hysterically funny satire that has a great deal to say about the state of our union.
