Dick is a American comedy film directed by Andrew Fleming from a script he wrote with Sheryl Longin. Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams star as Betsy and Arlene, two warm-hearted but unworldly year-old girls who are best friends, and who, through various arbitrary circumstances, become the legendary " Deep Throat " figure partly responsible for bringing down Nixon's presidency. Dan Hedaya plays Nixon. Betsy comes from a wealthy family in the Georgetown area, while Arlene lives with her widowed mother in an apartment in the Watergate building. One night, on a quest to mail a letter to enter a contest to win a date with teen idol singer Bobby Sherman , the two girls sneak out of Arlene's home, at the same time as the Watergate break-in. They manage to enter and leave through the parking garage by taping the latch of a door, accidentally causing the break-in to be discovered.
