Puny New Yorker and gadget tester Fielding Mellish (Woody Allen) is in love with Nancy (Louise Lasser), a beautiful political activist who is herself obsessed by the battles being waged in San Marcos between the dictator General Vargas (Carlos Montalban) and his revolutionary opponents. Thus, in an attempt to impress his beloved, Mellish makes for San Marcos and in a bizarre and bewildering series of events, ends up the president of the country. An early spoof from Allen, in much the same vein as 'Sleeper' and 'Love and Death'; includes an appearance by Sylvester Stallone as a subway hoodlum.
