I'm sure many of you remember it.

It's a standard 90s action movie. Silly, not very thought provoking, but entertaining nonetheless. Typical summer popcorn flick. I saw it in the movies when it first came out.

Harrison Ford stars as the President whose titular plane gets hijacked by supporters of a Kazak dictator demanding his release from prison. Gary Oldman plays the leader of the hijackers.

The reason I bring this movie up today?

I had completely forgotten that Glenn Close played the Vice President who dutifully commands the situation on the ground from Washington.

Back in 1997, the idea of a female "Madam Vice President" was a novelty only dreamed about in the movies.

And now 24 years later, we can finally say it is a reality (along with a black President).

Anyways, that brought a nice smile to my face.
