Storyline

Luke Davenport is the thirteen-year-old son of Paul Davenport, the President of the United States, and first lady Linda Davenport. Ill tempered Agent Woods is the secret service agent in charge of Luke. Woods is fired after mistreating Luke in front of the press. Woods is then replaced by former boxer Sam Simms, who won a boxing title in 1977. Sam is eager to take the job - even though no one else wants it. Everyone thinks that Luke is just a brat when the only thing Luke wants is to just fit in and be like every other kid at his school, the Georgetown Academy. Sam almost gets fired when Luke gets decked at school by school bully Rob MacArthur. This is when Sam decides to use his boxing expertise to teach Luke how to fight. Luke has his eyes on class-mate Katie Warren, but so does Rob. Katie agrees to go with Luke to an upcoming school dance, so Sam teaches Luke how to dance. Rob is also at the dance, but this time when Rob tries to deck Luke, Luke turns the tables and decks Rob. Sam ... Written by Todd Baldridge <sandib@eastky.com>

Trivia

When the first kid is in the White House basement you see "C. Clinton" most likely for Chelsea Clinton written on the wall however this movie presumably takes place in 1996 when Bill Clinton was still in his first term therefore would still be living there. See more »

Goofs

When Luke gets beaten up at school, a cameraman can be seen behind Simms. However, the cameraman is *supposed* to be seen. He is not part of the film crew, but instead an actor playing a paparazzo recording the fight. See more »

This is one funny movie
29 July 2002 | by (Palos Park, IL USA) – See all my reviews

I watched this on ABC last night, and I laughed. Sinbad and Timothy Busfield are both people who protests the first kid Luke Davenport (Brock Pierce) but not at the same time. And if you don't have time to go and visit the White House in person, the next best thing is to rent or buy this movie. Plus if you watch this movie you will see a lot of rooms in the White House than you would if you took a tour of the White House. As the movie opens, Luke Davenport is being rushed though breakfast by his Secret Service Guard Woods (Timothy Busfield). Luke has to do back to school shopping. But when Woods rudly takes Luke into the dressing room, Luke's mom (Lisa Eichhorn) decides that she no longer wants Woods procting her son, and Woods ends up fired. Right way Sam Simmons (Sinbad) gets the call in the mall. Where at the White House he learns that is has been picked to protect Luke Davenport than the president (James Naughton). Right away there are some problems, but Sam Simmons takes care of it. Zachery Ty Bryan appears as Luke's classmate and bully. And you know who has to go to school with him. That would be Sam Simmons (if you didn't know). But parents this movie has been rated PG by the MPAA. 10/10
