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.

When First Kid (1996) was rated for video release by the BBFC, 1 minute and 31 seconds were cut, due to the hostage attack in the shopping mall. At the time the BBFC felt that this, and the sudden onslaught of violence, were too intense for a 'PG' certificate. In 2002, all cuts were waived for a 'PG' rating. See more »
In the opening scene at Tyson's Corner mall, Simms' tie changes from a brightly, multi-colored tie to a brown tie when confronted by his supervisor at the Dunkin' Donuts stand (which Simms refers to as an "ugly, brown tie") and then back to the multi-colored tie when he is being promoted to guard the First Kid in Morton's office.

You know what's gonna happen if I let you go? Morton is gonna call me in. Then he's going to chew my butt off. I'll be sitting there and my butt's gonna get smaller and smaller and by the time I get up, my back is going to be on my thighs. Because I won't have no butt. You wouldn't want that to happen to me, would you? Of course you wouldn't.

This is a wonderful Family Movie. We ALL loved it and it leaves you with that "feel good" feeling that romantic comedies leave you with. It doesn't have all the violence that you see in today's movies on television but yet it hints at the cautions of the violence that kids need to be wary of so that it makes you think about it in terms of being cautious. It also hints at a little puppy-love with the thirteen year old kids. The phrases that they use are current so it makes the movie believable in today's times. It is just the right length and also ends very nicely. It's a great all-around movie that everyone can enjoy watching over and over again. I'd see it again and again because I liked it so much.
