At the end of the movie, when Duncan and Hallie are going out for a second date, the camera pull back to show Secret Service SUVs and a helicopter following Duncan's car. The buildings are skyscrapers, which are much too tall to be Washington DC, as building codes for the District provide that no building may be taller than the Capitol, which is only 287.5 feet tall. (The Washington Monument is the only exception.) See more »
Hallie, uh, why didn't you tell me you were the President's daughter.

Normally I'd avoid any movie with a title like this, in fact any movie with 'president' in it. However, it only took the sight of Jay Thomas (memorable from Cheers and many other appearances) to hook me and eventually keep my attention until the final rap.
Overall I thought this was an extremely fine movie both in content and performances. It was well-directed and good to watch and in fact offered a pretty believable portrait of life in the white house, unlike most bigger budget movies which tend to gloss over the chinks in the armor.
Unusually, this is a movie from the 1990s which can actually be recommended as solid family viewing.
