Summary:

Alex and Grant are now married, but they still haven't been on their honeymoon since Alex can't find the time. The President Jonathan Hayes has a girlfriend, Cathy, who is having a hard time adjusting to the spotlight, whilst Jess is getting ready to have a great birthday party.

Meanwhile in Oregon a militia group blow up an army base killing several, which gets the President's attention, who then decides to go there and make a speech, not knowing that he is the original target, but why is there another shot after the President is down? With Grant's help Alex discovers that the President wasn't the only target.

The movie starts off with a flashback from "First Daughter" where the militia group gets caught and for a moment I thought i was actually watching that all over again, but no, this was the beginning of First Shot, Alex(Mariel Hemingway is blonde in this one) and Grant (Doug Savant has a full beard this time) are married and we weren't invited to see the wedding ceremony. Agent Courtney Robinson is trying to prove that the new guy agent Owen Taylor (Sebastian Spence looks great in this role) is not gay so she may stand a chance with him, but her partner Doug says otherwise and that's all the fun in the movie there is. The President gets a girlfriend causing problems with how his teenage daughter Jess (She's Libby the mean girl from "Sabrina the teen witch") has to adjust to that and oh yes then the President gets shot.(Gregory Harrison looks great. Huge margin though, in For Ladies Only we get to see him in almost nothing, in this we get to see his belly and that's it. Joking, he does a great job as his recurring role as the President)I'd give it a 7/10.
