Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: When McGruff gets a tattoo it is ready instantly, anyone who ever had a tattoo can testify that it can take up to two weeks to heal and you DON'T want to walk around in the sunshine with it during that time. But, with the fact that he doesn't have a tattoo later on, it's obvious it's a temporary one, one that can come off easily at the wearer's choosing.See more »

Secretary of State:Sir, the vice-president, still waiting.

Mandy Moore carries the movie on her back., 15 November 2007
Author: insomniac_rod from Noctropolis

Entertaining teen flick about the daughter of the President of the USA. This girl is not spoiled or snobby, no, so there's not the typical cliché. The problem with her is that she can't enjoy her liberty at full because all of the events that surround her father's "Job".

Everything changes for her when she travels to Europe and decides to escape to chase her liberty. She there meets one of her father's private investigators and there a typical movie romance starts. But the events of the movie are really entertaining and also suggest a message for those girls who are chasing their liberty or whatever.

I caught this movie on HBO about two years ago and I enjoyed it pretty much mainly because of Mandy Moore's unique on-screen charisma and her beauty. Also, the story has enough elements to be considered as entertaining and funny.

I recommend this movie for those who can enjoy light humor and some clichés from teen flicks.
