Storyline

Samantha Mackenzie loves and supports her parents, US President John Mackenzie and First Lady Melanie Mackenzie, and enjoys the privileges that she has received being the only daughter of the President, but sometimes she wants to be what she considers "normal" which means not having her life scrutinized by the world 24/7. She made the decision to go away to college in California at Redmond University in large part to get away from life at the White House and hopefully assert some independence, this first stint at college coinciding with President Mackenzie's reelection bid for a second term in the White House. As such, he knows that his opponents will exploit whatever they can, including placing even more scrutiny on the family, and having even more threats than usual against them meaning his want for more security. So Sam's college experience is less than normal, being followed by a very visible team of Secret Service agents, who are trained to notice the smallest things that may be ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Samantha Mackenzie: What are you doing?
James Lansome: A chocolate snack must be poured directly over the popcorn. That way you get that delicious salty sweet mixture, and a little melted chocolate. Sometimes you gotta break the rules. You never know when you're gonna get something inspired. Well, go on, Mackenzie. Break the rules.

Not what I expected...
26 September 2004 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

hey it's a cute movie. I expected it to be a lot worst than it was. I read a lot of reviews for this movie before I saw it. I thought it was going to be really bad. But the acting was awesome and they stayed true to the story. Which makes me think it's a good movie. If you are looking for drama and in-dept insight on being someone that is close to the president, this is not it. But if you are looking for an emotional link to what it's like being a person close to the president, this is IT. Katie Holmes did a great job portraying a first daughter. it wasn't really about breaking out and being wild. it was breaking out and being a human.

key scene: father daughter relationship - when you cut off being the president to be a parent....it was key. Especially if you are getting threats on your family's life EVERYDAY.
