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 was key. Especially if you are getting threats on your family's life EVERYDAY.
