Luke Davenport is the thirteen-year-old son of Paul Davenport, the President of the United States, and first lady Linda Davenport. Ill tempered Agent Woods is the secret service agent in charge of Luke. Woods is fired after mistreating Luke in front of the press. Woods is then replaced by former boxer Sam Simms, who won a boxing title in 1977. Sam is eager to take the job - even though no one else wants it. Everyone thinks that Luke is just a brat when the only thing Luke wants is to just fit in and be like every other kid at his school, the Georgetown Academy. Sam almost gets fired when Luke gets decked at school by school bully Rob MacArthur. This is when Sam decides to use his boxing expertise to teach Luke how to fight. Luke has his eyes on class-mate Katie Warren, but so does Rob. Katie agrees to go with Luke to an upcoming school dance, so Sam teaches Luke how to dance. Rob is also at the dance, but this time when Rob tries to deck Luke, Luke turns the tables and decks Rob. Sam ...Written by

When First Kid (1996) was rated for video release by the BBFC, 1 minute and 31 seconds were cut, due to the hostage attack in the shopping mall. At the time the BBFC felt that this, and the sudden onslaught of violence, were too intense for a 'PG' certificate. In 2002, all cuts were waived for a 'PG' rating. See more »
When the First Kid punches Rob in the nose, it starts to bleed. However, there is no trace of blood on Simms' suit even though Rob put his face on it while Simms was keeping him away from the First Kid. See more »
I'll have a Harvey Wallbanger. Make it a Harvey Oswald.
What's the difference?
Oswald has three shots.

Why does this movie get such low reviews; it's terrific!!!!! I love Sinbad and he is very funny in all of his movies such as this, "Jingle All The Way," "Houseguest," etc.; he's DA BOMB!!!!! LOL Anyway, it's about a kid who lived in the White House. No, he can't be qualified to run our country just yet, but still... Anyhow, he likes to get spy gear, talk with his buddy Mongoose_12, and use his pet snake to trick people into thinking he's doing homework and stuff...LOL Some parts range from serious (seeing one of the "Home Improvement" kids as a bully; watching the "baked bean" fly out of that bad guy's gun) to LOL (Laugh Out Loud) fun (the spit ball the size of ice cream!!!!!; the pizza/Coke mascot, etc.)!!!!!
Anyways, I've seen this in the theater in 1996, and have seen this a lot on the old Disney Channel after that. "First Kid" is a cool movie!!!!!
