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

The dance scene was shot at Harry F Byrd Middle School in Richmond for the senators' logo on the gym walls and floor. See more »
In the opening scene at Tyson's Corner mall, Simms' tie changes from a brightly, multi-colored tie to a brown tie when confronted by his supervisor at the Dunkin' Donuts stand (which Simms refers to as an "ugly, brown tie") and then back to the multi-colored tie when he is being promoted to guard the First Kid in Morton's office.

I'm gonna be watching you, Simms, and the minute you screw up you're gonna be working mail fraud in east Cleveland. You understand me? OR AM I YELLING AT TOO HIGH A FREQUENCY?
No, Sir, I got my ear piece in.

1m 31s were cut when the film was originally rated due to the hostage attack in the shopping mall. The BBFC felt that this and the sudden onslaught of violence were too heavy for 'PG'. In 2002, all cuts were waived for a 'PG' rating. See more »
'First Kid' is one of the many kid friendly live action films that Disney churn out featuring a popular personality of the time. In this case it's Sinbad. If it were made today it would probably be The Rock.
It's not a good film, I'm sorry to say, with a weak plot and weaker performances.
The only funny thing I found was the sight of Timothy Busfield of 'West Wing' fame walking around a White House not governed by Martin Sheen's Jed Bartlett.
Apart from that this is an unfunny mess of a film.
