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

Love has no boundaries
8 January 2007 | by datta-shourjendraSee all my reviews

This is what we find in this very simple but definitely watchable romantic movie.Katie Holmes in the title role looks absolutely gorgeous and others like Michael Keaton as US President,Marc Blucas as her lover,Amerie as her vivacious room-mate in college all do justice to their roles as well.The story line might be clichéd but the presentation is good and overall acting is quite decent.I personally feel that its a nicely made romantic movie which you can watch with all members of the family,contrary to present genre of so-called romantic movies.The much used 'Princess-meets-the-common-man-and-what-happens- there-after' theme has been handled very nicely.It really proves that Love really doesn't have any boundaries after-all.
