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

Heart warming movie that reminds you falling in love is the best that can happen in this world...
8 December 2004 | by Angel_eponineSee all my reviews

I've seen this movie twice and the first left me wanting for more. If you analyze the movie it's ordinary but what makes it extraordinary is the actors who played really good in the movie. Katie Holmes and Marc Blucas played a good pair.

Though there are some cheesy parts like when they kissed on the last part after handing the car key then turned there backs and run to kiss each other it was really awkward. I've seen those kind of scenes in Dawson's Creek with Pacey and it just didn't work. Very cheesy..

I fell in love with the theme song which was sang by Tamia I think it's called "Dance of my Dreams".
