Four rogue Secret Service agents, led by one named Baron, commandeer the house of war-widow Ellen. Her home is a prime sniper position for their plan to assassinate the President on his visit to the small town of Suddenly. The men fool the local cops except for one, Todd. A washed-up former war hero and deputy who is now the town drunk, Todd served with Ellen's deceased husband and has developed romantic feelings for her over the years. But she rebuffs his advances. Todd visits the house and is immediately suspicious of Baron, but no one will listen to the ravings of a drunk. Once Todd realizes what is going on, he manages to kill one of Baron's crew, but is captured. Now he and Ellen must find a way to stop Baron and his men before they kill the President.

Early in the movie, when the fake secret service agents are hiding in the house, the real agents show up to check out the house and its occupants. They make a big deal out of looking at everything and getting everyone's name, but fail to notice the fake agents' vehicle, presumably with out-of-state license plates parked right in the driveway. The fake agents park the SUV in the garage before the real agents arrive. What seems to be a goof is that once the real agents leave, the SUV is shown parked back outside. The fake agents could have pulled it back out of the garage, but this is never seen. See more
Well, now you can get real, and heal.
