First Daughter
Samantha Mackenzie (Katie Holmes) just wants to have a normal life as she goes off to Redmond College. The problem is she happens to be the daughter of the U.S. President (Michael Keaton). That should make any chance of her having a normal, everyday ordinary college life quite difficult. But she's determined to do just that, so she politely asks her father to allow her some freedom; stating that it is not necessary for her to have two secret service agents following at all times. Her father appears to relent. Unbeknownst to her though, he sends a secret service agent (Mark Blucas) to pose as a college student. Naturally, the two begin to fall in love. How will she handle it after inevitably discovering the truth? An even more important question is how did 2 films get made and released within the same year about the same subect? If you saw "Chasing Liberty" with Many Moore back in January when it was released, just imagine the same story without that European vacation. Both films originally registered the title "First Daughter," but to settle the problem, "Chasing Liberty" got the earlier release date, and this one directed by Forrest Whitaker got to keep the more relevant title. Neither of them are worth considering much further, but if you'd like to choose one, pick "First Daughter."
