The President's daughter has lived a sheltered, protected life, but not by her own choosing. She goes off to college, and she just wants to be a normal student, but she's burdened with a high profile. She has the almost impossible task of doing what every kid does when they go off to college, and that's separating from your parents and becoming your own person.
Comedy Romantic - There's a little humor, some feel-good moments, some romance and a
few tear-jerker moments (ladies bring your tissues). It starts out
very sweet and perfect and you think this isn't going to be a very
realistic story. Fortunately it gets real and gives you a very
interesting look into the life of a President's daughter.
PROFANITY: Just 4 mild words. SEX/NUDITY: One scene of suggestive dancing. VIOLENCE: None DRUGS/ALCOHOL: One scene of drunkenness. ACTION: None COMEDY: A dozen or so smiles and about the same number of mild chuckles.

Roger EbertFull Review Average 'First Daughter' is all heart and has the best intentions in the world, but what a bore. It's a beat slower than it should be, it makes its points laboriously, and the plot surprise would be obvious even if I hadn't seen the same device used in exactly the same way earlier this year in 'Chasing Liberty.'

We collected 102 moviegoer opinions. Outstanding opinions from the teen and twentysomething groups. You'll notice that there is a very high percentage of "Fantastic" opinions from these two groups. Also, virtually no one gave it a low opinion.

"First Daughter" is a movie I can certainly recommend!
Samantha Mackenzie (KATIE HOLMES) has fame and glamour, but she just
wants what every college freshman wants: the opportunity to experience the world away
from home and, most importantly, away from her parents. She just wants to be treated
like anyone else. To be… normal.
But it's not going to be easy, because Sam's home address is 1600 Pennsylvania
Avenue, and her dad is John Mackenzie (MICHAEL KEATON), the President of the
Now living thousands of miles away from the White House, Sam hopes that being
out on her own means she'll be free of the constraints of being the First Daughter. But
everywhere she turns there's a Secret Service agent at the ready, and her fellow freshmen
won't let her stop being the most famous student in the country.
Sam's roommate, Mia (AMERIE), is determined to have fun - and take Sam
along for the ride. Sam's adventures get even more interesting when she meets and falls
head over heels for James (MARC BLUCAS), the Resident Advisor in her dorm.
College - and life - has even more surprises and challenges in store for Sam, and she's
determined to discover where she belongs, what she wants, and who she really is.
