Product Description

"Once Upon A Time there lived a lovely girl named Samantha. She had everything she could possibly wish for, and lived in a beautiful white house. The White House Katie Holmes stars as First Daughter Samantha Mackenzie _ a sheltered young woman who just wants a normal school experience, away from the influence of her parents. Only trouble is, her dad (Michael Keaton) is the President of the United States! But nothing will stop Samantha, so, under Secret Service surveillance and a nonstop media glare, she meets _ and falls hard for _ a handsome student who has a secret existence of his own."

Playing the president's kin in the modern fairy tale First Daughter is the most grown-up role yet for Dawson's Creek cutie Katie Holmes. Samantha McKenzie (Holmes) has lived all her life on the edge of the political spotlight, but she hopes that she'll get away from it all when she leaves the White House for college. No such luck. Even though she's able to make friends with her roommate (singer Amerie) and meet a nice guy (Marc Blucas), security is tight in an election year, and the Secret Service follows her wherever she goes. First Daughter isn't particularly original (it was the working title for Mandy Moore's Chasing Liberty, which opened in theaters earlier the same year, 2004), but it's a chuckle-inducing girlie movie that's worth watching for Holmes. Also, Michael Keaton is especially likable as a president and dad. That's a big change for Holmes, who as Dawson's Creek's Joey Potter was a poster child for daughters with dysfunctional fathers. --David Horiuchi

Format: DVD
I thought "First Daughter" was beautifully acted; the wonderful soundtrack also did much to enhance the movie. I totally fell in love with Katie Holmes and Michael Keaton's characters; both acted their roles so convincingly. Holmes is adorable and sweet as the First Daughter; Keaton is a mix of the cool and adoring (and funny!) father who's also fiercely protective of his only child. Their scenes together are very charming - I loved when they shared midnight chocolate cake and when they danced at the Inaugural Ball in one of the last scenes. Keaton's President character makes you wish that he actually was the President. The soundtrack is fantastic too and leaves me wondering why it was never released as an audio CD. I especially loved the songs they played when Sam and her parents were being driven to her school and when Sam, Mia, and the group were frolicking on the water slide. Also, if you are a fan of Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight", there are two dancing scenes set to two different arrangements of the song - magical! I didn't want this movie to end and kept re-playing my favorite scenes, with the volume turned all the way up of course!

The plot itself - about the First daughter who went to College in Carlifornia, far away from the White House, in order to be normal and meet friends may be cliché. Yet the movie on the whole can still hand out nice surprises every now and then. Katie Holmes has a unique face and looks intelligent enough to want to be independent as well as not to disappoint the First family. More importantly, Marc Blucas (her love interest) is not like the stereotyped Prince Charming for a teenager. At least he also looks sophisticated and mature and gives a strong case why the first daughter would fall for him. The two make an attractive couple and are on the same wavelength when they share the views on science etc.

The twist in the movie, at least I didn't see it coming, is good. Considering how many such plots have appeared on screen, I must say this one at least is not as predictable and does give me some credibility as a story about real people. The President and First Lady are not given a significant part here. The young couple already is a good reason to watch the movie. The love songs that accompanied the ball room dances are pleasant and well-chosen. The First Daughter stands out in his genre with its creativity and credible performance by the leading couple.

I also hope that Marc Blucas has great roles in future movies for his refreshing looks and performance.

This movie is great! I love Katie Holmes' character. It is about a girl (Katie) who's dad is the president, and she has to adapt to being the "president's daughter" (First Daughter). She is going off to college, and wants to fit in. She does some crazy stunts, and her dad drops in the polls. She then has to decide between her crazy new lifestyle, or her father. A GREAT MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Katie Holmes proves charming as daughter of the President of the United States in the romantic drama `First Daughter.' From director Forest Whitaker, `First Daughter' features Holmes' playing the character of Samantha Mackenzie - a freshman who navigates college classes, while dealing with testy roommates and romantic entanglements - all under the ever watching eyes of a cadre of Secret Service bodyguards.

Add Michael Keaton as a President running for reelection and Marc Blucas (from the television series `Buffy the Vampire Slayer') as a graduate student with a secret agenda to the mix and the ingredients are all here for an enjoyable, if not intellectually stimulating, diversion for a couple of hours.

Where this DVD fails, however, is its delivery on special features. We have a very short featurette on the choreographed ballroom dancing scenes, as well as a tribute piece to the famous composer Michael Kamen who died shortly after starting work on the picture.

There are also two deleted scenes that are actually merely extensions on existing scenes - more birth control products for Samantha as she endeavors to make her boyfriend jealous and more of Holmes dancing on the bar. They add nothing to the picture and its quite obvious why the extra seconds were trimmed from the final theatrical release.

Where the DVD does deliver the goods though is in the rather laid back commentary from the three young stars (Holmes, Blucas and Amerie). It starts a little slow, but soon livens up as the three began to relax. The three share some entertaining anecdotes about life on the set, and their experiences working with Michael Keaton.

Format: DVD
I loved this movie!! All the stars were perfect, and I think it gives a lot of attention to how hard all the first daughters really have it. And, the commentary was amazing. I would totally recommend this movie to all my friends. I think they should make a sequal when Samantha comes back in the Spring.

Katie holmes plays Sam who is this girl who is struggling to try to be normal,the only problem is her dad is the president. She goes to college thinking she is going to have a normal life when people follow her and there is always agents there. She goes to get together just to find her herself in the newspaper the next day. Then the next time she goes to a party some people to get her attention, and one of them brings out a squirtgun and she is pulled out of the party and taken to her dads office in her bathing suit. Thats when she says some thangs to her dad and her dad backs off on security guards or so she thought. James the guy she falls in love with is a security guard and she finds that out when some things go wrong. Can there be any hope for her and James to be together or for her life to be normal? Watch the movie and find out. I can guarantee you wont be dissapointed.
