Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

An underrated actor, Sinbad is very good in this comedy-drama about a Secret Service agent who gets the thankless detail of guarding the president's bratty son. In time, the two become touchingly close, with Sinbad's character providing the kind of surrogate fathering the boy's ultra-busy dad can't give. The plot takes an inevitable turn toward greater drama when the young man is kidnapped, but director David Mickey Evans handles the whole thing very well, and the resolution makes for fairly satisfying action. But Sinbad's presence is an agreeably warm one--though he is also quite funny and original in early sequences when the prez's son is tormenting him--and makes this film surprisingly watchable. --Tom Keogh

I love family movies that you can watch with the kids.

First Kid was an excellent movie: Funny, entertaining and with a good moral storyline as well.

Always makes me laugh even though the material is just a little dated.

Just seeing the name of this great movie brings back a great memory from 1996. At the age of 18, even though I was officially an adult, thanks to being a member of the Fox Kids Club in my area as a kid, I was able to win free tickets to see a prescreening of First Kid because I knew Sinbad's name. My girlfriend on one side and a good friend on the other, we had to travel an hour to get to the theater where the prescreening took place, but if there was ever a movie worth an hour's travel, First Kid is the one! I still remember the loud chorus of laughter, particularly when Sinbad got the bully back with the huge spitwad, and the rest of the movie had no lack of great moments either. First Kid is delightfully funny, but at the same, it has a lot of feel good moments to it, and I truly feel for anyone who hasn't seen it. Great music, great times, great entertainment for all! With First Kid, you just can't go wrong!

Format: DVD
Sam Simms (Sinbad) is an unorthodox Secret Service agent. The Secret Service assigns Agent Simms to protect the President's son, Luke Davenport (Brock Pierce of "Might Ducks"), code named Prince. Luke has managed to dispose of several previous Secret Service agents by driving them crazy, including Agent Woods (Timothy Busfield of "Thirtysomething" and "The West Wing").

The movie tries to portray Luke as a child ignored by his famous mother and father and unable to have a normal childhood. Though I empathize with Luke a little, he also generally acts wimpy. However, thirteen-year-old Luke has stirrings of normality as he gains a huge crush on classmate Katie Warren (Erin Williby in her final role) and has a run-in with the class bully. After the run-in with class bully Rob (Zachery Ty Bryan), Luke and Agent Simms begin to bond, and this movie really takes off.

Much of the movie is humorous, as it was intended to be. Most of the humor works, making this movie generally enjoyable. Sinbad steals the show, as you might expect. Sinbad mixes slapstick and one-liners that only occasionally clunk. Sinbad makes Luke Davenport look good and sparks life into the plot.

As with many Disney movies of this type, there are serious undertones. The movie becomes most serious near the end when Luke Davenport runs away from the White House and encounters a life threatening situation. Secret Service agents are in a panic as they try to locate the President's son. Fortunately, Agent Simms, just fired from the Secret Service for aiding Luke in going to a school dance, has a way of finding Luke that only Agent Simms knows about. The end of this movie is nicely plotted and enjoyable to watch.

I enjoyed watching Sinbad in this movie.

First Kid is yet another Sinbad laugh-riot. It's not as funny as Houseguest, but First Kid is nevertheless worth a look.
Sinbad stars as a Secret Service agent assigned to look after the Luke, the juvenile son of the president of the United States. Sinbad attends grammar school with Luke, to ensure the Luke's safety.
Anyway, several of the other kids pick on Luke because they think Luke is a snobby punk. E.g., in one of the scenes, Zachary Ty Bryan (from Home Improvement) shot a spitball through a straw, hitting Luke in the head. However, Sinbad got even with Zachary - he later shot a huge spitball (about as big as a mini-basketball) through a huge tube at Zachary. It hit Zachary in the face, nearly knocking him out of his seat! I almost lost it when I watched that scene! It was gut-bustingly funny! That scene alone is worth the price of this DVD!

I'm glad I refreshed my memory and watched this while on vacation. It was better than I remembered. Sinbad was hilarious as Agent Sam Simms who is assigned to protect the President's rebellious son, Luke. Simms helps Luke with his bullies, get the girl, and how to dance and form a friendship. It has a few dark moments for being a Disney movie, but still a decent movie for the family. I would recommend FIRST KID!!!

I thought this was a good movie, a bit predictable, but what Disney movie in it? Starring some very talented actors, it makes the most of the not-so-stellar script. Sheer star power gives this movie it's hiliarity and warmth. One of the best parts is @ the school dance, btw, does anyone know the name of the song The First Kid and his crush Amy slow dance to? The Cinderella one?

I think that this movie was very good. Sinbad is a very good actor as well as Brock Pierce. As soon as you see the first five minuites of this movie, youll never want to stop watching it. You can watch it over and over again withought getting bored.

I am sure we were all dubious when we learned that the comic stylings of Sinbad were to be put on parade in what seemed like a formulaic Disney live action film. This has never been Disney's strong suit, as such films as 'No Deposit No Return' testify to. However, First Kid turned out to be a delightful romp through the lives of America's first family.
This is a great movie for families, and in a world where violence and strong languange seem 'flagrante vous etu fei', isn't this enough to warrant purchasing this awesome film? The answer, surprisingly, is perhaps. I give it five stars, despite the obvious four stars I gave it before I wrote this.
Thank you and God Bless America.
