The girl who always stood out is finally getting the chance to fit in.
Samantha MacKenzie, the daughter of the president of the United States, arrives at college with a group of Secret Service agents. Samantha, however, resents their presence and decides she wants to attend school just like a normal student. Her father agrees to recall the agents but secretly assigns James, an undercover agent, to pose as a student. They fall in love, but their romance is jeopardized when Samantha learns James' true identity.

While this is the second movie released in 2004 that deals with the President's daughter getting "involved" with a secret service agent, it is by far the better. That's no claim to fame though since the first was Chasing Liberty with Mandy Moore. They are both cut from the exact same mold and have very little new ground covered. One variation that is somewhat interesting/twisted here is the First Lady does not side with her daughter at any point. She places the politics and needs of the nation before the needs of her daughter and demands she leave school to go on the campaign trail after the embarassing dancing on the bar fiasco. Katie Holmes is 26 years old playing a college freshman and looks every bit the part. Way to go Tom Cruise.
