For this review I am just going back in time, so it is kind of like a teen-blast-from-the-past. I saw this years ago, considering it is from 2004, it might have been 7 years ago which is quite a long time. That being said, I watched it again just to fill my mind with a mindless romantic comedy and switch myself off for a while.
Although I am not a big fan of romantic comedies, this movie serves more a role of a great memory. I love those teenage movies that I watched when I was 15 or 16. Everything seemed so good and sweet and now when I watch them, they don’t feel like those lame and silly romcom’s (although they definitely are) but rather a cute movies. Addition to this, I would say that I wouldn’t recommend it to my young self now but considering the context, I recommend it to those fun girl’s sleepovers with junk food and gossip.
Story is simple, the president’s daughter longs to have a social life – especially a boyfriend or just a man in her life (not only the bodyguards). And when the president and his family go to Europe for a political visit: all the president’s plans hit the fan and the “action” begins. Reason is simple, the daughter, Anna (Moore) escapes the bodyguards and meets Ben (Goode). I think it says it all and no need to go further into the movie. All in all, it was just a great entertainment for me and my friend to watch together (while being in different cities and syncing our movies – cause we are weird like that) in the evening instead of studying. We had a great time, laughed at the ridiculous things and just spent some quality time – while being separate. That’s what I call a friendship!
