Forgettable fluff but it left me in an unaccountably bad mood, mainly because it's a step back for Mandy Moore.

Moore's lip-glossed petulance never catches fire with Goode's canned drollery.

It's one TV-movie romp that Kristy McNichol never got around to starring in.

Bastou um pouco de ambição para que este simpático representante do gênero 'água-com-açúcar' deixasse o similar (e ruim) A Filha do Presidente a anos-luz de distância.

Chasing Liberty just isn't worth the effort.

Audience Reviews for Chasing Liberty

Just a really sweet romantic comedy about how you can fall in love with anybody. I also just loved Weiss & Morales, and was so happy when they finally kissed. What can I say I love romance! :) Also Anna & Ben were just perfect :) I love it :) Such an amazing movie (:

The best 'president daughter' type of film that I've seen. This puts 'First Daughter' to shame. Mandy Moore and Matthew Goode make an adorable couple and I really enjoyed the whole story line despite knowing what the end would be like.

Bethany Murphy

Super Reviewer

Anna Foster has no personality. All I can infer from the past hour and fifty minutes is that she whines, fishes for compliments, and all-around fails at actually taking care of herself. Still, Matthew Goode is rather luscious candy for the eyes and ears. He even gets one of those wildly romantic declarations of love with Britishisms like "adored" and "un-bloody-hinged."
