Yet another teen-princess fantasy.

The President's little girl gets a pity party for the second time this election year.

First Daughter is less amusing than Jenna and Barb at the RNC, and dumb enough to make last January's presidential scion, Mandy Moore, look electable.

Very predictable, but tween girls may like it.

Common Sense Media

Perhaps the only redeeming factor is that both the President and the First Lady are devoted to their daughter. Otherwise, this film should be impeached.

Sweet but unremarkable, First Daughter is never quite as cute as its star.

Audience Reviews for First Daughter

Mush again. Same story, but worse than "Chasing Liberty"

Don't really like Katie Holmes as an actress but Marc Blucas was incredibly gorgeous. Made me give the film a full star. Otherwise, it's just a crappy remake of Chasing Liberty which in my opinion was miles better than this film.
