Yet another teen-princess fantasy.

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.

[A] gimmick-driven disaster.

Holmes' wholesome charm keeps the movie afloat, but only just.

If you must see one of the two Presidential daughter movies - this is the one to see. But like Chasing Liberty, it never delivers on the potential of the premise.

This stunning lack of inspiration is reflected in a script that continually hints at how teenagers have become disenchanted with politics without ever following it up.

Keaton and Holmes should seriously consider firing their agents, as they both deserve better than this.

...basically entertaining - particularly if approached on the same level one approaches a sitcom.

The movie's most interesting character is Agent Dylan (Dwayne Adway) because he almost never says anything. Would that all the actors had been so eloquent.

Merely another sugary confection rolling off that increasingly bland Hollywood conveyer belt

...didn't Mandy Moore do this film back in January?

Stupendously dull and infuriatingly obtuse, this is the cinematic equivalent of unflavored gelatin, bland and tasteless, but much less beneficial for your nails.

Unfortunately, the screenplay quickly descends into utter illogic, and ... Whitaker fails to sustain the fairy-tale atmosphere he's so clearly striving for.

You try binge drinking when you're followed around by two burly Secret Service agents.

Why do female screenwriters willingly create feel-good fairytales that send American girls messages more suitable for the Wonder Bread years than for today?
| Original Score: 1/4

It's not a brilliant film, and much of it is predictable -- yet it has a few laughs, and its target audience will enjoy it. Adults won't find it altogether unpleasant.
