First Daughter | 2004 | PG | - 4.3.3

A young woman (Katie Holmes) struggles with her own identity when it comes time for her to go off to college and leave her family. That may seem normal for any young person, but what makes her situation slightly more difficult is that her father is the President of the United States (Michael Keaton) and he is on the campaign trail running for re-election. When she demands not to be followed by Secret Service agents everywhere she goes, her father seemingly agrees. However, he assigns an agent disguised as a student to protect her, and the two soon fall in love. Also with Marc Blucas, Margaret Colin, Dwayne Adway and Andrew Caple-Shaw. Directed by Forest Whitaker. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A young man and a young woman kiss, and another young woman enters the room interrupting them. In addition, a young man and a young woman kiss tenderly several times. A young man puts a young woman in her bed and kisses her on the forehead (she is intoxicated). A young man and a young woman dance, they come close to kissing several times and they look at each other longingly. A young woman tells her roommate to come back in two hours (she has a young man in her room). Several young men dance around a young woman, making suggestive gestures (thrusting their hips and touching their buttocks). Two young women wear provocative outfits (short shorts, laced up boots, tiny t-shirts) and go out to a bar where they drink heavily and one of them gets on top of the bar and dances while young men hoot and cheer her on. A young woman leaves a young man a note inviting him to meet her the following night. It is implied that a young woman is promiscuous. A young woman goes to a clinic and says, "I am here for my birth control appointment." A young woman talks about, "getting some action." A young woman describes a man as "a little sexy." A young woman grabs another young woman's pant leg, and the pants pull down slightly to reveal a part of her thong underwear (we see this again in photographs). A young man puts his arms around a young woman's shoulders to show her how to squirt a water gun. A young man removes his sweatshirt briefly revealing his bare abdomen and part of his bare chest. Two young men invite a young woman to a pool party and tell her to wear a bikini. A woman talks to a young woman about her bosom having, "come in nicely." People are shown in swim attire at a pool party. Young women wear low-cut tops that reveal cleavage in several scenes. Women wear evening gowns that reveal cleavage, bare shoulders and backs in a few scenes.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A young man punches another young man in the face and carries a young woman off, over his shoulder. A young man (holding a water pistol) is wrestled to the ground by the Secret Service and a young woman is taken away in a car. A car crashes into another car near a crowd on a sidewalk, and a young woman is rushed away from the scene. Two young women argue in front of a crowd of people. A young woman is perpetually hounded by the press and paparazzi. Several members of the press chase a young man and a young woman, and a man on rollerblades is knocked down in the process. People tease a young woman and make fun of the way she dresses, in several scenes.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
