    First Daughter can be measured in degrees of Holmes' discomfort... There's never a moment when she doesn't appear as if she'd rather be in a different movie. show more

    There are plot holes you can fly Air Force One through. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    A bland, formulaic picture where romance and comedy are noticeably absent. A more wooden and uninspired effort from talented people behind and in front of the camera is difficult to imagine. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    All heart and has the best intentions in the world, but what a bore. It's a beat slower than it should be, it makes its points laboriously, and the plot surprise would be obvious even if I hadn't seen the same device used in exactly the same way earlier this year in "Chasing Liberty." show more

    Connie Ogle Miami Herald

    Just one more in the plague of weak Cinderella stories released in the past year. It's too sugary to be good for you, but in the end, its over-the-top sweetness won't kill you. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    A dull, formulaic romance comedy with an ulterior motive and a sly message. Remarkably, the message is this: "Please Re-elect George Bush." show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    It's a glossy, well-mounted, slickly done but almost stuporously predictable affair, both formula-bound and utterly illogical. show more

    Has any movie this millennium had less reason to exist than First Daughter? show more

    I enjoyed First Daughter. Was there a sequel? It hinted at one and I would like to know for sure.
