Anna Foster has never had an ordinary life. At eighteen years old, she is the most protected girl in America; she is the First Daughter. Frustrated with her overprotective father, the President of the United States of America, Anna makes a deal with him: only two agents are allowed to guard her while she attends a concert in Prague. When her father backs out of his promise, Anna flies into a temper and goes on the run with Ben Calder, a handsome photographer she runs into outside of the music club. They travel together with the intention of going to the Love Parade in Berlin. Anna hasn't told Ben who she is but more importantly, Ben hasn't told her who he is. Under the orders of Anna's father, Ben is supposed to keep an eye on the rebellious girl but falling in love with her wasn't something he expected to do. Romance blossoms between the wild, sassy Anna and the cool…

Did You Know?
When Anna is in the bathroom at The Roots concert you can see a
The Six Million Dollar Man sticker on the bathroom wall like the ones McGruff hands out later in the movie.
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers):
When the President, his wife and daughter are playing scrabble. The daughter places down Zygote and claims 40 points. A clear shot of the board shows that she should actually claim 60 points Z=10, Y=4, G=2, O=1, T=2 (1+double letter score) and E=1 each: total 20 x triple word = 60
Romance is simply not a feasible option for me right now.
My Guilty Pleasure
I know, I know. This is a teenybop, sickly sweet movie. But I can't
help it. It is my biggest guilty pleasure. I have seen this movie over
10 times and am now buying the DVD.
In a world were most movies are so full of sex and/or violence…you
have Chasing Liberty. Sure you can guess the end within the first 10
minutes, but so what?!? Mandy Moore is just adorable and Matthew Goode
is just…hum…really great eye candy!!! He is just too cute for
The music in this movie is pretty techno and I really enjoyed the
scenes in the concert and at the Love Parade. Keep looking for the CD
of the soundtrack to come out.
Anyhow, I am sure 98 of 100 people will say don't waste your time, but
I disagree. I just love this movie.
