A contemporary fairytale that’s
Verified purchase
lighthearted and not too woke.

POTUS dies and VEEP is a widower. It’s time for a new election to happen and w/o a wife by his side, a young upstart Senator, with D.C.’s version of a Valley Girl wife, is a shoe-in to be the next President. Enter FLOTUS’s girls. They come up with the brilliant idea for her to “run for the office of First Lady” and set out to make that happen. VEEP is onboard and the rest, as they say, is history. This enjoyable, political fairytale is off and running.

The movie is loaded with typical tropes, (backstabbing party members, conspiring besties, old school vs. new school, dumb blondes, revered older patriots, and on and on), but they work in this vehicle. A secondary storyline of a past love for the First Lady is finagled into the story. It has its cute moments and sweet times but much of it is clunky, especially the resolution.

It’s too bad the writers couldn’t refrain from taking potshots at the current FLOTUS when this film was written. Not only were they inaccurate, it just wasn’t appropriate. One flippant comment about the character would have sufficed, not the repeated lessons on decorum…sigh.

It’s got clean language and is free from sexual content and violence; OK to watch in an afternoon movie blitz when you don’t want to pay too much attention and still know what’s going on🍿

Light entertaining movie.

Very clean, refreshing movie. Possibly referred to as a chick flick? My teenagers didn’t enjoy it but my friends and I did for some light entertainment away from all the Left wing media news and the destruction of our rights guaranteed by our Declaration and Constitution of the United States of America. One Nation under GOD!!!

Is this a joke? No, seriously, is this a joke? This is hilariously BAD

To call this an amateur production IS AN INSULT TO THE TERM "AMATEUR" !

This isn't a movie it's a back yard production with apparently a budget of maybe $5000 for laughable props, suits they put on teenage boys pretending to be presidential staff.. , a FAKE DOG, yes.. a FAKE DOG .. bad wigs, cheap furnishings, what appears to be a plastic mantle, you know those cheap catalogs you get in the mail with plastic crap to sit around your home? well.. they decorated this set with that crap .. I think that's a wrinkled bedspread hanging on the fake window behind that presidential dining table.. I especially like the pictures on the wall that are hanging crooked..

And the poor cast, the 'actors' <----<< I use that term loosely, have they ever acted before? Bless their hearts.. i know they tried.

Then there's pathetic Stacey Dash (what's wrong hon, won't Faux Noise give you any gigs anymore?) Oh, and Corbin Bernsen playing a king who appears to be wearing a sash made out of tissue paper... I kid you not.

The props, the budget the backyard acting.. this is ridiculous.. Poor Stacey, must be missing her appearances on Faux where she can slobber over the orange guy!

This movie got made?

OMG what a disaster. I was up all night with nothing to do so I thought I'd enjoy a Princess Diaries-type movie. All I enjoyed was mocking this film.

DISAPPOINTMENT is an understatement
Verified purchase
Terrible terrible acting! The storyline, even though it had a lot of potential, was muddled and underwhelming. But I watched, hoping it would get better. Instead, it sucked from beginning to end.
I love Corbin Bernsen and Nancy Stafford. They are both good actors. But even they couldn't save this movie.
Sad to say, this movie needed lots of work before it went to screen. Huge misfire!

This was really really bad.
Verified purchase
My mom and I watched this together and we will cherish this wasted 1.5 hours because at least we were together. The fact that we were not alone in this is the only highlight of this movie. Please devote your time to anything else but this poorly written movie with a sketchy plot and absolutely no storyline.
We kept waiting for it to get better. It never did.

Missed the mark completely...
Verified purchase
It's such a shame...this movie had so much potential with the basic premise. If they had continued to actually fully make it as the parody they hinted and suggested with terrible writing and acting that was sub par at best...then perhaps they could have had a winner here. The lines were written like a lousy half hour TV sitcom which I find insulting to the intelligence of anyone who tuned in thinking they were actually going to watch a movie! I guess I had hopes of it resembling the quality and casting of say.."The Princess Diaries ". I kept thinking it would improve but instead it only got worse...what a waste of my time.

Really!!
Verified purchase
This movie really was a complete waste of time. After a few minutes I kept skipping ahead, it had to get better, right?? wrong.!! The story was stupid, the acting was awful, what were the people around the First Lady, they acted like they were in high school not the White House. This is a perfect example of a movie talking down to the audience. Don't bother.
