Product Description

Teen romantic comedy starring Mandy Moore as Anna Foster, the smart and beautiful 18-year-old daughter of the President of the United States. With no escape from the media, the public - or her father's watchful eye - she is desperate to live her own life and be independent. While on a family trip to Europe, she manages to slip through the net of her security guards - and falls into the company of British heartthrob Ben (Matthew Goode). Not wanting to spoil the moment, she does not reveal her true identity to Ben - but little does she know he has a few secrets of his own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great easy going chick flick 9 Sep 2007
Chasing Liberty is unoriginal in it's plot, but is a great easy going film where you can enjoy european scenery, romance and of course looking at the absolutely gorgeous Matthew Goode.

Mandy Moore is likeable in her performance as Anna Foster (the president's daughter), but the star of the film has to be the smooth and very charming secret service agent Ben Calder (Matthew Goode)who makes Chasing Liberty a must see.

Not a complex plot but definitely well worth watching.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not amazing, but enjoyable and worthwhile. 24 July 2005
By A Customer
A scenario that has been done before ('My Date With the President's Daughter', 'First Daughter'), irritating spoilt brat Anna (played by Mandy Moore) tries to escape her controlling parents. as she flees across Europe, what she doesn't know is that she has been set up. Good-looking, intelligent charmer Ben (Matthew Goode) is an agent hired by her parents.
You may, like me, find Moore's character to be less sweet and naive and more demanding and stupid. However, despite the cliches and inaccurate stereotypes (the President amusingly claims he has to convince Europe to increase aid to poorer nations, for example), the film is pleasantly watchable.
The scenery is interesting to watch, the minor characters can be comical, but in my opinion what saves this film is the performance of Matthew Goode. He plays smooth, sophisticated Ben in a way that will attract many romantics to this film!
If you enjoyed the film, the extra features are paritcularly good, including a commentary by Moore and Goode on the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite romantic-comedies 20 Aug 2008
Finding a good romantic-comedy these days can be somewhat of a challenge despite the huge variety available. They tend to either be too romantic at the expense of the comedy, too humorous at the expense of the romance, too cheesy or worse than anything falling into the slap-stick genre. Thankfully this is not the case with Chasing Liberty, a cute, lovable romantic comdy starring Mandy Moore and Matthew Goode.

Okay the story is far from original. Mandy Moore is the daughter of the President of America, which means she cannot lead a normal life doing the things that other teenagers can do like going on dates without an army of security guards in her mist. Alas she runs away to find adventure befriending Matthew Goode in the process, how ever what she doesn't know is that Matthew has a few secrets, the main one being that he is one of her father's secret service assigned to protect her. Yes it's a tad predictable. It's easy to see where the story is going but what saves this story from falling into the scrap heap is the clever script that manages to combine witty one-liners with romantic quips.

What also sets this movie above other romantic-comedies most notably the latest 'First Daughter' is that the two leads are very likable. Personally I've always been a fan of Mandy Moore and she doesn't fail to disappoint in this movie as she plays the cute, giddy, spontaneous girl desperately searching for freedom. As the male lead Matthew Goode provides a good balance to Moore's lively personality being more reserved and hesitant but aboveall adorable as he struggles to contain his growing feelings for his boss's daughter. Obviously it helps that he's drop dead gorgeous and has an accent to die for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Harmless and fun though unoriginal 13 Jan 2007
By Mr. Stephen Kennedy TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Mandy Moore goes through the chick flick motions again, as "cute girl with romance problems". On this occasion, her obstacle to romance is the fact she is the President's daughter (Liberty being her Secret Service codename). So, at 18, on a trip to Europe, she escapes the secret service army protecting her, in order to experience real freedom. On the way, she enlists the help of a young English man Ben Calder, played by Mathew Goode. Her father secretly allows it, having decided that she needs to experience `controlled freedom', to get it out of her system. The safety net is that Ben Calder is actually a secret service agent the President has sworn to protect her, and never to reveal his identity.

It's formulaic and undemanding - but in fact hits all the right notes to achieve success in its given genre. Mandy Moore is cute, although she comes across more as spoilt kid than object of sympathy. Mathew Goode plays the role with manner, accent and appeal all directly descended from the Hugh Grant school of acting. Parallel to the main plot, is the more unlikely, but rather funny and more enjoyable building of romance between the two agents who are chasing Liberty across Europe, played by the always worth watching Jeremy Piven, and Annabella Sciorra.

The locations in Prague, Berlin, and especially Venice, make for some visual eye candy helping to maintain some interest for the non teenagers in the crowd.

Guys will no doubt find this schmaltzy, but if you have to watch a chick flick, then this one is better than many out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars a joy to watch 28 Feb 2005
A romantic comedy with plenty of both and a familiar topic: the President's daughter of America. Having been cooped up in the White House for too long and followed around incessantly by bodyguards, Anna yearns for the notorious American dream more than anyone else, and that's freedom. The liberty to go someplace without being recognised and asked for autographs and the liberty to have a first date which isn't ruined by bodyguards pouncing on your date's friend because he dared to reach into his pocket. Protesting to her father has come to no avail, thus she takes matters into her own hands and runs off during a presidential visit to Prague. With a new-found travelling companion, who is of course a dashing young fellow, Anna ventures from Prague to Venice to Berlin, with bodyguards hopelessly trying to keep up. The chase is on, but who will get caught unawares? An amiable, feel-good movie that is good for what it is, but has little scope for much else.
