Television director Andy Cadiff turns toward feature films to direct the romantic comedy Chasing Liberty, which appears to be loosely based on the 1953 Audrey Hepburn classic Roman Holiday. Mandy Moore stars as Anna Foster, the 18-year-old daughter of President of the United States James Foster (Mark Harmon). Anna has led quite a privileged life, but she has grown to resist the constant presence of Secret Service agents getting in the way of her independence. While on a family trip to Europe, Anna manages to get away from security for a brief time. She inevitably falls into the romantic arms of British boy Ben Calder (Matthew Goode), with whom she enjoys a fresh and clean European vacation. Not wanting to ruin her fun, she doesn't tell him about her upper-class social status. But, alas, Ben surprises her with a secret identity of his own. Jeremy Piven and Annabella Sciorra play two Secret Service agents. Caroline Goodall plays the wise, conventional First Lady. — Andrea LeVasseur

Notes
Goofs: 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 (more)

Quotes:
Michelle Foster: Never ask a President to promise anything.
Anna Foster: I'm not. I'm asking my dad.
