Luke Davenport is the thirteen-year-old son of Paul Davenport, the President of the United States, and first lady Linda Davenport. Ill tempered Agent Woods is the secret service agent in charge of Luke. Woods is fired after mistreating Luke in front of the press. Woods is then replaced by former boxer Sam Simms, who won a boxing title in 1977. Sam is eager to take the job - even though no one else wants it. Everyone thinks that Luke is just a brat when the only thing Luke wants is to just fit in and be like every other kid at his school, the Georgetown Academy. Sam almost gets fired when Luke gets decked at school by school bully Rob MacArthur. This is when Sam decides to use his boxing expertise to teach Luke how to fight. Luke has his eyes on class-mate Katie Warren, but so does Rob. Katie agrees to go with Luke to an upcoming school dance, so Sam teaches Luke how to dance. Rob is also at the dance, but this time when Rob tries to deck Luke, Luke turns the tables and decks Rob. Sam ...Written by

The dance scene was shot at Harry F Byrd Middle School in Richmond for the senators' logo on the gym walls and floor. See more »

1m 31s were cut when the film was originally rated due to the hostage attack in the shopping mall. The BBFC felt that this and the sudden onslaught of violence were too heavy for 'PG'. In 2002, all cuts were waived for a 'PG' rating. See more »
I thought I'd stumbled upon another cheesy movie. But no, this is one of the good ones. As a matter of fact, I'm surprised why it's getting such a low rating.
Sam Simms (Sinbad) is hired to be the personal Secret Service agent of the President's son Luke Davenport (Brock Pierce), after the current agent got fired. No wonder, too, because Luke is a pain in the neck who pulls all kinds of stunts and practical jokes - for fun or for attention? You'll find out.
Sinbad and Brock Pierce work wonderfully together, and the scenes with the two of them are good. The scenes with them and Dash (Blake Boyd) are even better. I must say that I particularly liked Dash's (however brief) dancing outside the school hall - seem familiar? Oh, yes.
They could have left out the kidnapping plot, but it does make for an interesting addition.
A great movie. Worth the rental.
