Chasing Liberty

Anna (played by Moore) is the teenage daughter of the US President. It is difficult for her to find a relationship amongst all the security. On a trip to Prague with her parents, she runs off for a bit of unsupervised fun. But her father ensures that her adventure is actually not unsupervised and assigns a very young, suave CIA agent to accompany her. During their trip they develop feelings for each other, until Anna finds out that Ben is actually working for her dad.

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of Mandy Moore – see both attempts at acting in Swinging with the Finkels and Love, Wedding, Marriage.  This film from 2004 adds a third to her trifecta. I suppose it didn’t help that the script was slow and frustrating and the bit part acting wasn’t up to par.

Moore’s character kept going on and on about not having any freedom (what can you expect!!!) – spoilt brat. AND I’ve backpacked around Europe a few times and guess what – you can’t do it without a passport or any money! Junk junk junk. Mandy Moore has just won top spot as the worst rom com female lead ever.
