Rating: C -- We have seen it before: The movie throws together two individuals (Shirley Maclaine and Nicolas Cage) who could not have been more different and then shows us how they learn to respect each other. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Competently executed and entertaining, chiefly due to the first-rate performances of stars Cage and MacLaine. Full Review

Mr. Cage, once again sounding mock-suave and Elvisy, makes the most of his character's fragile cool.

Straightforward but enjoyable comedy that sees Cage and MacLaine going at it hammer and tongs -- although not in that sense. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- There are a few good jokes, some solid chemistry between the leads, and a little pathos, but it all doesn't add up to very much. Full Review

Product Description:

A sad-sack Secret Service agent is assigned to protect a feisty former First Lady in this comic look at an oddball relationship. If they weren't so busy fighting with each other, they might just be friends.

Plot Synopsis:

Tess Carlisle is the widow of a former United States President. A quarrelsome older woman, she's known for her belligerent manner and her blatant disregard for protocol. For Doug Chesnic, the Secret Service agent assigned to the widow, standing watch over the cantankerous old lady is more than he can tolerate. After three long years as her bodyguard, Doug finally gets a new assignment. But before he's had the chance to celebrate, Tess has him brought back to her Ohio home for yet another go at being her bodyguard. Tess and Doug may be like oil and water together, but they'll soon realize that they've needed each other all along.
