Sinbad plays wisecracking Secret Service agent Sam Simms, assigned to protect the President's rebellious 14-year-old son Luke (Brock Pierce). Simms would much rather be protecting the President, and Luke would prefer to be just a regular kid without a watchdog trailing him everywhere he goes. But a genuine friendship develops between the two when Simms volunteers to teach Luke how to deal with a school bully (Zachery Ty Bryan), and to untie his tongue so that he can win over a cute girl in class. But when Luke's mysterious Internet buddy convinces him to ditch his bodyguard in a crowded mall, the fun and games suddenly become a matter of life and death!

Unfunny Disney comedy. Sinbad needs a better vehicle.

Goofy '90s comedy with pratfalls and some gunplay.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this Sinbad vehicle about the growing pains of the president's son is filled with comedic pratfalls. We get a brief glimpse of bare bottom when the "First Son" moons the press corps as a prank. There is some bullying, and the idea that learning to box will fix that problem. There is a sublot involving an online stalker, but this topic is dealt with less in a substantive way and more as tools to advance the story, but the fact that they are in the film does offer families the chance to discuss these issues in more constructive ways.
