Mandy Moore is back and this time, she's brought along a new British hottie to act with in her teen romance movie, Chasing Liberty.

Chasing Liberty - Presidential Tale

Mandy Moore plays Anna Foster, the only child of the President of the United States. She's 18 years old and spent her whole life being tailed by anywhere from two to 22 Secret Service agents. This kinda thing does not make for a great teen social life. Then, Anna and the family head to Europe for some Presidential business, and Anna decides to skip-out and be alone for the first time, ever. Only, she's not alone, she's got this hottie English dude with her - and he's not exactly who he seems.

Chasing Liberty - Fun Fest

Chasing Liberty is a pretty fun movie. You really want Anna to find a little freedom and fun. Matthew Goode, who plays her new friend Ben Caulder, is just amazing. Goode is funny, way-cute and there's total chemistry between him and Mandy Moore. The scenery in Europe makes the whole flick very pretty. The side-story - a love thang between two of Anna's Secret Service agents - adds to the flick's goofy goodness.

Chasing Liberty - Yawn Fest Although the chemistry was definitely there between Mandy Moore and Matthew Goode, the storyline crawled along at some points. There was too much random walking through Europe and not enough Canal rides and bungee jumps. Another annoying fact was Anna's taste in outfits - you'd think the President's daughter could come up with something better than baggy, unflattering capri jeans and flat, white '80s sandals. The climax of the movie kinda ruined Anna's strong character. She went from being a strong, independent girl to a damsel in distress quicker than you can say "White House."

Chasing Liberty - DVD Features

Recieve a guided tour through Europe from Mandy Moore and Matthew Goode, on the Chasing Liberty DVD. They'll show you all the best spots to check out in some of Europe's most beautiful cities, like Venice and Prague. There are bloopers and deleted scenes and best of all, commentary by Mandy and Matthew. You will also get to check out The Roots concert that Mandy's character goes to in the movie, as an added bonus. This DVD definitely delivers the goods!
Chasing Liberty - The Bottom Line
Unfortunately, Chasing Liberty isn't one of Mandy's masterpieces. However, newbie Matthew Goode and some fun European adventures, make it worth the checking out.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
