Television director Andy Cadiff turns toward feature films to direct the romantic comedy Chasing Liberty, which appears to be loosely based on the 1953 Audrey Hepburn classic Roman Holiday. Mandy Moore stars as Anna Foster, the 18-year-old daughter of President of the United States James Foster (Mark Harmon).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Forgettable fluff but it left me in an unaccountably bad mood, mainly because it's a step back for Mandy Moore."
‑ Charles Taylor,
"Chasing Liberty will probably win over as many fuddy-duddy fathers as fillies with its mixture of sweetness tempered with genial cynicism."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Middle school girls only need apply."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Mandy Moore is a cute girl, but she's not quite reaching the level she needs to as an actor."
‑ Kevin Carr, Film Threat
"Mandy Moore's best movie so far, which, I realize, doesn't say much. The movie has its charm, but not enough to sustain its length."
‑ Collin Souter,
"Moore's lip-glossed petulance never catches fire with Goode's canned drollery."
‑ Laura Sinagra, Village Voice
"An endless, virtually laugh-free pastiche of Aaron Sorkin by way of Aaron Spelling."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Bastou um pouco de ambição para que este simpático representante do gênero 'água-com-açúcar' deixasse o similar (e ruim) A Filha do Presidente a anos-luz de distância."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"What sad times we live in when a contemporary knockoff of Roman Holiday stars, in the place of the immortal Audrey Hepburn... Mandy Moore."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Feels slapped together and unfocused."
‑ Kelly Borgeson, Premiere Magazine
"It's one TV-movie romp that Kristy McNichol never got around to starring in."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Chasing Liberty is strictly vanilla-flavoured, status quo entertainment."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Chasing Liberty just isn't worth the effort."
‑ Austin O'Connor, Lowell Sun
"The attempts at humor make a viewer long for the comedy and romance of Freddy vs. Jason."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"The winter doldrums always are cursed by what I call "January Junk.""
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
