Twin Films: Movies With Basically The Same Plot Released In The Same Year
Chasing Liberty | First Daughter — 2004
Chasing Liberty Box Office: $12,195,626
First Daughter Box Office: $9,055,921
Neither of these films was a huge hit out the gate, but they had respectable audiences for an early-’00s chick flick! They also both starred It-girls from the early aughts: Mandy Moore in Chasing Liberty and Katie Holmes in First Daughter. Both films are about the same exact thing: a rebellious First Daughter who is tired of their strict, overbearing President father. The only real difference is the type of rebellion! Moore’s character takes a sabbatical from her life in Europe but Holmes’s heads to college for a bit of free-spirited fun. But guess what? They both fall for boys with ~ secrets ~ — actually the same secret in both movies! The plot wasn’t even original for that year, considering the Disney Channel Original Movie My Date With the President’s Daughter did first daughter rebellion right the first time!
