Doug Chesnic (Cage) is a Secret Service agent who has completed his assignment to protect the widow of the former U.S. President, Tess Carlisle (MacLaine). He's looking forward to a new job, but the demanding and sarcastic former First Lady requests he be given a permanent detail to handle her security because "she likes him." So he is given no choice but to accompany her back to her farmhouse in rural Ohio, where she makes life hell for him and the rest of the staff with her capricious and stubborn ways. Doug's skills come into play, however, when her driver, his sister, and the sister's husband kidnap Tess for a ransom of $15 million. This is a reasonably pleasant 1994 film that never really establishes an identity or mission, though some of the byplay between the two protagonists is diverting.
