"'Die Hard' in the White House" -- starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, and some exceedingly questionable special effects. When terrorists take over the White House and kidnap the President, it's up to Butler's disgraced Secret Service agent to rescue his old boss and restore America's faith in its ability to destroy the countries it disagrees with.
