  • Loyalty Worthy of a Queen
    A very pleasant surprise, Guarding Tess, brings to the screen the story of a secret service agent guarding the widow of a former president and all that that entails. Could he possibly be biting more than he can chew?
    Even though the American Founding Fathers would probably not be pleased with the way their successors have been abusing their powers and with the "royal" treatment that they have been receiving (a far cry from the original humility and anti-monarchist rhetoric), one cannot stand idle and not recognize the strong bond that developed between the former first lady and her protector.
    Nicolas Cage, Shirley MacLaine, and the rest of the cast, have truly outdone themselves with their performances, which are outstanding to say the least! All the actors, without exceptions, give it their 100% and it really shows (the chemistry is AMAZING)! Very well written and very well presented, it allows for a highly entertaining movie that can be watched over and over again!
    The setting, the plot, the dialogues and the music are all wonderful!
    In short, Guarding Tess is a movie definitely worth watching, as it will surely provide for an evening's entertainment! 4 1/2 Stars

  • Great!
    Shirley McLaine is really convincing in this role as a rather difficult aging public figure, the widow of the deceased VP. Her co-star was a good match as well. I loved the movie....more info
  • Guarding Tess
    I am a big of fan of Shirley McLaine and Nicholas Cage. The movie begins and ends with comedy and drama. Nicholas plays a frustrated Secret Service agent to guard a former first lady played by McLaine and she keeps him on the run. The movie is wonderful. I highly recommend it. ...more info
  • Yes, Ma'am!
    That's the answer everyone gives Tess Carlisle (MacLaine) if they know what's good for them.

    SAIC (that's Special Agent in Charge) Doug Chesnic wants to leave Tess' detail. He's been there three years and he wants to go back to Washington where the action is. Well, and besides, Tess Carlisle is driving him nuts.

    He gets as far as the Director of the Secret Service's inner office only to be told that Mrs. Carlisle called the President and wants him back. What choice has he, but to go.

    Doug thinks he's going to be tough on her, but the battle of wills between the two of them has none other than the President mediating when Tess can't win herself.

    The film's a battle royale between two very strong-willed characters, but in the end when the chips are down, these two people take care of each other.

    "Guarding Tess" is one of those surprise films that ends so well the bickering at the front's almost erased. It's just a good watch occasionally when you need to take some stress off. ...more info
