In roland emmerich's action thriller "white house down," we have a cop with marital problems (and a dirty, sleeveless undershirt) fighting to save a girl from apparent terrorists who've taken control of a massive building while beethoven plays. if this sounds familiar, you've probably seen the original "die hard" as screenwriter james vanderbilt apparently did before writing this script.
