About this Article

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.
