Hoping for a chance to get close to her idol, Jenny takes a job in his favourite Caribbean resort with her best friend Ryan. When Jason is washed overboard in a storm, Jenny jumps in to save him and the pair find themselves stranded on a seemingly-deserted tropical island. Jenny discovers that they have landed mere miles away from the resort, but instead of telling Jason the truth she lets him believe they are stranded so she can make him fall in love with her.

Thoughts

I make no apologies for choosing to watch this clearly bad film, even the trailer made it look like a trashy piece of teen entertainment. That’s exactly what it was but here’s the thing: Amanda Bynes is really good and I love watching her running around getting into scrapes!

On top of the ridiculous concept, this is not a very well-made film. The sound levels are atrocious, the ADR very badly done, and oh my word, I haven’t seen screen wipes that awful since Star Wars. One of them was bubbles!

A really, terrible film, but I quite enjoyed watching it.

Rating: 2 / 5
