  • In this frothy beach movie, they make pop-music lite together but create an utterly unconvincing romantic couple, seeming more like siblings or best friends. From Ruben to Clay might work better. show more

  • More than awful, more than dreadful, and easily the worst beach movie ever made. show more

  • A feather-light musical rushed into production to capitalize on American Idol-frenzy, is nothing more than an excuse to give the two leads several musical numbers, a la those Frankie Avalon-Annette Funicello "Beach Blanket Bingo" movies, and with just about the same amount of substance, too. show more

    It was good, if you were living in the 1960's, 70's, or 80's because of the story line. Thought the rapper dude was hot!
