First things first - if you haven't watched the trailer for this film
yet, I suggest you don't. Unfortunately, if you have seen the trailer,
you've also seen most of the film, because it doesn't offer a great
deal more.

Personally, I had seen the trailer before seeing this, so I had a
general idea of what to expect - and the film pretty much delivered on
that. The whole film has a light feel, and being generally predictable
throughout, you're never really in any doubt about the final outcome
of... well, everything.

With that said, it's still an enjoyable way to spend some time, and is
perfect for being not-too-long. Some of the dialogue between the actors
is very forced and wooden, but the performances were generally sound,
if nothing special. Sarah Roemer was strong as the leading lady/love
interest, and her parents were excellent the few times they were on the
screen. Joseph Cross was mediocre as the main character, with his
emotional scenes unemotional at best, and I think that another actor
might have been able to show a bit more chemistry with a good looking

In all, if you happen to come across this film or are a particular fan
of any of the actors, it's worthwhile giving it a watch. Otherwise,
don't feel that you're missing out on anything that amazing -
especially if you've seen the trailer.

6/10 :)
