Predictable slightly stale comedy
on 8 May 2008
I'm normally a fan of the teen comedies such as this and I found the story to be rather stale, predictable, and lacking very laughs.
Amanda Bynes stars as an over-obsessed fan working at a Caribbean resort for the summer. When her favourite pop star Jason Masters arrives on the island she makes it her goal to meet him. During an evening cruise during stormy weather, her idol falls into the Ocean, and she jumps into save him.
After the storm clears, they end up on an island that is seemingly deserted, and with Jason injured, Jenny doesn't have much option but to try and fend for the both of them. However it doesn't take her long to discover that they're actually on the other side of the resort island. So convinced is Jenny that her dream will come true and Jason will fall in love with her, that she decides to withold the truth from him and spend time with him roughing it on the other side of the island.
It had potential for originality, but throw in the rival girl also after the guys affections and the cookie-cutter stereotypical male best friend who's in love with Jenny, and you've got the whole thing panned out for predictability before the movie even starts.
I was disappointed with this as the trailers had pointed it as being funny and fresh. It's neither.
