Storyline

A world unlike any you've ever known! Matt Spencer, a workaholic attorney and single father, is struggling to raise his three rebellious teenagers in the wake of his wife walking out on him. Chris Spencer, Matt's eldest son, is a handsome, over-achieving, straight-laced 18-year-old who is angry with his father about the divorce, even though his mother is the one who left. Daughter Claudia is a typical 16-year-old mall rat with too much time on her hands and the good looks that usually spell trouble. Youngest son Adam is a hip 13-year-old with a big mouth and a smart-alec attitude to go along with it. In an attempt to bring his family together again, Matt charters a sailboat for a 10-day surprise cruise to the Bahamas. The kids, selfishly un-excited about the trip, try to talk their father out of it, but he is steadfast in his determination to spend some quality family time together. Upon landing in Florida, the Spencers arrive at the dock to board the Wind Dancer, a beautiful 90-foot ... Written by Brendan Hill

yes, pretty damn awful
31 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was IN this movie--I have got the last line as the tourist--and agree it's pretty weak. It's not even on DVD. BUT just like your unfortunate-looking baby, it's got a warm spot in my heart. Basically it was made as a low-budget flick, $3 million, for Starz-Encore and they certainly got their money's worth as it's played a ton of times on Sci-Fi Channel and of course Starz-Encore. Filmed entirely on Oahu in the fall of 1996. The last scene of "Stonehenge" had some pillars of "stone" that were actually moving with the wind when we filmed! The lack of chemistry between the leading lady and man is laughable. I have not seen any of the leads in anything since.
