A residence on Balboa holiday island gets rented to two families, who meet while fighting for first spot on the ferry. Restaurant chef Matthew 'Matt' Farragher work long hours, but is such fun when at home that cheerful son Lewis and nagging daughter Daphne still love him to death. German genetics researcher Dr. Julia Weiland raised her sons from an American father, adolescent Thomas and preteen Max, well-behaved but boring. Her lab partner and fiancée Russel's true passion is GM vegetables. All the boys bond naturally, despite Julia's over-protective objections. Matt coaches Thomas on his love-life and Lewis teaches Max sailing. Bridging the gorge between the parents will take much more - what will some drama do for them all? Written by KGF Vissers

Delightful Romantic Comedy
7 May 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The divorced American chef Matthew "Matt" Farragher (Timothy Dalton) takes two week vacation to spend with his son Lewis (Billy Kay) and his daughter Daphne Farragher (Natalie Elizabeth Marston) in the Balboa Island, in Panama. The German researcher of the genetically modified vegetables Dr. Julia Weiland (Nastassja Kinski) is also taking vacation in Balboa with her sons Thomas (Kevin Zegers) and Max (Cameron Finley) and her boring fiancé Russell (Geoffrey Lower). Matt gives freedom to his children and has fun with them while the uptight Julia raises her sons with rigid discipline. While driving to the ferry to the island, Matt and Julia have an argument. Soon they learn that they both rented the same house by the sea due to a mistake of the real estate. Further, the hotels and island are completely booked and they need to share the house. However, along the days their initial animosity begins to change while their children get along with each other very well. But Russell wants to marry Julia and Matt's girlfriend Felice (Carlton Elizabeth Gebia) wants to go one step ahead in their relationship.

"Time Share" a.k.a. "Bitter Suite", is a delightful romantic comedy with many funny situations. The chemistry between the gorgeous Nastassja Kinski and the handsome Timothy Dalton is perfect and makes the film a perfect entertainment with well balanced comedy and romance. The teenagers and children have also great participation in the story and this film is indeed worthwhile watching even for the third time. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Encontro às Avessas" ("Topsy Turvy Encounter")
