Storyline

CEO Harrison Stewart treats his family to a holiday on the Bahamas in a Mayan theme luxury resort, with his devoted workaholic executive Ziggy Grayson and his brilliant but shy son Griffen, who is secretly smitten with Alex Stewart. Hearing she has a crush on simpleton beach hunk Chad, Griffen sweetly accepts to be his Cyrano, which actually ends up proving their incompatibility. Meanwhile her twin sister Madison enjoys an affair with sea-life keeper Jordan Landers, but spoiled silver spoon Brianna wants him too and sabotages them. When Jordan is blamed for allegedly fencing stolen antiquities, Griffen and the twins dodge their meanwhile suspicious parents to find and expose the real culprit. Written by KGF Vissers

Quite possibly the worst movie ever made.
9 August 2002 | by (Texas, United States) – See all my reviews

Flipping through the channels a couple months ago, I noticed Holiday in The Sun, the newest Olsen Twins movie. Having not seen one since they were much younger, I was a bit curious. What was curiosity soon turned into utter fascination- at how this movie was ever made.

Sure, younger viewers will eat this up, but even a pre-teen should realize what a pitiful movie this is. The twins, in fact, are the best actors featured, which isn't saying much at all. Cliched to the max, the plot mundane and utterly implausible, I was left stunned, and even amused. The camera jerks away from whoever is talking, as I guess the director needed something to keep people awake while watching this train wreck. At times the film switches to black and white, which is supposed to achieve a certain artistic effect, I suppose. Unfortunately, all they've done is switch on "black and white"; these people need to watch "The Man Who Wasn't There" to appreciate what art can go into b & w.
