Storyline

Workaholic Mike grudgingly minds the kids while his wife, legal assistant Emma Burke, flies to Hawai with ashes of Lily, the native who raised her and came to Boston with her. On the minor Hawaian island, Emma finally gets acquainted (again) with her family, and decides to stay, also to help with their flower nursery's legal problems. She also learns her biological mother is alive and well on the island, but refuses to talk to her now and starts an ill-considered affair with handsome cousin Kala. Mike flies in with the two children, complicating everything further. Written by KGF Vissers

Tempted but fizzles
10 March 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

There are several beautiful things about this movie. The beautiful scenery of Hawaii or Maui, whatever, and the looks of Jason Mamoa. Both worth watching. Mamoa is fetching in his scenes without his shirt, running along the beach. Quite a fantasy. Or in the deep blue waters of the cave. However not too much else happens in this older married woman and younger lover theme. Virginia Madsen, that Sharon Stone wannabe, is just awful, in this. No chemistry, not even sexual for the young man. In fact their love scenes fell flat. Too controlled. Lainie Kazan doesn't sing a note in this. Too bad. She's a super singer lady and plays a grandmother on the island. For a Jewish mama she seemed to play the role all right. But, I'd rather hear Lainie sing a torch song. However, there is the beauty and distinguished Vietnamese actress Kieu Chinh in the film. She brings simplicity and class to this picture. So 3 stars for Hawaii, Kieu and Mamoa.
