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

Jason Momoa made the movie worthwhile. *g*
23 November 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Okay, for starters, why did they cast old-ass Virginia Madsen to play alongside the young hottie that is Jason Momoa?! That was too unbelievable from the get-go. Jason made the movie watchable and he was just so damn cute and sweet, making me drool everywhere while watching him flex the nice pecks that he carries around. *g*

He looked too young for her from the start, and he's just a baby himself, so why did they cast him with a fifteen-year old son?! No way! That never worked, but he played it off really good. He made his character into a mature looking man, pulling off the age differences well, and making the plot exceptional.
