Did You Know?


The location of the party during which Owen is attacked by Benicio, is a house on Bay Boulevard in Lavallette, NJ, across the lagoon from West Point Island in Lavallette. West Point Island is also the summer home owned by none other than famed Jersey-born actor Joe Pesci. See more »


Despite claiming to take place during 4th of July weekend, and the entire summer, the film was actually shot in the Fall. This is evidenced by many of the boardwalk shops in Seaside Heights being closed, and the sheer lack of people on the Boardwalk. This is further evidenced by the amount of sand present on the boardwalk in Lavallete. For safety reasons, the boardwalk is swept daily in Lavallette, and the boardwalk pavilions are not filled with sand during the summer as they are cleaned out in the Spring. See more »

A Sweet Charmer, Start To Finish
18 February 2008 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

It's refreshing to see a small, independent movie with such a big heart, lovable characters (played by an able, attractive cast) and stunning cinematography.

Who knew the Jersey Shore had such beautiful locations? I'm so accustomed to seeing films set in The Garden State that look like a trash dump, not like some tropical paradise. The light is golden and feels almost nostalgic, like a film from another decade.

But life isn't exactly paradise for the down-on-her luck main character (Kim Shaw), who's trying to fulfill her dream of going to Columbia by working all summer and praying she gets financial aid. Her dad's dead, her car breaks down, the job and housing she had lined up both vanish, and she's forced to either admit defeat or turn that frown upside down and make the best of things. Shaw is cute as a button and you want her to succeed. She finds work as a ESL teacher for the kitchen staff at a local restaurant/boat club and gets involved with a group of bad boy drifters who she's supposed to be teaching. Later than sooner, she learns what they're up to and falls for the cutest bad boy of the bunch (David Fumero).

Coming-of-age, end-of-innocence, romantic-comedy, thriller...whatever you want to call it, it works. Kudos to the filmmakers for making such a feel-good would be great to see more indie films that show us the sunny side of life more often than focusing on just the dark clouds of human experience.
