Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Great Lead Actress & Strong Moments throughout – Overall, the story is just okay
14 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The lead actress (Kim Shaw) in this movie is fantastic. She is a sweet character who has vulnerability and strength. The setting of this film on the Jersey shore at resort/restaurant gives a feel to it like "Dirty Dancing." The cast is rounded out with other memorable characters – Paul Sorvino for example, as well as the manager at the restaurant (good comic relief!)

There are really nice moments throughout this film and the build-up of the movie's romance is good. Mid-way through the film though, it starts to lag. It feels like the stakes could be higher – either on the romance-end or in the conflict that is felt between the workers and the rich "frat boys" or in the main character's grief over the loss of her father (which gets lost in the story). It's lacking that "compelling something" to pull me into the next scene and next. I needed something more to make me feel like I NEED to know what is coming next.

It is worth noting that the movie finishes on a strong note with a "showdown" of sorts.

The locations, directing, acting, and cinematography are all strong. The story could have been stronger. Cutting out some of the middle scenes and/or trimming them down would speed up the pacing and improve this movie in my opinion.

I feel like this movie is a 6, or maybe a 7 out of 10. Since it is an indie film, I rounded up to a 7 (since it is hard to make a good movie with less money). If you like romances that aren't formulaic romantic-comedies, this is a nice coming-of-age one.
