Storyline

Jackie Laurens (Heather Locklear) is a recently divorced, 40-year-old and mother of two pre-teen kids who takes a vacation alone to Hawaii where, against her better judgment, she meets and hooks up with a hunky, much younger resident surf instructor named Kyle Hamilton (Robert Buckley). But what began as a one-night stand turns into love as when her vacation is done, she flies to Hawaii every chance she gets to meet with her latest love interest, which soon gets disapproval from her ex-husband, her teenage kids, and even her close friends. As time and the pressure from everyone around her to break it off with Kyle pushes Jackie to her breaking point, it will only take her beau Kyle to teach her how to cope before life passes her by.

A great romantic comedy
14 February 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a separated woman who is approaching forty years old, finding a renewed surge of excitement in her love life while vacationing in Hawaii.

"Flirting With Forty" may have a predictable plot, but it is well executed from beginning to end. The female lead, Heather Locklear, is convincing as a woman who needs a relationship after a failed marriage. The male lead, Robert Buckley, is very good looking and charming. He is also convincing as a bright and cheerful surfer who knows how to enjoy life. The ups and downs of their relationship are portrayed well, especially the up parts. The scenery is amazing, and production is good too. In short, "Flirting With Forty" is a great romantic comedy that deserves more attention.
