A great romantic comedy, 14 February 2010
Author: Gordon-11 from Earth

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.
