I really enjoyed this cute, light-hearted romantic comedy despite some of the negative reviews I had been reading. I'd reluctantly joined a friend and really wasn't expecting much, but surprisingly found Aloha to be very entertaining, heartwarming and fun. Perhaps it didn't have the most complex plot, but both of us thought it was a great story about relationships, past hurts, and love - bringing lots of laughter and some twists and tears in the end. I found that the mix of characters worked very well together and they really grew on me as the movie progressed. The Hawaiian scenes and music brought back some fond memories of days spent on the Islands. Loved the mix of cast and characters and would definitely recommend this story for a fun, light, summer flick!
