Trivia

On June 2, 2015, Director Cameron Crowe apologized in a piece written for his blog "The Uncool" for what he described as an "odd or misguided casting choice", having Emma Stone playing a character whose father is half-Chinese and half-Hawaiian. He took full responsibility for the presentation of the character, after the film caused controversy and criticism for presenting whitewashed versions of Hawaii and its residents. See more »

Goofs

USAF personnel are shown outdoors in uniform but not wearing hats. Regulations require all service personnel to wear headgear ("covers") outdoors, which must be removed when indoors. However, when USAF personnel are located on the flightline (aircraft operations area), the wear of headgear is strictly prohibited as they could easily be ingested into aircraft intakes causing major damage to engines and other mechanics. In addition, base commanders have the authority to declare a "no hat/no salute" parameter for celebrations/receptions on the flightline even if nearby aircraft are stationary and powered down.

Forget everything you think you know about this movie and just watch it!
28 May 2017 | by (Olympic Peninsula) – See all my reviews

I'm not entirely sure what got this film deep-sixed but ignore everything you've read about it and watch it! It's very good....great performances and cast, good script, Hawaii, Emma Stone and "Bumpy". It never drags and the story has a tidy little twist at the end that is very satisfying. Much, much better than the nay-sayers convoluted, misguided attempts to sound smart and politically correct at the expense of what's actually on the screen.
