It's summer in San Diego. Lily (Hannah Frantz) and her mother, Diane (Jacleen Haber), are on vacation from New York City while Pepin (Julian Ortiz) and his father, Jose (Agustin Castaneda), from Mexico City are also on vacation.

Maybe the worst movie ever!
18 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

The worst movie ever? At least the worst movie I can remember. The worst acting I've ever seen on a film, from every single actor. Horrible script and even worse music. Many scenes were inappropriate for children and touched on heavy themes like divorce, depression, suicide and grief, but dealt with them inadequately. So sad I'd agreed to watch this with my children, otherwise I wouldn't have watched past first 60 seconds. It was nearly comedic it was so bad. (In fact, it might be worth a watch for a minute or two to see how bad that music is!) Many times bad acting can be remedied by decent editing but this movie did not benefit from that.

Two hours of my life I'll never get back. Don't make the same mistake!
