Torn between honoring family obligations and the lure of quick cash, the locals greet the outsiders with a wildly mixed reception. Marly Temple is eager to give in and sell the family business to start over her life. As caretaker of her father's motel and cafe, she has grown resentful of missed opportunities.

Reluctantly returning home, she finds her strong willed mother unwilling to let go of the past.Written by

The song "Skeeter Pie" in the closing credits was written as a backup if they had been unable to get rights to the Lynyrd Skynyrd song in the trailer park scene. See more »
Early in the film when Francine is talking with one of the developers, they pass a sign in the foreground that says "Amelia Island", the filming location, instead of the film's fictional location, Plantation Island. See more »
This could have been a great film. It could have been a great character study. Instead it tries to handle too many characters and subplots and not really delving into any one too deeply. In the end I really didn't care about any of the characters because I didn't really know any of them that well.
The writing was good. It would have been better to write about just a few of the characters rather than to try and write about the entire population of Florida.
Production values were excellant.
Most of the actors were good.
Bottom line: Only go to see this movie if you don't have anything else planned.
