In a dreary Florida beach resort village, luscious-limbed lifeguard Raymond is the main attraction for girls. Teenage buddies Claire and Hailey become experts on him by observation, but never dare actually approach him, and after this closing summer season will be separated as one's parents move to Australia. Then they find a storm washes up a sassy mermaid in a swimming pool, who promises them a wish if they help her prove to Neptune love exists, and Raymond is the only creature resembling a love-god.Written by

[about wearing starfish for earrings]
They literally give me compliments - in my ear. They talk to me. Starfish are notorious suck-ups. They love to give compliments. But it's nice when you need a little boost.

Two teenage boy crazy best friends discover and befriend a mermaid
I wanted to hate this movie. Everything from the constant squealing of "Oh My God", the stream of clichés and the sheer ridiculousness of some of the dialouge pointed in the direction of a complete waste of time. Somehow however, Aquamarine managed to win me over through charm and its child like determination to please. The movie centers around two teenage girls (Emma Roberts and JoJo) who are spending their last summer together before Hayley (Jojo) moves away to Austrailia. Their summer takes a surprising twist when they discover a mermaid (Sara Paxton) in a pool after a terrible storm. They spend the rest of the summer trying to help her find true love. Both Emma Roberts and Jojo are newcomers to the screen and do a surprisingly good job at playing bubbly girls without making the audience want to wring their necks 10 minutes in and though each have yet to develop their skills especially at showing a wide range of emotions, they certainly are charming and enjoyable to watch. Sara Paxton looks and talks the part and though this role wasn't one to exhibit any real acting abilities she embraces the part full on. Yes, Aqaumarine features a mean blonde girl and yes there is the "hot" guy but if you watch this movie for exactly what it is, a fluffy escape from life, then it shouldn't bother you. So if you are ever in the mood, wait until it comes out on video and don't pay 10 dollars on it, it is definitely a rental.
