Plumm Summer is nice !
20 June 2009 | by ichocolatSee all my reviews

My, oh my, never am I so pleasantly surprised to watch this movie! The title is unassuming, and because there is lack of publicity about this movie in my country (it wasn't shown in the local cinemas), I thought this is one of those straight to DVDs which usually meant that the movie is not good.

My, oh my, this movie rocks! Based on true story, the Elliot brothers helped the FBI to capture the person who did the frognapping. Funny moments ensued as the brothers, and the inefficient FBIs worked their way to nab the suspect.

Both the Elliot brothers, and the girl who plays as the new girl in town are very real. They have the chemistry that one might think that they are already in the industry for a long time.

The performance of Elliot and her small brother are wonderful, they quarrel and made remarks with each other, but when others disturbed one of them, the other stand up and defended.

This movie is for everyone, young and old. It has tonnes of moral values and it is has that feel-good factor that many films churned out of Hollywood seems to lack.

In a nutshell, I recommend this movie anytime. Just sit back, relax, and have some chips with it.
