Storyline

Jackie Laurens (Heather Locklear) is a recently divorced, 40-year-old and mother of two pre-teen kids who takes a vacation alone to Hawaii where, against her better judgment, she meets and hooks up with a hunky, much younger resident surf instructor named Kyle Hamilton (Robert Buckley). But what began as a one-night stand turns into love as when her vacation is done, she flies to Hawaii every chance she gets to meet with her latest love interest, which soon gets disapproval from her ex-husband, her teenage kids, and even her close friends. As time and the pressure from everyone around her to break it off with Kyle pushes Jackie to her breaking point, it will only take her beau Kyle to teach her how to cope before life passes her by.

Sweet and Entertaining Romantic Comedy
7 January 2012 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

In Denver, the decorator Jackie Laurens (Heather Locklear) has divorced from her husband Daniel Laurens (Cameron Bancroft), who had cheated on her and now is living with the younger Melinda (Christy Greene). Jackie has a son, Will, and a daughter, Jessica, and she is stressed especially with a demanding client. Jackie will be forty on December, 30th, and her friend Kristine (Vanessa Williams) gives a short vacation at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel to her to celebrate her birthday. However, Kristine's mother has a health problem and Jackie travels alone to Honolulu.

Jackie meets the handsome twenty-seven year-old surf instructor Kyle Hamilton (Robert Buckley) and they have one night stand. However, they fall in love with each other and Jackie travels to Hawaii to meet Kyle whenever she can. She discloses her love affair to her close friends that do not approve her relationship with a man thirteen years younger than she. When Jessica has an accident, Jackie travels back to Denver in the first available flight and Daniel disapproves her behavior. Jackie decides to break off with Kyle, but on the Christmas Eve, Jackie has a big surprise.

First of all, congratulations to the forty-six year-old actress Heather Locklear, who convinces that she is forty with her shape and beauty. It is impressive how a woman can keep such body with forty and something years.

"Flirting with Forty" is a sweet and entertaining romantic comedy about difference of ages when the woman is older than the man. The funny joke with the Moores (Julianne and Demi) is partially dated in 2012, but love is eternal while it lasts and Jackie should stay with Kyle, no matter what other people say. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Flertando aos 40" ("Flirting with 40")
