On June 2, 2015, Director Cameron Crowe apologized in a piece written for his blog "The Uncool" for what he described as an "odd or misguided casting choice", having Emma Stone playing a character whose father is half-Chinese and half-Hawaiian. He took full responsibility for the presentation of the character, after the film caused controversy and criticism for presenting whitewashed versions of Hawaii and its residents. See more »

There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite, every constellation, souvenirs of space walks and astronauts and rockets launched by NASA in the '60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.

I read the reviews before going to the movie, after reading reviews like "Will it end Emma Stone career?" I was expecting a total disaster. Being married, I saw a bunch of chick flick that were painful to watch (aka. The Big Wedding), and "Aloha!" is not one of them.
As a men, I was a little bored, I had a look at my watch a few times, but it is not painful to watch. I had to go see a chick flick if I want my wife to be willing to go watch people being eating alive in Jurassic World in 2 weeks.
My wife was happy, she had a great night. In fact, all the woman in the theater were having fun...by the way the theater was full. They were laughing, had a few tears at the end.
After the movie, I was watching people leaving and it was always the same scenario, 2 woman talking together totally excited (probably by Bradley Cooper) and behind there was the 2 husbands walking looking completely bored.
It's a chick flick....what do you expect?
