Did You Know?


There is no tomato festival celebrated in Plugia. Instead, it is celebrated in the town of Buñol, in Spain, and it is called La Tomatina See more »


The scene after the tomato festival where Taylor and Raf go wash at the beach probably wouldn't show the sun setting on the sea. It's debatable, since the closest shoreline to their location in Apulia is 20 miles north-west, where the sun would always rise over the sea. Though if they traveled 80 miles south-west to the Gulf of Taranto they would be facing the other direction. Since the tomato festival isn't given an exact location is hard to say. See more »


Maddie: All my life I've gone from wrong guy to wrong guy and now, finally, to have found a guy who's right... who's kind and decent and... beautiful inside and out. Because... you are the right guy. But it's not right. Not for me. I came here to find myself and I found you. This is the same thing I always do: running off into the arms of a man and losing myself. Er... it's incredible to me that someone as amazing as you want to marry me. How could I not get caught up in that? The big church wedding, ...

Semi-enjoyable summer flick

The familiar story of a British girl going on a holiday in the Mediterranean and getting involved with a local boy. Once the summer's over so is the romance.

Three years later her sister is to marry that boy, so what is she to do?

The story unfolds in the background of beautiful seaside, nice old buildings and of course lots of songs from the 1980's. One needs not read too much into the story as there are few issues, especially with the ease which the main characters use the word 'love' as well as the speed at which they are prepared to marry...or not!

Ultimately, this is nothing more than a summer flick and will provide for a fairly pleasant 90 minutes.
