Storyline

In The Perfect Summer, fatherless teenager Jake (Adam Horner) is happy living in Chicago, until his mother (Sydney Penny) decides to uproot them to a small surfing town where her estranged father (Eric Roberts), Jake's grandfather, lives. The transition isn't easy for anyone and it seems everywhere he goes, Jake manages to make enemies, including the town bully, Tyler (JD Banks), who doesn't like the new interloper or his interest in young surfing prodigy, Kayla (Katie Garfield). Stuck in the beach town with no friends and no knowledge of surfing, Jake has nowhere to turn until Cody (Jason Castro), the local surf shop owner, reveals that Jake's grandfather is a surf legend. Tired of feeling like an outcast, Jake asks Lou to teach him about surfing. Jake learns to face his fears, push through inhibitions and realizes that winning the respect of his new peers - and Katie's heart - might mean facing the biggest challenge of his life.

Trivia

Adam Horner was apparently hard to work with on set. It was told that at times he refused to put on an American accent because he found it difficult, refusal to learn lines and instead wanted to have cue cards to read off, and was often late or didn't show up at all to set. See more »

Hunk of smelly dog poo
6 January 2014 | by riellylaneSee all my reviews

This was literally the worst movie I have ever had the displeasure of enduring in my life. I don't know how much acid Gary Wheeler took before scribbling random words on a page which ultimately led to this cornucopia of typical corniness, inaccurate surfing references, horrible dialogue and overall predictable clichés, but it must've been a lot. I feel as though it would've been better if in the end everyone was killed by a freak accident of some sort, because it would be the only part of the film that wasn't a predictable piece of elephant faeces.

Do not make the mistake of watching/purchasing this film. It is absolutely beyond my comprehension how this film is rated as high as a 7.4, 2 girls 1 cup is better than this, and there's less poo involved.

Wheeler needs his head read.

Good day.

P.S. This movie was so bad it made me right a review.
