Storyline

Attorney Tanya McQueen has hired a team of anthropologists to find an ancient artifact which, if found, would halt development of Nick Button's shopping mall in the sacred Hemolele Forest on Kaua'i. The team is led by the experienced duo of Helen and Demetri, joined by grad students Zander and Hermione. The team is seen by Omaka, a native Hawaiian kahuna, and his mischievous aide, Puka. Sensing Helen's yearning for passion from Demetri, Puka doses the man with the nectar of a special flower from the forest -- but he has dosed Zander instead, triggering confusion and hilarity. When Puka tries to make amends by dosing Demetri too, and later Tanya as well, the results are surprising and wonderfully zany. Love wins the day. Written by Roy Tjioe

Entertaining
1 January 2020 | by fandomfataleSee all my reviews

This is a surprisingly entertaining movie. Romantic comedies are my favorite genre but I'm picky - I like ones that either execute the formula perfectly or are very different, and this falls into the latter category. I was just going to skim it for the Zander/Hermione romance which seemed from the trailer like it would appeal to me, and I ended up watching the whole movie. There's a third romance that's not on the cover or in the trailer, so the movie really doesn't have a lot of filler, it's all love story. Jam-packed. I think it's probably now one of my favorite versions of A Midsummer Night's Dream, though it follows it only loosely, and only part of the story.

I definitely wouldn't recommend this for everyone, of course it's silly sometimes and the script is only OK, but if you're the sort of picky romance junkie that I am then this will be worth your time.
