Our Score
Grease director Randal Kleiser targets the female pre-teen market with this inane wish-fulfilment fantasy. A slight and predictable vehicle for She's the Man star Amanda Bynes, it follows the comic deception that unfolds when smitten teen Jenny ends up shipwrecked with her rock idol, Jason Masters (Chris Carmack). But after discovering they're actually only a short distance away from their holiday resort, Jenny decides to keep quiet, hoping the singer will fall for her if they're left alone together. The clichés come thick and fast, with no stone left unturned in the ruthless quest for quick laughs. Yet although there's a degree of slapstick amusement in watching bikini-clad Bynes trick the one-note hunk, the joke rapidly wears thin. Consequently, while under-13s probably won't see past the mischievously cheesy dialogue and frothy pop soundtrack, anybody older should look elsewhere for their fun.

Summary

A teenager working at a tropical resort is overjoyed to learn her favourite rock star is soon to be a guest. When the singer falls overboard on the way over, she swims out to save him and convinces him they are stranded alone together on a desert island - even though it is only a short walk from the hotel. Romantic comedy, with Amanda Bynes and Chris Carmack.
