Lily (Hannah Frantz) and her mother, Diane (Jacleen Haber), are on vacation from New York City while Pepin (Julian Ortiz) and his father, Jose (Agustin Castaneda), from Mexico City are also on vacation. The kids meet at the beach and quickly discover they have a lot in common with each other even if they are from different places.

Pretty decent flick (if you like similar story lines)
6 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just by looking at the poster,I could figure out what this movie was going to be like and about.I mean this in no disrespect to the writers and everything,but it is a predictable plot.You have your humor,drama,and other cliché movie themes.I mean:two kids with single parents meet,become friends,do the math.But one thing's different from others:they befriend a cop and not some thug. This isn't an awful movie,but it's also not a masterpiece.I guess you would want to watch it as a family who's easily amused.I believe it is ABC Family material though. If you're expecting to be blown away by cinematic genius,please look somewhere else.Some (if not most) indie movies are great,but this another independent film who found the prettiest child actors they could find,and a washed up actor(Valente Rodriguez)who couldn't find work anywhere else. But if you want a family friendly movie,here you go.
