My Review and Thoughts:
Cute movie! Great story line. There was a little left out, or cut out, or assumed I guess, when Bryce asked Madison about flying with him back to his hometown. The part of the movie where he asks her to go and pretend to be his girlfriend, was left out. It was just assumed. Then when they went to pick up their rental vehicle, she talked about his friends that he told her about. The movie is similar to a Hallmark movie, so those that love Hallmark movies, you'll love this! I'd say PG-13, to rated R, depends on your children, as there is some adult situations and two women wearing bras and underwear jumping into a swimming pool that they broke into a building to get into with Bryce and his friends. Also, a woman kisses Bryce when he's supposed to be dating Madison. Also, there's a lot of drinking in this film. Madison downs some beers with Bryce's friends. Every time they are out together some place, there's beer or cocktails. But overall, it's a great story with the ending you want!
