Looking to earn money for college, Jenny gets a summer job at a Caribbean resort with her best friend Ryan (Jonathan Bennett). Unfortunately, her nemesis Alexis (Jamie-Lynn DiScala) also shows up.
The trio hasn't been there long before Jason shows up for a couple days off in the middle of his current tour. Naturally, Jenny is ecstatic and does anything she can to catch his eye, including slip aboard the night cruise that Jason is taking. When Jason accidentally falls overboard, Jenny dives in and saves him. The two wind up stranded on an island. Jenny immediately realizes this is her chance, and she intends to make the most of it, going to any lengths necessary to win her man.
Okay, I'll fess up. I enjoy Amanda Bynes. So I decided to give this made for TV movie a try. Amanda is great in it. The part of Jenny was written for her. The rest of the cast is fine, but Amanda is the standout.
Unfortunately, the plot needed some work. There were some twists in the final third that really came out of nowhere and made little to no sense.
On the whole, this is a light and fluffy way to waste a couple hours. I recommend viewing it before you buy since it's probably not something you'll want to watch more then once.
Watch it with the gang for everyone to have fun.
Its great entertainment watching the leagths Amanda Bynes goes to to keep him from finding out their only 2 miles from the hotel.
The extras are lacking on this dvd.
I think standard extras on all dvd releases should be min blooper reel and deleted scenes.
This movie was orignal set to be released in theaters in 2005 with a
The distribution to theaters fell apart for some reason.
Then in 2007 it was recut to pg and released as a tv movie.
(USA abcfamily) It also aired on tv in Germany still pg ver
The pg 13 ver has never been released and is not avalable anywhere at the moment.
Ten minutes of scenes were cut for the pg 13 ver.
After saving him from drowning and pulling him to safety, Jenny finds a way to convince Jason that they are trapped on an island, all alone.(hoping that their relationship will progresses) One problem, he doesn't know they are just on the other end of the island, with only a small forest inbetween them and his freedom! Will Jenny's beautiful best friend Ryan(Jonathan Bennet) help hide her secret, even though he's been in love with her since he can remember?(Of course he will, they always do...)
It isn't the deepest, or most inventive plot line, but Amanda Bynes carries the average film nearly single-handedly, that is enjoyable even after multiple viewings.
The soundtrack in addition, it not too shabby, expecially Ben Jelen's beautiful 'Come On'.
Yes, at times it was funny and fun. But. At other times it was heavy handed, nasty, and worthy of a cringe or two in disbelief. To suggest the plot was a little more than farfetched is putting it kindly. It was an idiot idea that could have done with a little more consideration. (It doesn't say much about a film that it was edited 3 times and released (and rereleased) after each edit...a year between each showing! And still it couldn't rise above the silly premise. This was no hit.)
Amanda Bynes is too strong a talent to waste her efforts on slipshod efforts like this.
Sadly, not a keeper. (But I am glad that I at least watched it once.)
Which I do... But even for me, It was hard to watch,
Lousy story = lousy movie.
Makes me want to watch "SHE'S THE MAN" for the 37th time.

My daughter and I like Amanda Bynes. This movie was not her best work and the scene transitions make it feel a bit cheesy. It is still a fun movie. Read morePublished 2 months ago by superdataman
I thought this was OK for a single viewing. It was not as good as the actors in it would indicate. The story is pretty far fetched. The dialog is ok but not really good. Read morePublished 7 months ago by pauld
