Editorial Reviews

Is there anything sweeter than childhood memories? Not for Lisa and Andy. Years ago these cousins and best friends were inseparable, creating adventures that would last a lifetime. Now as adults they have gone their separate ways. But when Andy receives some devastating news and Lisa's life is on the verge of falling apart, they reconnect. Looking to their past to face the present, they must overcome their challenges with the faith that inspired them as children.

Customer Reviews

Too predictable, too cheesy.
Kelly Cook
THAT and the fact that this is a mormon movie was enough to stop it and look for something else.

Not for kids, not good story line.

ONCE UPON A SUMMER is a film that will touch the heart and mind of many LDS movie-lovers. Director Rob Diamond has created a touching film about finding and holding dear the things that really matter in life; friendship, family, truth. Actress Heather Beers has a role worthy of her talents (she was the lead in CHARLY) and her co-star Sussanne Sutchy is excellent as her best friend. The two young girls who play these best friends as children are equally wonderful. This is a film that will enrich the viewers life and one that they will likely want to share with others. This is a "Gem" well worth experiencing. High marks must also be given to the camera man and composer.

I love movies that my whole family can watch (which is getting more and more difficult these days), so I was excited this was on demand at Amazon. This was an entertaining family movie. It's really about the two women who were once very close and then drifted apart coming back together and reminiscing about a special summer when they were girls and the things they did as kids. Let's just say the girls stirred up some trouble that made us laugh. It kept my 6- and 9-year-olds interested and was not too slow or chick-flicky for my husband. When he read the synopsis, he said "boring!" but then he really got into it and enjoyed it. As for me, I would definitely recommend it!

This movie was...pretty terrible. I was excited to see it because I loved Heather Beers in "Baptists At Our Barbecue" and "Charly" but this...yikes. It was really bad. Honestly, I think most of the actors could have done a decent job if they'd been given half a chance with a somewhat decent script but the story itself was just badly executed. The movie is a strange blend of "Now and Then," "Stand By Me," and "Charly," with a little bit of "The Ghost Whisperer" thrown in (yep, two 8 year girls ACTUALLY "cross a ghost" in one EXTREMELY bizarre scene). Also, yes, this IS a movie told from the LDS perspective (which didn't both me since I myself am Mormon) but please PLEASE stop saying that this movie is done BY "the Mormons." It's not. It may have been WRITTEN by Mormons, FOR Mormons, but the Mormon church had NOTHING to do with this piece of cinematic offal. It's DEFINITELY not doctrinal in ANY way, shape, or form other than the conversation had by the girls about being baptized washing away all of your sins (although they get off track when they say that after they get baptized they can't do anything bad ever again, which flies in the face of the Mormon emphasis on repentance).

If you're looking for some good Mormon movies to watch, I recommend "Baptists at Our Barbecue," "The Best Two Years" (!!!), "The Singles Ward," or "Charly" (that last one especially if you're looking for a little insight into Mormon teachings on the afterlife). Steer well clear of this one!

I wish I would have read ALL the reviews before watching this with my kids. We stopped midway during the crazy ghost scene. The first two reviews on the Amazon Prime app offer a glowing family-friendly review. I do not recommend this film. It was absolutely horrible.

Some parts of this movie are ok, but there is a bizarre segment in the middle that really turned me off.

If this is supposed to be a movie based on Christian values, why are the girls talking to a a dead person? HORRIBLE WRITING! I am so glad that I didn't let my children see this. I don't even know how it ended because I just stop. I'm very disappointed that I trusted a description that has this as a faith-based movie. Shameful.

One of the reasons I purchased this movie was based upon a customer review that was posted on Amazon which gave this movie a five star rating. You've got to be kidding me. I am usually very generous with my ratings, but this movie was pathetic. It is proof that you shouldn't believe everything you read. I loved Heather Beers in Charley, so I was excited to see her again in this movie. The acting across the board was very poor, and what was up with the scene of the dead boy from the 1940's? That was just flat out creapy! Why in the world was that in the movie?! Really strange. Don't waste your money on this one. Take my word for it.

It was really slow. I kept watching to see how it ended and it was a little uneventful. Could have been so good.
