A standard formula for movies is: an irritating, spoiled young girl from a big city is sent away to live in a rural location. While there, she becomes less irritating and finally actually likeable, or even lovable. Usually there a horse is involved in the transformation. There is no horse in this movie and the girl remains irritating for a long time. Too long. She screams at everyone all the time. Where her doddering old Grandpa opens his bathroom door and sees her wrapped in a towel, she screams at him. When he turns away she screams at him again, insisting that he come back and shut the bathroom door. When he comes back, to close the door, she screams at him again. Later when she falls out of a motorboat, she screams at the guy who saved her life. By that time I was sort of wishing she had drowned. Eventually she starts to mellow out and act like a normal human being, a side of her that remains hidden during the first half of the movie. Another problem with this film is Annie's parents, especially her mother, who acts like an unbalanced shrew during 95% of the movie. Not much family value in that! I watched this movie twice, and liked it much more the second time, knowing the irritating girl was going to change. Some viewers might not last that long.
