This story was unreal, shallow and very boring. I watched this when I was a teen and I did not like it at all. Girls running around in bikinis and half-naked guys are not at all appealing to me. It was all about this girl trying to get the attention of a 'hot' guy. If you don't mind your kids seeing something like this, then go for it

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Lovewrecked's premise is fairly cute, and Bynes' sparkling personality and comedic timing are in top form. But the end result is a predictable story that's brimming with back-biting, bikinis, and batting of eyes. The weak female characters often pose their half-naked bodies to turn guys' heads -- and, unfortunately, most of the time it works. In one memorable scene, for example, Jenny and Alexis wind up brawling on the beach, and, rather than attempt to separate them, Jason just sits back with his island munchies and grins happily while he watches.

In the end, Jenny faces a tough choice and discovers a lot about herself and what she really values in a romantic relationship, but all in all, Lovewrecked is steeped in the same skewed messages about self-respect and desirability that already bombard tween and teen girls.
