Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Resort to Love is an affable romantic comedy with little sexual content but lots of drinking. The story of a reencounter between ex-lovers at an island resort is focused more on emotions than physical intimacy: men and women kiss, a woman ogles a man's muscular torso, and there's discussion of past affairs. The cast, a diverse group of compassionate up-and-coming professionals, drink a lot. Most scenes at the resort involve alcohol in the form of wine, shots, beer, and cocktails. In one scene, a woman gets drunk and needs help back to her room. There's mention of smoking cigars and a woman drinks wine at breakfast when she's feeling down. Violence is mostly pratfalls, though one scene ultimately played as a "meet cute" comedic moment involves two people that have to be saved from potentially drowning in the ocean. Language includes "booty," "demon," "wimp," "stupid," "idiot," "diarrhea," "God," "Jesus," "holy snap," "lying, scheming, two-faced…" To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
This feel-good romantic comedy combines an incredibly likable cast, a sweet story about falling in and out of love, and a blissful island setting. Resort to Love might not break new ground in the genre or leave you philosophizing, but its location, diverse cast, and enjoyable pop soundtrack -- including songs performed by leads Milian and Pitts -- offer novel appeal. The film also maturely balances comedy with realistic emotion. There's humor here, including some slapstick, but the filmmakers make a wise decision to play some of the more important scenes straight. The climactic fight between two women and a man's tender vows at his wedding are two honest and heartfelt scenes that help lift up this pleasant romcom.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
