Is It Any Good?

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

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.
