Pretty good movie. Thought it would be a little more adventurous though, seemed to drag on a bit by the mid-end. The sites rating was a bit misleading though, there is a lot more sexual/sensual content than listed which surprised me. It reminded me of a poorer copy of Adventure Land. Characters seemed too "ditzy" especially the teen girls however it's definitely realistic. We meet shy, boring Duncan (Liam James) who's 14 and doesn't look forward to spending the summer with his mother Pam (Toni Collette) and her "smartass" boyfriend Trent (Steve Carell) at his beach house. But he has no choice. Trent's sister and Duncan's sister are all to themselves yet their next door neighbor Susanna (AnnaSophia Robb) takes a liking to Duncan in a friendly way. Susanna's hyper and upbeat mom (Allison Janney) drinks a lot and isn't afraid to admit it while good friend Joan (Amanda Peet) remains offbeat & a tad unlikable. Then there's cool guy Owen (Sam Rockwell) who's the owner of the Water Wizz Waterpark who becomes a friendly pal to Duncan and shows him how to lighten up.

, @ss, @sshole, some sexual related words, name calling like perv, idiot, [email protected]
etc. Violence has loud arguments, a man almost hits a boy when another man steps in, lots of jokes about stuff like cancer, killing yourself and beating people up, boy falls off a car hood. Sexual content contains a couple kissing and touching in front of a boy, a passionate kiss when a man says a sexual remark trying to get a boy to leave the room, two teens kiss, two grown women rub up against a boy and dance seductively while one is wearing a bikini top with an open shirt, women make a crude remark when a man is shown in a robe, boy tries to kiss a girl, comment about a rape of a teenager, butt grabbing, lots of sexual remarks and jokes about getting laid, making out, oral sex and more. A teens butt is starred at by men and a boy when she's in a bikini which prolongs on screen for a while. Lots of adult drinking and talking about drinking, a teen sneaks alcohol, some drugs and mentioning of doing drugs, a teen says she would do drugs with her kids...etc. One cigar scene. I'd say it's iffy for 13 so 14/15+ is fair!
