Some good things but just needed a bit more upf to really be great. A good family flick, parents will probably fall asleep if they are in recliners. There is good chemistry between Max and Sophie (the two leads), not sloppy which can be rare in young adult films. There is a bit of a twist at the end, it was a surprise and I wish there had been more of it.
