Started great with chemistry on Charley (Zac Efron) and his kid brother Sam (Charlie Tahan) along with Mom Kim Bassinger. Sam dies, love interest comes into the picture and the movie slows and yet does not become emotionally gripping nor even interesting.
This movie was 100% about showing the face of the quite handsome Zac in all sorts of lights/shadows etc. to drive the teen girls nuts.
Just too much, movie didn't work.
At the end of the day, it has to be a good story/movie/entertaining (even for teen girls) and this flick just didn't work.
