Erik von Detten,
School... there is the popular crowd. Teachers favor some students over others. Because of this, Violet decides to start a school paper, which exposes many embarrassing secrets of popular kids who think they run the campus.
Alex graduates as valedictorian in glorious rascally style, but during the stunt one last time chases a babysitting au pair, now for Sara. So his stepmother Jenny must do it herself again on Oliver's tropical surprise vacation, with some help from Katie, who is allowed to bring along her study buddy Ariana, to Alexa's taste when they arrive in a Puertorican villa managed by Nigel's brother Rupert. While the girls swoon over local rental bikes entrepreneur Danny, jealous Katie sabotages Alex's buddy romance with Ari, which proves more painful for all of them then dodging the clueless bodyguards. Oliver meanwhile can't escape from the threat posed to his company's future, a water motor, a legacy for Alex incompatible with the heir's artistic ambitions, posed by executive rival Walter Hausen at board level.Written by
Anyone expecting this to be even remotely "cute" or have any substance even close to the originals will be sorely disappointed! The plot was so thin and non-existent you could fit it on the head of a pin. 2 hours of my life I will never get back. The only redeeming quality of this movie is if you like seeing all the original cast members. Assuming they even read the script beforehand I'm shocked they were even able to get all the original cast together for this sub-par waste of airtime. What a joke of a movie compared to the previous ones. There are no real notable moments in this movie and the first hour could have literally been deleted as watching paint dry would be more exciting. In fact nothing of any substance at all happens until the last 15min. or so. At least even the worst of made-for-TV movies are "cute" on some level.
