Quotes

Camilla Barnes: It makes me so sad that we as a society are still so inflexible about public nudity.
Steve Galmarini: What nudity? I'm writing him up for having a sleepover on state property.
Ash Baker: I swear I didn't know you couldn't camp on the beach.
Camilla Barnes: But whose beach is it really?

I was really looking forward to this. But it was just all over the place with no real idea of what it want's to be. And it did not helped that it looked like an episode of Dawsons Creek. :(

The intro was meant well. But it was totally off in timing and in play with the music. I mention this, because it kinda summarizes the whole movie. But great poster though.
