Below average but better than expected. The relationship between the two main protagonists, played by Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, didn’t quite gel. The casting of Emma Stone as a 1/4 Hawaiian has created significant controversy because of the assertion by many that she doesn’t look anything like a Hawaiian. The cast has some well known names including Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, and Alec Baldwin. They’ve done the best they can with the somewhat meandering and sentimental script but, overall, it is not a great movie. The scenery of Hawaii is good – as would be expected. It’s pleasant but uncompelling.
