Aquamarine DVD Review
Take three of the biggest young Hollywood stars and throw them all together and you've got the flick, Aquamarine. Sara Paxton shows off her stuff as a mermaid who's determined to find real love - and Emma Roberts and JoJo are there to help her out. Find out if this movie makes a big splash or if it's just a little too fishy!
Aquamarine - Mermaid Magic
After a big storm, Claire (Emma Roberts) and Hailey (JoJo) discover something they didn't think existed swimming around in their pool. A mermaid named Aquamarine has been washed in with a wave and now it's up to the two girls to help her on her search for real love. If she doesn't find it in three days, her dad will force her back to the ocean to marry a merman she doesn't like!
Aquamarine - Finding Friendship
In order to help Aquamarine, Claire and Hailey have to sacrifice their huge crushes on local lifeguard Raymond. But Aquamarine has promised to grant them one wish for helping her to fall in love with the sun-bleached lifeguard and they plan on using it to keep Hailey's mom from making her move to Australia. Watching the girls help a mermaid who goes from human form to mermaid form every time the sun sets makes for some hilarious scenarios. There are also some fabulous instances of why it's so important to have a BFF who's always got you're back.
Aquamarine - Something Fishy...
Aquamarine is a great flick to check out with the girls, but there are some things that hold it back from being a total hit. For instance, why when Aquamarine is a mermaid is she not wearing a top? Sure, her hair covers all the bits that should be covered up, but shouldn't a teenage girl at least be sporting a bikini top of shells or something? The rest of the flick seems to emphasize being girly and not sexy (which is a great message) but then Aqua is giving off this strangely sexual vibe when she's a mermaid.
Aquamarine - DVD Features
The Aquamarine DVD is packed full of wicked features like commentary from the stars, deleted scenes and the casts' original auditions! If you're a real movie-buff, don't miss the scene-specific directors commentary.
Aquamarine - Bottom Line
This is a great movie that you might even want to see a couple of times. From the importance of friendship to encouraging girls to skip the mall and hit vintage stores more often, there are a ton of great themes. Aquamarine is definitely a chick flick best saved for a girls' night!
