Overhearing his crush say she only likes “real island guys” is all it takes to get Adam (Neil Amituanai, in his big screen debut) packing his bags for Samoa, in this comedy by Stallone Vaiaoga-Ioasa (TV's Fresh). Shot largely in Samoa over two weeks, the self-funded film co-stars Samoan locals Vito Vito and Fesuiai Viliamu as Adam’s cousins, teaching him the basics of island life. Until the end, I found the Adam character to be not only a "momma's boy", but a lazy, dork with little to admire. If he had been written as shy and poorly educated, I think his character would have been more believable. Mostly enjoyable for the music and photography.

Censor Rating: PG13 - Review Rating: C+
