Aloha Summer
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0
Donna Johnson

"Aloha Summer" is a wonderfully produced homage to Hawaii and extremely entertaining. The acting is topnotch as is the cinematography. Although the "directing" is weak with too little coverage of important scenes, to overall impact of the production is grandly entertaining. Whoever cast Tia Carrere in her first feature film must share in the brilliance of the production.
