Movie Reviews

I would be tempted to call Aquamarine sugary if the term didn’t imply a headache after the product’s digestion. The movie, directed with a seeming effortlessness by newcomer Elizabeth Allen, is as light and marshmallowy as ‘tween flicks come, but leaves the viewer with far more post-viewing satisfaction than most of its standard-issue counterparts. Not that it’s particularly profound or anything of the like: the plot follows the misadventures of a mermaid (Sara Paxton) and the two human friends (teenage singer “JoJo” and Emma Roberts) that she acquires when she is washed up into their beach-club’s pool after a storm. However, Aquamarine’s humorous delivery and charming lead performances make it enjoyable enough to permit the viewer to look back on it with smiles rather than shrugs.
