Trivia

There were different reports in 2012 indicating that Kylie Minogue, Gemma Arterton and Samantha Barks were in talks for this film but none of them ultimately appeared. A report by The Wrap also indicated that the film would be about a mother and daughter who fall for the same man, but the film was ultimately about two sisters. See more »

Goofs

The scene after the tomato festival where Taylor and Raf go wash at the beach probably wouldn't show the sun setting on the sea. It's debatable, since the closest shoreline to their location in Apulia is 20 miles north-west, where the sun would always rise over the sea. Though if they traveled 80 miles south-west to the Gulf of Taranto they would be facing the other direction. Since the tomato festival isn't given an exact location is hard to say. See more »

Quotes

Raf: I was just running naked down the street missing my own wedding cos some idiot left me duct-taped to a tree with a donkey.

Semi-enjoyable summer flick

The familiar story of a British girl going on a holiday in the Mediterranean and getting involved with a local boy. Once the summer's over so is the romance.

Three years later her sister is to marry that boy, so what is she to do?

The story unfolds in the background of beautiful seaside, nice old buildings and of course lots of songs from the 1980's. One needs not read too much into the story as there are few issues, especially with the ease which the main characters use the word 'love' as well as the speed at which they are prepared to marry...or not!

Ultimately, this is nothing more than a summer flick and will provide for a fairly pleasant 90 minutes.
