The Perfect Summer Movie Review

* I was provided a complimentary copy of the movie to facilitate my review. These are my opinions and experiences and yours may differ.*

(Taken from movie website) In The Perfect Summer, fatherless teenager Jake (Adam Horner) is happy living in Chicago, until his mother (Sydney Penny) decides to uproot them to a small surfing town where her estranged father (Eric Roberts), Jake's grandfather, lives. The transition isn't easy for anyone and it seems everywhere he goes, Jake manages to make enemies, including the town bully, Tyler (JD Banks), who doesn't like the new interloper or his interest in young surfing prodigy, Kayla (Katie Garfield). Stuck in the beach town with no friends and no knowledge of surfing, Jake has nowhere to turn until Cody (Jason Castro), the local surf shop owner, reveals that Jake's grandfather is a surf legend. Tired of feeling like an outcast, Jake asks Lou to teach him about surfing. Jake learns to face his fears, push through inhibitions and realizes that winning the respect of his new peers - and Katie's heart - might mean facing the biggest challenge of his life. 

This movie was great! I know how the main character felt because I had been uprooted as a kid and moved around a lot. I did not lose my dad or mom but know what going to a new place is all about. I felt bad for Jake because Tyler and the other bully would not leave him alone. The movie does have a good ending thankfully. It was very enjoyable and took me on an emotional ride. There are good and sad parts like many other dramas. All together it was an excellent movie and I will watch again! You can learn more about it here: Perfect Summer Movie online.
