Rated PG for some violence and thematic material, and for brief language, sensuality and smoking.
Reviewer's Grade: B
"I saw this with my mom, and before going into the theater talked to Sheri, our favorite ticket taker (she's a friend). She said she loved the movie, but felt that they changed scenes just when she wanted more information on the history. I couldn't agree more. That being said, I love Hawai'i and loved the story. It is definitely a rental." - Heidi
