For AJ (Nell Barlow) planning a gap year trip to knit jumpers for elephants is much more appealing than spending a week with her family at a British Seaside Holiday Park. Yet, she finds herself on a four-hour car journey to the Dorset coast with her mum Tina (Jo Hartley) and little sister Dayna. Met by older sister Lucy (Sophia di Martino), and her boyfriend Steve (Samuel Anderson), AJ expects this to be 'a week of hell'. That is, until she lays her eyes on the resident lifeguard Isla (Ella-Rae Smith) and is instantly infatuated.

Little Humour Evident - Sweetheart review by AS

Spoiler Alert

This years entry for the most boring film of the year competition. The characters are wooden, the dialogue basic and repetitive -- very hard to sustain any engagement with this offering.

Watchable Coming Of Age Comedy/Drama - Sweetheart review by GI

Spoiler Alert

A good natured holiday romance/coming of age comedy drama set in a dreary Dorset Holiday Park. Nell Barlow plays angry, awkward and environmentally conscious teenager AJ, who's mum (Jo Hartley) still insists on calling her April or Ape for short. AJ has been forced to go on this holiday with her younger sister, bossy pregnant older sister and sister's easy going boyfriend. Grumpy and defiant AJ hates every moment until she sees attractive pool lifeguard Isla (Ella-Rae Smith) and they strike up a friendship. AJ's sexual awakening is threatened by the stupid boys that circle around Isla but the resulting romance is one that only happens in films and whilst it's doomed to last just for the short holiday it teaches AJ that it's family that really important in her life. As a story this is fairly routine and predictable in many ways, with clumsy experiments with sex and the somewhat clichéd angry teenager battle with determined parent but Barlow plays AJ with gusto and makes this a very humorous and watchable film.
