All Rise...

Closing Statement

White Water Summer is not nearly the bad film I expected. Take away the flash-forward scenes of Suspiciously Older Alan narrating, and you have swift, fun, action-oriented adventure that has balanced acting and a good theme at heart: Grow up the hard way—with courage.

The Verdict

The flash-forward narration is almost inexcusable-almost. But that Sean Astin is so darn cute, I'll let White Water Summer go with a slap on the wrist.

Give us your feedback!

Did we give White Water Summer a fair trial? yes / no
