I enjoyed the movie, but wish Zac Efron spoke more. I was alittle frustrated with his silence. But, I did appreciate when the cop kept hassling him, he always took the high road. He knew the cops father verbally always putt him down. So Zac, even when hassled by cop, treated him with respect. Even reminded him he was a good man. Tried to save the cops life in flood. It reminded me, that when being treated not so kind, to handle it God’s way…..

My 10 yr old daughter wanted to go see this with her 12 yr old friend; and; 13 yr. older SISTER- I watched the clips; and I was"nt sure although it did look like a good movie; my 10 yr old is very mature and “older & wiser” than her years! With my doubts; I let them go. They loved it. It did however bring me right back to the original Endless Love with brooke shields; realizing how old I am ! (45) I was kind of surprised it was rated pg13- with the “brief” nudity. but I am a laid- back mom; and don’t regret letting my youngest go grin Now I"de like to see it myself maybe- just once!
