Somewhere in the Asianic Sea is a little island, with a volcano, a beach, a jungle, and a little house where two people live and work. Life is perfect. And Nim is never lonely with her sea animal friends.
Then Jack goes out to collect specimens, and Nim convinces him to let her stay on the island. And while Jack is gone, Nim receives a special email from her hero Alex Rover, the great adventurer in her favourite book series. He needs help with his next book!
In America, a borderline agoraphobic lives in her apartment writing novels about an adventurer named after herself; Alex (or Alexandra) Rover. And she has writer’s block.
A storm wrecks Jack’s ship, and it seems to Nim that he might never come back. But could a hygiene-freak of an author help this little girl, who still thinks that Alexandra is a man who has had thousands of adventures? Could the tourists take over the island? Is Jack even alive?
In My Opinion…
Makers: 20th Century Fox
My Rating: 3
The absolute BEST part of this movie was the borderline-agoraphobic author who was just hilarious and made the movie awesome. She was just so funny and a very good actress.
But I only rated this movie a 3 — for several reasons:
Firstly, it was an insult to all Australians. They had that far dankum Awssie Accunt that’s so ansaltang. If you catch my drift. And other things, like the fact all the Australians were getting sun burnt, when Australians are very aware of the sun.
Another was the animals and the tacky humor that came with them.
But all up it wasn’t bad. It was mostly good. Very funny. I would watch it again, I’m sure.
