Charlie St. Cloud

A romantic drama starring Zac Efron (High School Musical) as accomplished young sailor Charlie St. Cloud. Life is sweet: he has the adoration of his mum Claire (Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam, as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy hometown. But his bright future is cut short when Sam dies in a car accident.

Charlie withdraws from life, meeting the spirit of his brother in the cemetery to play catch. After his high-school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring his past and moving forward with newfound love.

From the director of Igby Goes Down and 17 Again (also starring Efron).

Religious overtones, however, could make this the rare mainstream feature that connects with the faith-based entertainment market.

You are not, in a movie like this, supposed to think too much; you are supposed to be transported beyond skepticism on a wave of pure, tacky feeling. Instead, in this case, you drown in sentimental, ghoulish nonsense.

Some bad movies should carry a leper's bell to warn off ticket buyers. Such a contagion is Charlie St. Cloud, a load of mawkish swill starring Zac Efron (bereft of the talent he showed in "Me and Orson Welles").

For now, Efron remains an unrealized dream and Charlie St. Cloud an unrealized movie, though judging from the "ooohhs" and "awwwws" from the audience, for his core tween-girl fans, that's more than enough.

The film doesn't just fail, it actually gets sillier by the minute.

Charlie (Zac Efron) and Sam (Charlie Tahan) St Cloud make a great team. Despite there being six years between them, the pair are virtually unbeatable on the water and inseparable on land. But all that is about to change.
