In 1959 teenager Makepeace travels from the mainland to Hawaii with his parents for a vacation. In a series of vignettes he meets five other teenage boys, and the episodic film follows the youngsters as they learn about surfing, drinking, prostitutes, prejudice, and true friendship. As a

coming-of-age picture, ALOHA SUMMER doesn't do much to enliven the subgenre, but the young actors create a nice rapport and have enough appeal to make the movie enjoyable. The island footage is pretty, but nothing spectacular, and the shots of the surfers in action are quite impressive. Though

they didn't create a very good movie, the filmmakers had their hearts is in the right place, and for that they should be commended.
