A Very Sweet Film
Michael Cuomo | 01/29/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)
"In all honesty I purchased this dvd because it was cheap and had the sexy Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) in it. I wasn't expecting much from it, but it turned out to be a heart-warming film. The performances were excellent and it had a nice look to it. There are no extras and it only comes in full-screen (it was a made-for-tv movie) but it was entertaining enough to watch. I'm glad I bought it."
Moonlight Bay Shines

(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a TV movie and it has the usual TV type dramatic elements such as alcoholism, divorce, dysfunction, etc. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was also genuine and sweet. It's a simple story of a 17 year old girl (Kristen Bell) spending the summer with her father (Tim Matheson) whom she hasn't seen in ten years. He lives by a lake in a small town in Arizona which gives the movie a very nice look and mood. I wish it were shot in wide screen to take better advantage of the scenery but alas, this is TV fare.
Matheson and Bell are very good together and the supporting characters are low-key and likable. I enjoyed my time at 'Moonlight Bay' and I think you will too."

"I enjoyed this movie also. It's about a 17 year old girl who goes to spend the summer with her father (who abandoned her and her mother) and she tries to get to know him and reconcile with him.
It's set in a small Arizona town with a few eccentric townspeople. (Auggie-played by Edward Asner is wonderful). The movie is definately worth the price. Until I happened to come across it, I never even heard of this small gem of a movie."
