"Jenny Taylor (Amanda Bynes) is a high school senior obsessed with Jason Masters (Chris Carmack). She is convinced that if they could just spend some time together, Jason would realize they are soul mates and the two of them would fall in love. The catch? Jason is an internationally famous pop star, so there's no way that a nobody like Jenny would ever get to met him.
Looking to earn money for college, Jenny gets a summer job at a Caribbean resort with her best friend Ryan (Jonathan Bennett). Unfortunately, her nemesis Alexis (Jamie-Lynn DiScala) also shows up.
The trio hasn't been there long before Jason shows up for a couple days off in the middle of his current tour. Naturally, Jenny is ecstatic and does anything she can to catch his eye, including slip aboard the night cruise that Jason is taking. When Jason accidentally falls overboard, Jenny dives in and saves him. The two wind up stranded on an island. Jenny immediately realizes this is her chance, and she intends to make the most of it, going to any lengths necessary to win her man.
Okay, I'll fess up. I enjoy Amanda Bynes. So I decided to give this made for TV movie a try. Amanda is great in it. The part of Jenny was written for her. The rest of the cast is fine, but Amanda is the standout.
Unfortunately, the plot needed some work. There were some twists in the final third that really came out of nowhere and made little to no sense.
On the whole, this is a light and fluffy way to waste a couple hours. I recommend viewing it before you buy since it's probably not something you'll want to watch more then once."

"This is a movie to see for a good time.
Watch it with the gang for everyone to have fun.
Its great entertainment watching the leagths Amanda Bynes goes to to keep him from finding out their only 2 miles from the hotel.
The extras are lacking on this dvd.
I think standard extras on all dvd releases should be min blooper reel and deleted scenes.
This movie was orignal set to be released in theaters in 2005 with a
The distribution to theaters fell apart for some reason.

Lovewrecked is a cute, tween-aimed(I think!?) romantic comedy starring the adorable quips of Amanda Bynes as Jenny Taylor, a high school girl who finds her favorite rock star, Jason Masters(Chris Carmack) is staying at the hotel she is employed at for the summer!(Dream Come TRUE!)
After saving him from drowning and pulling him to safety, Jenny finds a way to convince Jason that they are trapped on an island, all alone.(hoping that their relationship will progresses) One problem, he doesn't know they are just on the other end of the island, with only a small forest inbetween them and his freedom! Will Jenny's beautiful best friend Ryan(Jonathan Bennet) help hide her secret, even though he's been in love with her since he can remember?(Of course he will, they always do...)
It isn't the deepest, or most inventive plot line, but Amanda Bynes carries the average film nearly single-handedly, that is enjoyable even after multiple viewings.
The soundtrack in addition, it not too shabby, expecially Ben Jelen's beautiful 'Come On'.
What's Not to Like - Amanda is in a Bikini the Whole Time

"Amanda Bynes is easily one of the most talented comedian actresses today - she rises above the most pedestrian plots and writing - giving it her all and finding laughs where the material is mostly cliched. Yes, you can pretty much guess where the movie is going but she makes it all fun - and she's in a bikini practically the entire movie - what's not to like about this film?"
