Characters- 2/10 RUSHED & little character development Plot- 1/ 10
Let me get this straight, I didn't think this would be a good movie in the first place. I actually LIKE cheesy cliché movies, even when they're kind of bad. But this movie... this cheesy cliché movie tried to be all meaningful and it just doesn't work here. The jokes also fell flat. I only laughed ONCE.
Summed up, Cora (Debby Ryan) falls down the stairs & has her photo taken by the paparazzi. She's so embarrassed that she moves in with her aunt in Australia. This is where she meets Chika and the love interest... I don't even remember his name and I just watched it lol.
Every moment Cora has with her family or new friends is in a montage so you don't really feel the connections or chemistry that well. There were like, SEVEN, LONG MONTAGES.
It got to the point when the characters hung out I'd be like "I swear to god if this turns into a montage... oh, another mONTAGE. WHO KNEW"
The whole movie dragged & a lot of the character bonding happened in montages so when conflict happened, I didn't really care. Plus, all the conflict was solved almost instantly.
And, Cora was a B**ch. She was a hypocrite and she was mean to EVERYONE who helped her. She was mean to her aunt for no real reason! Her aunt was all "do what makes u happy" and Cora's all "u don't even swim bc ur husband died" like wtf LMAO
(I think that was just because lazy writing. They needed more conflict so they had to make Cora start some.)
Also, she was instantly forgiven every time she apologized. She wasn't held accountable for what she did.
Cora is supposed to be a strong individual trying to find herself but she's not. I honestly would hate to be friends with her LOL. She's everything I try NOT to be.
The plot was soooo messy. Besides the slow pacing and meaningless montages, there were TWO climaxes, one right after the other. It just felt rushed and weird. NOT TO MENTON, that the middle climax was waaaayyyyy to close to the last two climaxes.
I also didn't care for the aunt mourning over her dead husband subplot lol.
Near the end, the mom had a redemption arc and she needed one but it was SO rushed. There wasn't enough character development for the mom to suddenly be a caring mother!
I'd like to think that kids would enjoy this film, but I'd be lying. I don't think a child could sit through this. It was slow, boring, and predictable.
Rip Tide sucked.
Teenage model Cora (played by Disney star Debby Ryan) is the daughter of the head of a major modelling agency and has always worked hard to live up to the expectations of her mother (Danielle Carter). When a damaging video of Cora goes viral she departs for Australia to spend time with her aunt Margot (Genevieve Hegney). Margot is also facing her own difficulties and their time together becomes a learning experience for them both.
