Storyline

Andy and his three nerdy mates are graduating A-students, but feel they missed out on juvenile fun and make a pact to catch up with love - and party life during the summer before each attending another ivy League college. 'The lion' is first to score via his dojo job as martial arts sensei. Andy's job as country club junior tennis coach however is perfect to earn a pretty penny from private lessons, often actually in wealthy bored women's beds, which gets him exposed to the senior staff after driving naked to avoid an early-returning husband catching on. Andy still dreams of true love with an Indian Internet BFF whom he promises to pay for a ticket so they can meet at last. Written by KGF Vissers

The summer of YES!
24 July 2017 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

It was just like the British film 'Kids in Love' I'd seen prior to this. Explored only on a comedic side. Four friends who have been the ideal kids, after a few years later on one summer, before heading to the college, they have decided to accomplish everything they had missed in their life so far. So it's a time to blend in with what their kind do, but not as easy as it seems. Sometimes everything goes out of their proportion and some of them struggle at beginning itself. Overall, how their summer ends, in that, what they had gained and lost was told.

Written and directed by a newcomer. Really very good try. Good comedies and well performed actors. The four lead characters were unique. The story around them was nicely built. But not they all were equally balanced. Most of the focus was on Nicolas Braun and then Zoey. I kind of felt the scenes were intentionally done, but worth an attempt. Slightly predictable film, which was like any Hollywood teenage flick. At a time a few things stretch beyond our anticipation. Might not be the best teen flick, though worth a watch.

6/10
