This romcom sounded like it would be interesting as I do like both of the actors and the setting in a small town seemed enchanting for a good romcom but I've not read the book.
However, the chemistry between the two leads is terrible and Al ost non existent so it's hard to imagine that they would have any interest in each other so the romance part just doesn't work which is just bad casting on the Directors or Producers part.
The acting is fine by both leads and it has nothing to do with anything but lack of chemistry. As on one hand you have a very pretty petite Asian girl that looks like she's 15 years old in a bathing suit, and a lifeguard that looks like he's twice her age and twice her height - Which is bad casting so maybe they could've cast it differently with either a younger main male lead or a slightly more mature older female lead but regardless these two had zero chemistry.
And the story is pretty basic with no real surprises which rarely matters in a good romcon provided the 2 leads have chemistry so the film did not work and felt like a bad Hallmark film.
