DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Drama - This is a drama aimed at teens and young adults. Zac Efron fans should be pleased, but fans of Ray Liotta and especially Kim Basinger will be disappointed by their extremely limited screen time. Parents of children who are fans of Efron's High School Musical films should note that this is a more mature film, including scenes of sensuality.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Charlie St. Cloud will almost certainly appeal to its core demographic and absolutely no one else.

USA Today Full Review
Average The movie tries to capture the crushing weight of loss, but between the insipid pop tunes and the repetitive shots cutting away to a lighthouse on a scenic outcropping, it feels more like a film version of a condolence card.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 84 moviegoers:
TEENS:Females loved "Charlie St. Cloud." Most gave it their highest rating. The male reviews are also very high, but quite a few only rated it average, which is a bit disappointing. However, for this type of movie (no action or killing) these are pretty good reviews from the guys.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great reviews from the few people in this group.
ADULTS:The female reviews are very high. Approximately half loved "Charlie St. Cloud." However, a few were slightly disappointed, only rating it average. The male reviews are good but not great. A few loved it but most rated it above average with quite a few rating it average and below average. Considering this is not exactly a movie for guys, I suppose these are decent reviews.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Efron) has the adoration of mother Claire (Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam (newcomer Charlie Tahan), as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown. But his bright future is cut short when a tragedy strikes and takes his dreams with it.

After his high-school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with newfound love. And as he finds the courage to let go of the past for good, Charlie discovers the soul most worth saving is his own.
