Love at the Shore

Synopsis: Successful and driven single mom Jenna Thompson writes teen novels, and she has only five weeks to deliver the next one to her publisher. So, this year's annual beach vacation with her kids Nick (Luke Loveless) and Ally (Reagan Shumate), will be a working vacation for Jenna. Upon arrival, the family soon meets their new next-door neighbor, confident, devil-may-care surfer Lucas McKinnon, with whom they will be sharing walls and a patio for the next month. Lucas cranks up his music at night, sleeps late, and allows Tank to run around at will. Jenna bangs away at her novel with little success, often blaming Lucas' loud volleyball matches and irregular hours for her inability to progress. However, after Lucas finds himself bonding with Nick and Ally, Jenna begins to see a different side of Lucas, and when the two find themselves alone together one evening for dinner, each begins to see the other in a whole new - and attractive - light. Starring Amanda Righetti and Peter Porte.

Every year we say we're not

gonna read too much

and every summer

we're bursting.

If you wouldn't insist

on bringing that thing.

"That thing" may be

a dusty old antique

but it helps me

brainstorm when I'm stuck

and considering I only have

five weeks to finish my book...

I need it.

This whole sequel thing

is much more

difficult than I thought.

Then it's a good thing

you'll be spending

all summer with me

for inspiration.


-Hi, Maureen.


-Hi, Maureen.

-Wait, wait, wait.

Final check.

Did you grab your retainer?

Yes, it's in my mouth.

Please don't pretend lisp.

Ally, did you get

your summer reading?

You can just

call it homework, mom.

As long as you have it, sweetie,

we'll work on semantics later.

Can Grayson ride with us?

If any of us were packed, yes.

You sure you don't want us

to wait for you?

As much as

I'd love to get my hands

on your super neat

packing skills

you remember last year?

And the year before?



We're a slow-moving team.

You're right.

We'll meet you there.

See ya.

Bye, guys!

Bye, house.


'How about a map update, Nick?'

I think she just said

we're close.

Is it near Ocean Burger?

You always wanna

go to Ocean Burger.

And you always

wanna go to Splash Cafe.

Well, we're changin' it up

this year.

New rental house,

new summer camp.

Does that mean

it's not near Ocean Burger?

'We can still go,

it just means that we have to'

'drive to get there.'

Alright, we're gettin' close.

-Tell me your goals.

-I don't have anything new.

It's just, I wanna

make swim team next year.

Well, you've got all summer

to practice, bud.

You can do it this time.

Can I just eat chocolate

all summer?


You can have some

chocolate, but maybe

you could pick a goal

that's a little less sugary?

I know.

Play at camp, so you could

finish your book?

Both of our goals

rolled into one.

I like the efficiency.

Thank you.

Here it is.

-'Are you guys excited?'


'I'm excited.

You guys, check this out.'

'The beach looks awesome.'

-'I'm not going.'

-'This is so... '

'Mom, look at the huge turtle.'

'That's so cool.'

'I can't wait.'

'Alright, we're here.'


This is great.

Alright, guys,

let's check it out.

We'll grab the stuff later.

-This is awesome.


This is us.

Right here.


We've got a dog.

I've always wanted one.

That's not our dog, sweetie.

Maybe, like,

half of him is ours?

Can we get the top half?

We don't even know

if he's friendly yet.

-I call top bunk.

-Actually, we have two bunks.

Then I call biggest cookie.

Do you ever stop

thinking about food?

I don't know,

maybe someday, when I'm older.

I think I can see the

summer day camp from our bed.

Should be real close.

Like, walking distance close?

I think so.

This welcome basket's

really cool.

Why don't you guys

tackle this box

while I take

our beach toys out back?

I'll give you my cookies

if you empty that box.


I'm sorry.

I'm sorry, I didn't...

I didn't expect a shower

to be in the middle

of our place.

-Sorry about that.


You must be the new neighbor.


we just checked in.

I... just wanted

to find somewhere to put this.

Yeah, I don't think it really

matters where you put it.

I'm Lucas, by the way.

Lucas McKennon.

Well, Lucas...

I'm gonna let you

finish what you're doing

and I'm gonna put this away.

It was nice meeting you.

Nice meeting you.

Good luck.

That's Tank.

Hi, Tank.

I should probably get inside

before my kids think

you ate me.

-Get out of here, boy.
