Aquamarine
Two 13-year-old best friends, Claire (Emma Roberts) and Hailey (Joanna 'JoJo' Levesque), discover a mermaid (Sara Paxton) named Aquamarine in a swimming pool. The beautiful, blue-haired, 18-year-old mermaid tells them that she swam away from home to escape an arranged marriage, in search of real love. If she can prove to her father that love is not a myth, he'll let her out of her planned underwater wedding, but he's only giving her three days.

When Claire and Hailey tell Aqua that they are "relationship experts," a talent they've acquired through the pages of magazines, she enlists their help. Aqua has her heart set on the Capri Club's lifeguard, Raymond Calder (Jake McDorman), so she promises to grant Claire and Hailey their wishes if they help her snag him. The girls jump at the opportunity because unless something magical happens, Hailey will be moving to Australia with her marine biologist mother after this last weekend of the summer.

Teaching Aquamarine the fine points of attracting a man is easier said than done. And with mere days until the Capri Club's Last Splash end-of-summer celebration, at which Raymond must profess his love for Aquamarine or no one will get their wish, the girls pool their knowledge and give Aquamarine a crash course in romance. This includes such surefire techniques as "The Laugh and Pass," and "The Fluff and Retreat." Then they give Aqua a hair makeover and a new wardrobe, and deal with the getting rid of Cecilia (Arielle Kebbel), Aqua's chief competition for Raymond. The girls hope that as long as Aquamarine can keep her land legs and avoid sprouting her massive, mythological tail, everyone will have their wishes come true.

More importantly, they learn some important lessons about the power of friendship, the true magic of love and the importance of standing on your own two feet. This romantic comedy coasts along on the light comedic touch of first-time feature director Elizabeth Allen and the charming performances of its stars.
