Storyline Heading
A celebrated military contractor returns to the site of his greatest career triumphs - the US Space program in Honolulu, Hawaii - and reconnects with a long-ago love while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watchdog assigned to him.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama Romantic - This is a romantic comedy-drama aimed at older adults. Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, and Rachel McAdams fans should enjoy, but the other name stars in the cast have much smaller roles. Some mild language and adult subject matter make the film of caution to parents of young kids, who would not be interested anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average It's hard to find a level on which Aloha works. It's a murky, muddled mess. There are some good individual scenes - mostly featuring the kind of interpersonal interaction that has become Crowe's hallmark - but these exist in isolation.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average This is the rare Crowe film that could stand to be a little longer, that could use some more development in its characters and breathing room in their relationships. As it stands now, "Aloha” feels like several films at once, crammed together and sped up, with results that are emotionally hollow and narratively confusing.

NY Post Full Review
Below Average ...a jumble of too many plots involving characters who almost never talk or act like real people. The film alternates between shoving its confusing plot forward and dropping dialogue bombs that fizzle:...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Average It gives me no pleasure to report that Aloha is still a mess, a handful of stories struggling for a unifying tone. It's a top-flight cast, but Cooper offers too little to Stone's too much. Only McAdams finds a touching balance.

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 61 moviegoers:
Overall, these moviegoer reviews are MUCH better than the critic reviews of "average" and "below average."
TEENS: Four of the six females enjoyed "Aloha" very much." The other two felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One male loved it, one enjoyed it very much and one rated it "average." The female reviews are much better. Three of the four females loved "Aloha" with the remaining one rating it "Above average," which indicates a movie she enjoyed very much, but didn't love.
ADULTS: These are very good reviews from both the males and females. Approximately half of both groups loved "Aloha." Another 30% to 35% enjoyed it very much, rating it "above average." Only about 20% felt it was just an"average" movie. So you basically have an 80% probability of truly enjoying "Aloha."
