Movie Info

Based on a true story, this Montana-set adventure drama follows Elliot Plumm (Chris Massoglia), a teenage boy neglected by his alcoholic, amateur boxing champ father (William Baldwin), who, along with his girlfriend (Morgan Flynn) and younger brother, Rocky (Owen Pearce), tracks down a stolen marionette from a popular local children's television show hosted by the inimitable Happy Herb (Henry Winkler). Even after they find the marionette, however, the troubles on the homefront continue.

Critic Reviews for A Plumm Summer

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (8)

  • This family film is willing to tackle important issues such as burgeoning sexuality, alcoholism and a troubled home life but does so in a bland and unconvincing story.

    May 15, 2008
  • This might be palatable if it weren't also fraught with leaden direction and horrible acting -- it's a painful thing when William Baldwin's the best actor you've got.

  • Feels like an homage to a bygone era of moviemaking.

    February 20, 2008
  • While ninety percent of the film is good for the family, there is ten percent that I will caution parents on.

    August 16, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Film crumbles when the oppressive frowns are released, turning an amiable diversion into a chore to finish, due in great part to the sheer weight of the distress. The movie never fully recovers from the sour detour.

    May 29, 2009 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • The shame here is, it's not a terrible movie. It's just pretty amateurish in terms of the direction and some of the performances.
