A Perfect Getaway (2009) R - 3½ Stars

First off, are there actually places you can purchase permits and hike into private beaches on Kauai? I wish I would have known that when I went there. The acting is cast well and actually pretty good through most of this movie. Steve Zahn does a good job of turning from the Mr. Magoo to a cracked out Rambo. I didn't expect the ending but the movie didn't really explain how the couple was found out, via camera mode. It does have parts that drag on a bit and there is one scene where the CGI is just awful but all and all, it's worth the rental.

Cliff (Steve Zahn) and Cydney (Milla Jovovich), are on their honeymoon headed to an 11-mile hiking trail that takes them into the secluded beaches of Hawaii. Along the way, the meet a group of girls talking on the phone to their father about a murderer on the loose who's just killed a newlywed couple on Oahu. The suspect is a young white couple. When they meet a Nick (Timothy Olyphant), along their route, at first they are leery of his help across a treacherous cliff. Again they meet up with Nick and his girlfriend Gina (Kiele Sanchez), and even though the foursome want to trust each other, they start to think the worst of each other as the trip carries on.
