Worst. Synopsis. Ever.

Synopsis for The Guardian:
After losing his crew in a fatal crash, legendary Rescue Swimmer, Ben Randall, is sent to teach at A School, an elite training program for Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers. Wrestling with the loss of his crew members, he throws himself into teaching, turning the program upside down with his unorthodox training methods. While there, he encounters a young, cocky swim champ, Jake Fischer, who is driven to be the best. During training, Randall helps mold Jake's character, combining his raw talent with the heart and dedication required of a Rescue Swimmer. Upon graduation, Jake follows Randall to Kodiak, Alaska, where they face the inherent dangers of the Bering Sea. In his initial solo rescue, Jake learns firsthand from Randall, the true meaning of heroism and sacrifice, echoing the Swimmer's motto--So Others May Live!
I don't think they could jam another cliché in there if they tried. This movie promises to combine myriad stale flavors of awful to create a whole new standard for awfulness.

you seem to really be wrestling with this movie, Lee.
That's because I'm a young, cocky LJ champ who's driven to be the best.
played by ashton kutcher? i'm almost intrigued by the total shoddiness of that movie description. i might have to rent it.
That made me feel a little sick.

seriously

in the previews:
"Expect the unexpected, boys"

THAT'S the best line you could come up with?

I hate movies with poor dialogue.

Re: seriously

Interesting how guys like Costner and Kutcher always manage to end up with weak scripts, too. I guess water seeks its own level.
It's like a bot wrote the synopsis. Gag. :-P

Go see it, Lee!
"In his initial solo rescue, Jake learns firsthand from Randall,"

How could he possibly learn firsthand, during a solo rescue? This is a logical impossibility.

Either he is alone or he is with someone. In this universe one cannot be both.
You are so right—I hadn't even considered that!
