- Towards the middle of the film, when Jamie and Emily are sitting on the hood of the car eating ice cream, the amount of ice cream on Emily's cone fluctuates with each camera angle, even at one point in three consecutive shots, going from almost full, to almost gone, back to almost full again.

There’s a sense that, in trying to add humor and cinema-friendly “touches” to her narrative, Gleason occasionally takes us too far from reality and, during those times, the movies loses its focus on the 16-year old protagonist, Jamie Winkle (Joey King).
While “Summer” is lightly amusing, here and there, it treads heavily on some pretty slippery ground. Gleason makes all the checkpoints that the plot passes through feel perfunctory.
There's nothing terribly new under the sun about any of what transpires. But writer-director Gleason has crafted a film that manages to be simultaneously funny, touching and sensitive.
