Meanwhile, Smith, who hails from Edmonton, Alberta, keeps it casual in a pink shirt and khaki pants. But let’s face it: it’s their million dollar smiles that really get us excited as we watch all the action unfold in paradise.
Their big smiles are present once again in ET’s second exclusive image. Hutton looks positively radiant standing next to Smith in front of an impressive waterfall. While the context of the scene is unclear, we hope that your characters will find themselves on an adventure, surrounded by lush nature and picturesque beauty.
ET can confirm that Hutton plays Paige, a television host who steps in to direct a popular travel show after the original host resigns. Paige travels to Hawaii to start filming and, unbeknownst to her, the network has also hired Ben (Smith), who likes to push boundaries and live to the extreme. As the co-hosts clash over their opposing views on how the show should be produced, they struggle with the fact that not only do they need each other to advance their careers, they also find that they balance out. each other, on and off the screen. .
Thanks to some additional first-look photos, it looks like there will be a lot of love, fun, and laughter throughout the film. From dancing, riding an ATV, sipping ice-cold drinks with little umbrellas, and even eating some pineapple skin, hearts can confidently celebrate their favorite on-screen duo teaming up for another heartwarming love story.
