Luckily with only a couple of profanities and some moments of peril, this sun-baked script will likely meet the expectations of most family viewers. Foster's performance as the panic-driven author who learns to live the life she's only imagined and Butler's duel roles as dad and champion are both engaging. However, the bright spot in all this sea and sand is Breslin as Nim, who's resourceful and intrepid without being a bratty know-it-all. Competent enough to plug in the solar panels and reestablish power after a downpour, she still needs her father's care and the intervention of an adult -- even a frightfully inept one.
