Shy 14-year-old Duncan goes on summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and her boyfriend's daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.
Steve Carell initially turned the movie down because he and his family go on vacation to his home state (Massachusetts) every Summer. However it was later discovered that the location of the film shoot was a short drive away from where Carell and his family vacationed, therefore he was able to accept the role.

Owen: You're fired!
Duncan: But I just...
Owen: You make a valid point. Welcome back. With benefits.
Susanna follows Duncan on her bike to the water park, yet on returning home she comes back with Duncan just with his bike.
