Once a sleepy little town, in the past few years more and more tourists have discovered Stoupa. There are around 20 restaurants lining the main road behind the beach, a few small hotels, and many rental houses. Besides Greek tourists, who come mostly in August, Britons and Germans are the most frequent visitors. There are a few Dutch holidaysmakers, but because there is only one flight into Kalamata, the local airport, once a week from Holland, their numbers are limited.

Stoupa is located in an area of Greece called Mani. Just down the road (approximately 4 km) from Stoupa is the village of Agios Nikolaos (also known as Selinitsa), a working fishing village which also has a number of restaurants and guest houses but which currently attracts fewer tourists than Stoupa. Above Agios Nikolaos is the lovely small village called Riglia. Other places in the Mani region include Itilo (32 km), Limeni (36 km) and Aeropoli (40 km).

There are many beaches and coves around the area including Stoupa Beach, which is the most popular and has a good beginners snorkeling site at the end of the beach. Over the hill is Kalogria Beach, with its turquoise waters and rich marine life, as well as plenty of facilities such as volleyball, and a handful of bars.

Garrett (Long) is still nursing the wounds from a recent breakup when he meets Erin (Barrymore), an unflinchingly honest girl with a big talent for bar trivia.

It was supposed to be a summer fling, but as fall approaches and Erin returns to San Francisco, the spark is still there. Subsequently dividing his days between working and hitting the bars with best friends Box (Jason Sudeikis) and Dan (Charlie Day), Garrett drops everything whenever Erin calls. The more Garrett's phone rings, the more his pals begin to suspect that their drinking buddy is taking the relationship a little too seriously. And they're not the only ones; Erin's sister, Corrine (Christina Applegate), is keen to ensure that her smitten sibling doesn't repeat the mistakes of her past, and she makes no attempts to sugarcoat the fact that she disapproves of the coast-to-coast romance. But the heart wants what the heart wants, and as the texting becomes more intense, both Garrett and Erin start to suspect that their summer fling may just be the real thing.
