Aloha movie quotes tells the story of one man who is offered second chances both personally and professionally, though he might not be ready to take them. The romantic comedy was written and directed by Cameron Crowe. Aloha opened in theaters on May 29, 2015.

In Aloha, defense contractor Brian Gilcrest (Bradley Cooper) finds himself out of work after a mistake causes the military to lose a huge project. So when Brian gets a call that former employer Caron Welch (Bill Murray) wants him back, Brian jumps at the opportunity. That does, however, mean going back to Hawaii where, along with Colonel Lacy (Danny McBride), Brian spent a good deal of time, and even fell in love.

In Hawaii, Brian reunites with lost love Tracy (Rachel McAdams), who is now seemingly happily married to Woody (John Krasinski). But Brian cannot get over unresolved issues with Tracy, despite her urging to move on with his life. This becomes especially important as Brian's Air Force liaison in Hawaii, Allison Ng (Emma Stone), and he have some good chemistry going on.

Aloha says hello to theaters already showing other films such as San Andreas, Tomorrowland, Poltergeist 2015 Mad Max: Fury Road, Pitch Perfect 2 and Playing It Cool.
