Christopher Briney's take on TSITP's storyline

In an interview with InStyle, Christopher Briney said the storyline is based on "all unreal expectations" and called it "ridiculous". The actor jokingly said, "Let's face it. Falling in love with your mom's friend's kids every summer at the beach? It's all pretty unreal, right? Don't expect Stanford applications and epic love triangles to be your typical summer routine."

Briney's playful teasing extends to his character, Conrad, and his college aspirations. "Stanford might be a stretch," he joked, "but hey, maybe Conrad's got a hidden talent for sandcastle building!"

"I remember walking around the set one day, and I stumbled across this music box. I opened it and didn't expect anything really, and it just started playing this beautiful music.
