The Caldwells are all grown up. Quite literally, we've watched stars Katie Volding and Jake Dinwiddie grow up on screen throughout this franchise. Above are images of the two stars as they appeared in the original Au Pair. Below are the two in the latest film, Au Pair 3: Adventure in Paradise, premiering on ABC Family next Sunday, March 15th at 8/7c. Also reprising their roles in this new film are Gregory Harrison and Heidi Lenhart, pictured on the right:
If you haven't seen the first two films, don't worry, as you'll easily be able to pick up with the Caldwells in this new installment (You can also catch up with the first 2 films on the 15th beginning at 4/3c with Au Pair, followed by Au Pair 2: The Fairy Tale Continues at 6/5c)!
Katie has now finished her first year of college and Alex has just graduated high school. The two have matured into relatively well-adjusted children of billionaires and summer is now upon us.
In honor of the family's reunion, patriarch Oliver decides to whisk everyone away on a tropical vacation to Puerto Rico. Though the kids have outgrown their prank-ish ways of Au Pair Film's past, the vacation is not without a few hitches. Both Katie and Alex are struggling to create their own identities outside of what their father has laid out for them. Additionally, Jenny is stressed with a new baby as the family's au pair abruptly quits before the vacation. Finally, Oliver is faced with a possible coup at work, due to a difference in opinion on a new, enviro-friendly direction for the company.
Also joining the family on vacation is Ariana, Katie's best friend from college, whom Alex is immediately taken by, though it's unclear whether Ariana reciprocates those feelings. Ariana is also carrying a little secret of her own which threatens to destroy the entire vacation!
So...can the Caldwells overcome all of these problems and still experience the paradise that is Puerto Rico? Watch Au Pair 3: Adventure in Paradise on ABC Family Sunday, March 15th at 8/7c and find out!
