something's bogus, dudes,
This review is from: Surfer Dude (DVD)
This is a simple movie, not made to be dissected, competed with or watched for the plot or action. rather, the film provides a taste of SoCal that is partly mythical and partly disappearing and for that alone i loved it.
there's something wholesome about the film, left me feeling good which does not happen too often for me, and almost never with the large commercial blockbusters. to see Willie Nelson's smile, that alone was worth waiting for. mcConnaughey does a good job, as does Harrelson & most of the crew.
in other words, this is not about surfing. it is about friendship and about knowing what you love.

I know that I'm responding to a 5 year old post, but being from San Diego and seeing some of my favorite waterholes and "secret" coves and surf spots blasted all over the net for every Dbag, tourist and newb to ruin really forces me to agree wholeheartedly. This movie captures a fleeting moment, just like cameras WITH FILM used to do. Excellent movie for that very specific feeling of warmth, laughter and a bit of nostalgia that you just might not recognize if you've never been there (or through a So. Cal summer at Warm Waters or Trussels).
