Unexpected Fun In the Sun

"Blue Crush" is one of those flicks that you see at the DVD counter and you want to buy because it looks cool, but the happy-go-lucky smiles on the box make you think it's just another run-of-the-mill teenybopper flick. That's what I thought, and, man, was I surprised. "Blue Crush" introduces you to the wonderful world of "girl surfers" without being silly, smarmy or annoying. In fact, it gives you a pretty good look into the hellish life of a young lady, her baby sister, and a couple of friends just trying to make ends meet. They live in a rathole with a leaky roof and they're always strapped for cash. Strapped, that is, until a handsome quarterback strolls into the main character's life. All the while, she's trying to make it as a pro surfer.

The movie manages to give you some insight into the world of surfing without overwhelming you with information. The love story does get a little cheesey about mid-way through the flick, but it's handled well overall. The main character's love for her kid sister is evident throughout this flick, and you end up cheering for our young heroine based on her will to be the best.

This is an engaging and fun story about facing your fears and not giving up on your dreams. It's good for most of the family, though there is a little language and one slightly intimate scene. I'd say kids under 12 shoudn't watch this, but that's just me.

Personally, I liked this movie a lot. It held my attention, the characters captured my heart, and the cinematography is fantastic. I highly recommend this surprising film.
