Not a comedy tsunami, just consistent ripples of laughs and good vibes.

It's fun for a while, but the script doesn't have the structure to sustain 85 minutes.

I commend Ash Brannon and Chris Buck's animated film, especially to those who have not yet reached the age of 10.

The real reason Surf's Up is so aggravating is that it's more concerned with sucking up to adults than it is to enchanting their children.

A happy 85 minutes, although it might have been a teensy bit happier, banishing all hint of repetition, at 75.

Cranked out to an hour and a half, it had me flapping my arms in irritation.

Audience Reviews for Surf's Up

½

A light and clever animated tale that's main riff is jazzing stereotypical character cliches a little. Qiick and bountiful one-liners keep attention from flagging even when the story itself is ho-hum.See if you think if Jeff Bridges is merely rehashing his The Dude character.
