Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.

I remember seeing this movie several years ago and thinking nothing of it, I felt it was gonna be another cheesy teen movie with inane dialog and cliché moments of romance and humor. But low and behold, I was proved wrong. It may not have an award winning screenplay, but the dialog and plot along with some acting performances are decent enough to make the film entertaining than it actually is. What won me over was the cinematography and many will point out that the sound is one of the film's best assets. It was a treat to see this film back in the cinemas so I have no doubt in my mind that that same feeling can be had in the comfort of your own home. While watching this film, you almost feel as if you're in it itself and that's a feat that "Blue Crush" accomplishes because of it's superb atmosphere. It may have some cliché moments but "Blue Crush" is a nice movie to kick back to and enjoy. Not a classic by any means, it's entertaining for a nice little, hot summer afternoon.

At Hawaii's North Shore, athletically attractive Kate Bosworth (as Anne Marie Chadwick) trains for the Pipeline, and hangs with bikini-clad pals Michelle Rodriguez (as Eden) and Sanoe Lake (as Lena). They also work as local hotel maids, where Ms. Bosworth hooks up with football hunk Matthew Davis (as Matt Tollman), after showing his messy teammate how to dispose of a condom. This causes some friction with the islanders. Boswell also worries about little sister Mika Boorem (as Penny) who is mixing it up with an older crowd. John Stockwell's "Blue Crush" combines the sports surfing and girl-watching, but the story lacks a good amount of imagination.**** Blue Crush (8/8/02) John Stockwell ~ Kate Bosworth, Matthew Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Mika Boorem

The rather cute story of some surfer chick/bums, perpetually broke, living the dream in Hawaii. One of them is a former competitor and champion. But she hit bottom, literally, and can't get on the bike again. So that's the plot. Get her back in competitive women's surfing.She and her two friends work as maids in one of the hotels. She has a younger sister who goes to a local school, and generally acts up. But she's a cutie, too. They all are, basically. So it's around February, and the NFL Pro Bowlers come to town. There's the QB and his lineman, presumably from his own team. The QB sort of looks the part, because QBs generally are not that built. They're not all Terry Bradshaw. And the offensive lineman sometimes can have a belly and still be all-Pro - think Larry Allen. So I found the casting just barely believable in that. And she and the QB sort of hit it off. And eventually she offers, with the help of her friends, to teach them how to surf.It's a comic scene after scene as they learn to surf. But the point is to make the payoff. She goes to his hotel room, and he practically propositions her with a wad of bills. But she takes it home, pays the rent, etc, and we're on to the competition. Of course, she starts having sex with the QB, too. But it's for love, not the money. Certainly not any suggestion of actual marriage.The heart of the story is the competition. She has to get over her fear. She has to brave a number of waves. And of course - she wins in the end, gets the sponsorship deals, etc. That is success.The film really, that is, didn't have much of a story to tell. The story really was surfing itself, a sort of lifestyle, and that people would devote time to this, and to the competitions. The Pro Bowl backstory, while providing the 'love interest' only served to show their interest in this thing called - surfing.Despite surfers complaining that it wasn't just one big wave ride after another in this film, the film, nonetheless, is all about surfing - because it really is not about anything else. It's light-hearted. The actresses are almost always smiling, which is attractive. It's just a film with a lot of cute scenes, and at least one 'gross-out' scene. And when they do hit the water, there are some clever following shots right into the water showing the 'washing machine' that grabs the surfers who fall.I suppose the actresses have other commitments. I suppose Rodriquez will be about done with, Lost (which looks on the verge of getting cancelled). And I'm sure many would wonder, even though 'Penny' is now much older and very different, if the three other actresses are looking to reprise a Blue Crush II?

Unless you really enjoy B movies or surfing then this movie isn't worth your time. I admit there were some neat surfing shots but outside of that this film had no redeeming qualities. The plot, if you can call it one, revolves around surfer phenom Anne Marie (Kate Bosworth) making a comeback to the sport after nearly drowning, she hit her head on a rock, during a competition. The film tracks Anne Marie as she prepares for a major surfing competition while trying to overcome lasting psychological effects of her near drowning experience. Overall, the plot was filled with clichés and the acting was bad to, at times, atrocious. Even the solid surfing scenes weren't enough to pique my interest. So unless you want to watch relatively unappealing (sorry, Kate) women surfing then I'd pass on this movie.
