Action, Drama
Would it be too hokey to call this entertaining final-days-of-summer flick as refreshing as a face full of sea mist? Maybe, but so be it. Not unlike a Gidget Goes Girl Power, this charmingly modest film—directed by John Stockwell, on the heels of his Crazy/Beautiful—concerns three surfing pals who live for the waves and who just happen to be young, attractive women. Budding blonde star of the moment Kate Bosworth plays Anne Marie, who hangs 10 with roomies Michelle Rodriquez (Girlfight) and Sanoe Lake. Tucson actress Mika Boorem plays Anne Marie’s little sister. The Maui-based wave-crashing action is exciting and photogenic, and, duh, so are the women. Amid this summer of high-tech chases, big-time explosions and record-breaking box office, the fact that the major plot conflict in this movie comes down to something as simple and dramatic as a surfing contest is, well, refreshing.
