Surf’s Up

Film, 2007

Hey! This movie is actually really funny! If you (deservedly) hate garbage like Shrek, you should really give this a chance. It’s a fine story for kids, with a good ending, and it’s really, really funny. They managed to inject some looseness into the rigid world of computer animation by presenting it as a documentary and incorporating a lot of (assumably) improvised dialogue, with lots of interesting choices for actors (Jeff Bridges and Zooey Deschanel). The worst part is the horrible pop-music montages, but they pass quickly enough. The animation if pretty boring, but more than technically passable. 3
