Surf's Up

4 1/2 stars

Birds Fly...Penguins Soar!

This story follows a teenage rock hopper penguin named Cody Maverick from his hometown of Shiverpool, Antarctica, where all of the other penguins think he's nothing but a surfing fool, to the "Big Z Memorial Surf Off" on Pen Gu Island. Young Cody is determined to win the most important competition in the world of penguin surfing in honor of "Big Z," a deceased surfing legend whom he has idolized since childhood. But the waves in Pen Gu are different than in Shiverpool, and the competition is steep. The current champ, egotistical Tank Evans, isn't just about to let this little penguin knock him from first place without a fight. When Cody wipes out and encounters Geek, a recluse aging former surfer, living in the jungle, he learns some important lessons about life and surfing, and even teaches Geek a thing or two.

Megan's Movie Review:
Okay, so we bought this movie when it came out on dvd a while ago and watched it and all I can remember is that I didn't like it. I must have been in a bad mood or something, because we just watched it again last night and I absolutely LOVED it!! Shia LaBeouf is soo funny in this and I didn't realized how many big actors there were in this movie. There were so many funny parts in this movie and if you listen to everything, it really is quite a hoot. Some of the sayings I liked were "Pecker face?..." or "He's a dirty trash can filled with poo." I can't believe that I didn't enjoy it the first time. Great movie, loved it! I'm so glad that we have it haha and I think this will be a good movie for our kids. It's a good story about how to never give up and to follow your dreams. Have confidence in yourself!

You should see this if you haven't yet.
