Mcconaughey’s acting skills are beyond this role. I didn’t expect much from this movie but I got a lot out of it. Surfer, dude is like the guy in school that you know you’ll never have something in common but respect his different way of seeing things. Add suffers what can only be described as massive withdraws coupled with delusional psychosis. A film doesn’t have to have academy award-winning performances to do that for you. And think about your life for a minute.
I personally know surfers who are lawyers, doctors, business owners, firefighters, and many other professional occupations, yet this movie portrays surfers as a bunch of loser stoners.

This movie is pure entertainment. That is a no-brainer.
But for those of you on the fence about this film, just watch it, rent it, download it, whatever, at least decide on your own. Here is this movie and here I am, someone who liked it. Surfer Dude lacks all logic and structure. The good parts of our world. Of all the strides the image of surfing has made, this movie sets us all back.

He is the free man, part of and living with nature. Cancel reply Enter your comment here The movie starts out giving you the gut feeling that they are faking it, that they are some how cheesing it up to melllow fun of a horrible stereotype. It will come to you some day, in the TV, when you are back from work, tired and in need of something laid back. Other sources say it came from Encino Man which I did see, but that would be awfully random if I got it from there.
I downloaded this movie recently as part of an attempt to chart Matthew McConaughey’s movie career. The IMDb rating definitely made me think twice melloww since the title suggested harmless banter at worst, I switched it on in the background.

hrashing But then are there really movie quotes that I actually use in casual conversations? This film reminded me of the Camus novel called the Stranger. October 25, at Great songs by Xavier Rudd and Mishka.
I will no longer waste my life on truly horrendous trash like Surfer Dude. Rather than given an insightful view of a surfer’s life, the audience is simply subjected to an hour and a half of what McConaughey THINKS is a lifestyle that everyone will fall in love with.

Could have had more surfing.

I guess I would have eventually figured it out.
