    Someone else's vacation photos are never much fun to watch, and this beach party is a drag for onlookers.
  2. From "Hands on a Hard Body" to an 89-minute ogling of another hard body: It boggles the mind that 11 years after his engrossing documentary about an endurance competition to win a truck in Longview, Texas, filmmaker Bindler has channeled his talents into this regrettable comedy.

    You can stick around for the only funny line, which involves a breakfast burrito, but the smart surfer would head for the hills and Willie's goat ranch.

    The film is awash in doobies and breasts, clich├ęd cinematic language and clumsy exposition. It's reminiscent of the stoner-culture movies of the late '60s and early '70s but without the naive fun.

    Lacking even the train-wreck appeal of a brainless stoner comedy like "Half-Baked," Surfer, Dude is a numbing experience at just 89 minutes.

    Hapless, laughless movie.

    This is like a late night best friends camping in a living room kind of movie, with a lot of good laughs and good vibes. Although this movie is only an hour and a half long, its no wonder. There isn't much to tell. The constant use of alcohol and marijuana fits the main characters profile. Seeing Willie Nelson as a goat herder was hilarious. The girls were pretty hot. Like I said: Not much to tell. Decent movie. Full Review »

    Hollywod makes crap all the time, and we are tired of the Johnny Deeps and the Pitts and Angiulinas ,first it is good to see a new cast, bew faces. The movie has flaws , ok , it seems to be made on a tight budget , some overseas locations would ve increase the rate. But it`s too hard to digest for these days` middle class serial guy o woman paying a mortgage , but if you ever had the chance to be inside a group of surfers and interact with them , well , you can no ask for more than waves, reggae,flirting , muscles and pot . The movie about surfers that you expect, `9 to 5 dude` doesn`t exist and it wont exist. Full Review »
