    I have to say, i was STONED when i saw this flick, and i had a blast! Hollywood's puttin' out a TON of garbage but you can be entertained for 88 minutes with Surfer, Dude. Just remember, puff puff pass before you get inside, then enjoy the ride!!!

    Much rather see McConaughey in this then anything else he has done other than dazed and confused of course.

  1. 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.

    Someone else's vacation photos are never much fun to watch, and this beach party is a drag for onlookers.

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