I love my surfing movies when they are done right and Blue Crush could have been one of the better ones in the genre. There are some incredible money shots when it comes to getting inside the barrels of the waves as well as general scenic shots too. But ultimately what knocks this down is the "love story". It has one of the weakest "romances" I've ever seen on film. There is absolutely no chemistry between Kate Bosworth and the dude. Zero. That isn't my issue believe it or not. It's that they dwell so much on them "falling in love" that it brings the movie to a screeching halt. They absolutely should have ditched this plot point all together. If the writer and / or director was intent on keeping the romance angle in the movie, there are much better ways to go about it to get your point across. Just look at Invincible which did it the right way. They hinted at the romance between the two leads and let the rest of the "sports" plot carry the movie.

There is enough thrills and amazing photography as I mentioned earlier to warrant a Rent for sure. But this isn't even in the Top 10 Surfing Movies of All Time. True dat!
