Review:
Apparently, America's young people like penguins -a lot; they also like surfing. So, the keen minds in the motion picture industry bring these two together in Surf's Up, an enjoyable 85 minutes of family entertainment. The plot is that of countless sports movies: a young hotshot learns the hard way that friendship and pure love of the game matter more than winning. Still, the gags are fun, the endearing characters are well-voiced by those including Shia LaBeouf, Jon Heder, Zooey Deschanel and Jeff Bridges, and the animation is first-rate. For those interested in the making of animated features, there are some worthwhile extra features on the disc. Most families will be content to rent rather than own this one.
