Movie Review: ***Surf's Up (2007)
This is a movie about penguins surfing, but more importantly about reaching for your dream. It features two penguins geared for a surf competition, Cody Maverick (Shia LeBeouf) and Tank Evans (Diedrich Bader). Tank is the current champion. We also have a girl interest, Lani Aliikai (Zooey Deschanel.) and her uncle, the old surfing sage, Zeke Topanga (Jef Bridges) and a crazy chicken (Jon Heder). Makes for a very wild ride. The movie is often presented with a documentary type style, which I really didn't care for because it seems to get in the way of telling the story.
