Longboarding soul surfer Steve Addington (Matthew McConaughey) returns to Malibu for the summer to find his cool hometown vibe corrupted. New sponsorship demands Addington to expand into Virtual Reality Video Games and Reality TV. Unwilling to participate in this new digital reality, he chooses to spend his summer surfing his home break. But in a twist-of-fate, the waves go flat. Out of money, his expense accounts cancelled, and betrayed by his buddies, Addington is backed into a harsh corner. Aided by his manager (Woody Harrelson), his mentor (Scott Glenn), his guardian angel (Willie Nelson), and his summer lover (Alexie Gilmore), Addington has a chance of keeping his cool, but it’s not going to be easy. The dude needs a wave, and there’s never been a drought like this.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: [A] hapless, laughless movie.
Rotten: [A] lackluster vanity production.
Rotten: 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.
Rotten: Surfer, Dude is a bizarre throwback. It feels 25-30 years out of date and seems to be meant to be watched on VHS, oops, make that DVD, while stoned.
Love this movie
Total stoner movie. No offense =]
its such a good film, good vibes, good music. Not that popular for some reason.
Not many people know about this movie... but they should. I have honestly watched it 3 or 4 times, and it still entertains me. If you enjoy the idea of a surfing nature dude, then you will enjoy this movie.
