Plot Summary

Surf's Up is an animated feature that goes behind the scenes of the high-octane world of competitive penguin surfing. The film profiles Cody Maverick, an up-and-coming surfer as he enters his first pro competition. Inspired by his hero, a legendary wave rider named Big Z, Cody leaves his family and his town of Shiverpool, Antarctica to travel to Pen Gu Island for the Big Z Memorial Surf Off. Cody believes that winning will bring him the admiration and respect he desires. But when he unexpectedly comes face to face with a washed up old surfer named The Geek, Cody begins to understand that the greatest champion isn?t always the one who comes in first.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Not a comedy tsunami, just consistent ripples of laughs and good vibes. – TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Not exactly awash in cleverness, but it is good clean fun for the family. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The movie has just as much in common with This Is Spinal Tap or even Dogtown and Z-Boys as the cutesy and formulaic films that typically get churned out this time of year. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 9, 2007

Rotten: The real reason Surf's Up is so aggravating is that it's more concerned with sucking up to adults than it is to enchanting their children. – Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph, Jun 24, 2010
