About the Movie

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: Many of the riffs in the mock documentary might be lost on little tykes, but the film's feel-good message of perseverance, friendship and finding your own wave should be enjoyed by all. – Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times, Sep 20, 2007

Rotten: Maybe the next penguin flick will do more justice to the subject. How about going all grindhouse in Lesbian Vampire Penguins of the SS? – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Jul 16, 2008
