Surf’s Up – Surf Cam Documentary

SURF’S UP is an animated action-comedy that delves behind the scenes of the high-octane world of competitive surfing. The film profiles teenage Rockhopper penguin Cody Maverick (Shia LaBeouf), an up-and-coming surfer, as he enters his first pro competition. Followed by a camera crew to document his experiences, Cody leaves his family and home in Shiverpool, Antarctica to travel to Pen Gu Island for the Big Z Memorial Surf Off. Along the way, Cody meets Sheboygan surfer Chicken Joe (Jon Heder), famous surf promoter Reggie Belafonte (James Woods), surf talent scout Mikey Abromowitz (Mario Cantone), and spirited lifeguard Lani Aliikai (Zooey Deschanel), all of whom recognize Cody’s passion for surfing, even if it’s a bit misguided at times. 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 (Jeff Bridges), Cody begins to find his own way, and discovers that a true winner isn’t always the one who comes in first.

    Very nice documentary movie based on interviews, I very like that animated characters, especially penguins, talking and looking into the camera, at that moment, they respond really like humans. And those calls like: Bros, dudes …. without mistake. That's something what Happy Feet (1,2) misses. Well done!

    Best movie reminds me of good times with my sister, we lived near a lake and we would Re-enact the Arnold and lonnie scenes when Arnold is “drowning” we where crazy kids.

    This is the only animated mockumentary… how sad. (And no, Waltz With Bashir (2008) does not count. That is the first animated DOCUMENTARY, not mockumentary).
