This film inspired me to ride the wind...
22 December 1998 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film inspired me to windsurf, and for that I can only be eternally grateful. It also has some really nice shots of Nicole Kidman's butt. If you are not an Aussie the rest might not be of too much interest, but does that wind ever blow over in Perth!
