Storyline

Brice, a motherless super rich 30-year-old teenager fancies himself a trendy surfer. Only he never stepped out of Nice where the sea remains desperately calm and flat. Brice awaits a giant wave like the one he knows happened in 1979. In the meantime, what he lacks in technique he successfully hides and compensates in style. Yellow T-shirt, yellow hair, yellow parties, he created his own little world where he "axes" people. One morning, his father is sent to jail and "Brice from Nice" is left penniless. He first decides to find out about that thing called "work" (one of his friends does it) at a local restaurant, but then decides robbing a bank is way easier. While escaping after a failed attempt, he meets Marius who needs money for foot surgery. His new best buddy has an idea how to get it: all it takes is for Brice to win the $100,000 prize at the "world underground surf cup". It would "completely" help if Brice had surfed at least once in his life. Written by Greg Philip <greg_philip@hotmail.com>

Bad & Annoying Movie
18 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was awful. I mean I thought since it was a foreign film it would be good. I guess we can't judge before we know. Seriously, what was with those annoying songs? Especially that one where it went give me the tax. Come on, get some better lyrics. I couldn't stand his personality. It was way to cocky and superficial. Well, I didn't enjoy that movie, very disappointed by its soundtrack. Oh, and another thing what was with that odd relationship with that guy with the feet and the girl with the ears. I just thought this movies was really ridiculous for my taste. It wasn't that funny in my opinion. Just really, really, annoying. People should really learn when to stop in movies. Sometimes they just take it way to far, where there is a bridge of comedy and way to far where it just hits the point of stupidity and annoyance.
