From National Lampoon, the masters of raunchy comedy, comes a summer tale of beers, babes, and bros! In the surf town of Ventura, California, JD's surf board is stolen by a surfer from Los Angeles...a crime that cannot go unpunished. Gathering his friends and the local surf hero, Mike Mooney, they take a road trip to LA to get the surfboard back, then return to Ventura for the wildest summer party ever! Written by
I thought it was very good. Not over the top. A piece of ART. Not too full of stupid gag humour, antics, and unrealistic conversations. I Felt it struck a chord on my heart. I wish it didn't carry the national lampoon name, because everyone who goes into it with the national lampoon in mind will be disappointed. I guess I can see that the characters are hard to relate to for most people. But still they feel real and true. They are honourable and thoughtful.
It is certainly not the best movie ever, I think it is out of its time. Maybe to be made earlier or later and this thing would be more respected. anyway The actors did a good job. I Think it sort of has a dazed and confused; empire records vibe. Is it missing that extra push to put it into cult classic history? you decide. Anyway I plan to watch it with my son someday when he is older.
I feel the other reviews are a little too hard on a good story. Van wilder, project X, super-bad, etc. have given us this weird expectation in our party movies. We want to see the loser spin out of control on the best night of this life and shlt his pants and blow up his parents house. This is not that story. It is a real story that stays with reality. Fun people doing the right thing.
