Product Overview

Longboarding soul surfer Steve Addington (Matthew McConaughey) returns to Malibu for the summer to find his cool hometown vibe corrupted. New sponsorship demands Addington to expand into Virtual Reality Video Games and Reality TV. Unwilling to participate in this new digital reality, he chooses to spend his summer surfing his home break. But in a twist-of-fate, the waves go flat. Out of money, his expense accounts cancelled, and betrayed by his buddies, Addington is backed into a harsh corner.

Aided by his manager (Woody Harrelson), his mentor (Scott Glenn), his guardian angel (Willie Nelson), and his summer lover (Alexie Gilmore), Addington has a chance of keeping his cool, but it's not going to be easy. The dude needs a wave, and there's never been a drought like this.

Editors Note
Note Matthew McConaughey stars in this film as Steve Addington, an A-list surfer who comes home to find Malibu has changed. Gone are the times when surfers lived just to catch a wave; now it's all about sponsorships, virtual reality, and money, but all Steve wants to do is surf. But when the West Coast waves turn flat, Steve's options are gone with the tide. SURFER, DUDE also stars Woody Harrelson, Scott Glenn, Willie Nelson, and Alexie Gilmore.

Review One of the first sounds introduced in the comedy "Surfer, Dude" is a bongo. I couldn't dream of a more ideal way to start off a Matthew McConaughey vanity film than with a light bongo beat, guaranteeing the picture holds 100% McConaugheyness and that, at some point, the actor was nude during the scoring session. I wish the finished product was as amusing as the behind-the-scenes pot-fueled merriment I imagine took place during production..."Surfer, Dude" lives up its title. This is a relaxed comedy, steeped in meaty trails of smoke, ideal blue waves, and "bummer, bra" themes of selling out to the man. Originating from McConaughey's production company, the picture is a love letter to its star, parading the actor around shirtless, turning him into a heroic surf legend, and making the character a sex magnet...It's a sluggish performance from McConaughey here, who revels in the baked luster of Steve (Willie Nelson cameos as his drug dealer), stumbling around the film falling into misadventures with producers, groupies, and his brotherhood of surfers..."Surfer, Dude" doesn't click as a satire or a broadly painted comedy, hoping to make sun-baked principles something to embrace, but it renders the film a listless muddle. Reaching for a drowsy consistency, McConaughey becomes lost inside his own motion picture, and while I can appreciate the party atmosphere, luscious waves, and aim to live life on the simplest of terms, the picture needed a stronger script and a more vibrant edge to find its true inner dude.
