Review Because it is a computer-generated cartoon about penguins, Surf's Up is going to be compared to Happy Feet. But where George Miller's surprise Oscar winner wrung a plangent and disturbing eco-horror subtext out of its waddling subjects' adventures, Surf's Up - which is better described as March of the Penguins filtered through Dogtown and Z Boys - aims merely to please. For the most part, it succeeds...Shia LaBeouf voices Cody, an unheralded entrant in the annual Penguin World Surfing Championship. The idea is that we're watching a documentary about his experience, complete with talking-head interviews, archival footage, expository inserts and visible boom mics. Surf's Up amusingly honours its framing device for about 30 minutes, at which point it thankfully shifts into more conventional storytelling rhythms...Half-cocked formal conceit aside, Surf's Up reinvents no wheels, but rolls along smoothly nonetheless.

Review Fresh from marching and dancing their way to Oscar glory in March of the Penguins and Happy Feet, respectively, the Antarctic's most "bankable" birds "hang ten" in Surf's Up, a reasonably clever animated mockumentary directed by two Disney veterans, Ash Brannon (Toy Story 2) and Chris Buck (Tarzan). Amusing but never particularly engaging, this overly long and often listlessly paced send-up of reality television and extreme sports competitions generates just enough scattered laughs to make it a passably entertaining family film...While the filmmakers deserve credit for tweaking the formal/narrative template used by most animated films, their adherence to the mockumentary format results in an episodic, disjointed coming-of-age story...The filmmakers' good-natured send-up of reality television is often witty, and some of the computer animated surfing scenes are duly spectacular, but overall, Surf's Up is a bit of a "wipe out."

Quotes
Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer Not only are LaBeouf and Bridges terrific, but Jon Heder is hilarious as surfing fowl Chicken Joe.
Chris Kaltenbach, Baltimore Sun Best of all is Jeff Bridges as the voice of Geek, a laid-back philosopher-penguin who becomes Cody's low-key guru...
James Berardinelli's ReelViews If you have to see one penguin movie, this is it.
Michelle Kung, Boston Globe The most colorful of the penguin 'toons to date, both figuratively and literally.
Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle ...entertaining...a nice surprise, and the rare mainstream American kid film.
