Not a "totally awesome" or "totally tubular" in sight. Totally bogus dude!!

Based on a true story means that the film doesn't have to rely too much on original writing, which is lucky for this movie. While the surfing scenes are good, the story does tend to limp along a little. There is plenty of emotion in the movie but it is glossed up and laid on thick. TV matinee material.
