    Bosworth is a star in the making, but even she can't outshine the surfing footage, which is flat-out spectacular. show more

    Be warned: Although it was filmed on the North Shore of Hawaii's Oahu island, this is a surf movie, not a surfing movie. As for the empowered-girl premise -- well, the kids may not notice, but Blue Crush is about as progressive as a Virginia Slims commercial. show more

    Don't forget the waves. They're the stars of this show, and Blue Crush smartly never lets you forget it. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Not the sanctioned wet T-shirt contest you might be anticipating. The Pacific is the hottest body here. And director John Stockwell handles the frivolous material with an integrity that I have to admit I found disappointing. The movie isn't nearly dumb enough to be much beach fun. show more
