    Someone else's vacation photos are never much fun to watch, and this beach party is a drag for onlookers. show more

    From "Hands on a Hard Body" to an 89-minute ogling of another hard body: It boggles the mind that 11 years after his engrossing documentary about an endurance competition to win a truck in Longview, Texas, filmmaker Bindler has channeled his talents into this regrettable comedy. show more

    You can stick around for the only funny line, which involves a breakfast burrito, but the smart surfer would head for the hills and Willie's goat ranch. show more

    The film is awash in doobies and breasts, clichéd cinematic language and clumsy exposition. It's reminiscent of the stoner-culture movies of the late '60s and early '70s but without the naive fun. show more

    Lacking even the train-wreck appeal of a brainless stoner comedy like "Half-Baked," Surfer, Dude is a numbing experience at just 89 minutes. show more

    You know dudes, you say this movie is a wipeout, you're the ones watching other people's movies man. Get out and make a movie on a budget and have some fun in the process, along with being J.K Livin's first film and then start talkin. I'm headed out to hit some waves until I go back to Dallas, but you have to realize what this movie is all about before you go and just wash it down with reviews like that. This movie in my opinion is great, true, real down to earth and just plain FUN. is my email if anyone wants my synopsis on it. Til then take it easy
