I liked Blue Crush, except one thing about this movie disturbed me...

    I may be in the minority on this one, but the movie was borderline overboard with the childrens ages IMO. The main surfer girl, not sure how old IRL she is, but she looked like a 16 year old girl going out with this 20+ year old football player and it did not look right IMO.

    Then you have her younger sister who is hanging out at this party with these guys arms wrapped around her like some kind of hoochie mamma.

    I dunno, I liked the movie, but that disturbed me a bit...

    The main thing that disturbed me about this movie was the constant quick cuts of the lead's (Kate Bosworth) head slamming into the rock. I actually had to cover my eyes. Give me Freddy or Jason any day of the week.

    I have this same problem with Cast Away...

    I don't know where you grew up, but all the 16-year-old girls in my high school dated college guys. They wouldn't be caught dead being seen with a high schooler.

    Ken , yes she did, but still, I dunno, I think it was just the way I portrayed it perhaps.

    when Beach Blanket Bimbo movies are subject to pc reservations, sigh...
    I also read that the obvious CGI placement of an actress' head on a real surfer's body was off-putting.
    Endless summer with T&A? I think not.
    tho I hear the music is good, even without Dick Dale [​IMG]

    CGI and age issues aside, this film was VERY beautifully shot, and VERY beautiful to watch. I thought the story was well written, somewhat cliche but not too bad. We should give credit to the people behind this film for actually getting in the water for 75% of the movie.....They pulled it off whithout a hitch. I felt like I was surfing through the pipe with them......Well, not really, but its the closest I will ever get [​IMG]

    Isn't it illegal for College Guys dating girls under
    the age of 18? I could be wrong but something just doesnt
    seem right here. I also dont think the parents would approve
    too of some older guy dating their kid. It sounds kinda
    freaky to me to be honest.
