Long story short: amatuer girl surfer champion gets left arm chomped off by a shark, and learns to come to grips with it all. Based on a true story.

The cast features AnnaSophia Robb as Bethany Hamilton in a solid turn, and Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid as her parents. I can't really explain it, but I felt just sadness for Bethany as her story unfolded, but it slowly brings the focus of overcoming tragedy by reminding us that there are even bigger tragedies out there, and living right is the best revenge. The script is a little clunky at times, but its heart is in the right place.

I give it 2.75 stars, or a grade of B-.

I really liked it, despite its occasional bible waving preachiness.

My wife and daughter saw this, they both loved it. My wife cried through most of it.

Saw this with my two girls last night, and four of their friends (all aged 12-14).  We all thought it was wonderful...
