Sometimes the best stories are the rags to riches, over coming all the odds, to win something or become a better person. I can’t say whether it the was cast or the surfing storyline, but something about Blue Crush just didn’t click for me. The water shots are really spectacular, as the surfers ride inside the waves, yet the pity party thrown by the lead character didnt win me over or make me care whether or not she wins. This is one of the better surfing movies out there, but with a different cast they could have pulled something better.
