Surf's UpDirector: Ash Brannon, Chris Buck
A surfing penguin currently riding the wave of success enters his first professional competition in this computer-animated family-oriented comedy from directors Chris Buck and Ash Brannon. Cody Maverick (Shia LaBeouf) may be a relative amateur when it comes to hanging ten, but he's sure he has what it takes to surf his way to superstardom. With a little help from his cantankerous King Penguin mentor, ex-surfing legend Big Z (Jeff Bridges), and a little encouragement from star Pen Gu Island lifeguard Lani (Zooey Deschanel), there may be hope for this tuxedo-clad wave twister after all. James Woods, Jane Krakowski, Michael McKean, Jon Heder, Mario Cantone, and Brian Benben all lend their voices to this inspirational tale that proves anything is possible when you put your heart and mind to it.

This movie was awesome for all ages. Very funny, good story.
This movie was awsome. It is a very funny family movie that is gonna make u watch it over and over again. I loved it when the camra-man kept re-playing Cody's wipe-out which he literally asked for him to re-play. LOL!!!!!!!!!
I liked the part from the review that said this movie was about achieving something when you believe and put your heart in it because in the lives that we lead this is very true. The lesson was a lot cooler with a strutting rooster and hard assed penguins. Recommended for kids
I watch this movie several times a month. When I am working, I have it on and just laugh like crazy listening and watching it. The story and characters, you can apply them to your own family (not line by line). This is just great clean funny movie.
I watched this movie with my wife yesterday for about the 8th time. When it was over I couldn't help but study the cover art and realized that, while the artwork itself is good, the picture does nothing to recommend itself. It looks cheasy and cliche. Well, it is definately not a cliche as it is the only animated movie filmed in the style of a documentary. This is just a flat-out fun movie to be enjoyed over and over. It is easily one of my all time favorites. And the animated water is simply dazzling! I still can't believe how real it looks, and it makes me want to go to the beach every time. Lots of potty humor, but it's actually funny (unlike in some other cartoons), and used somewhat realistically as this is a "documentary." If you like surfing, or animated movies, or you're in the search of an original movie that hasn't been done over and over, then I highly recommend this movie.
Cody Maverick in the boneyards.I love Surf's Up.I can not believe that Cody survived the boneyards.People died in the boneyards.
