Blue CrushDirector: John Stockwell
Move over, Gidget -- a new breed of female surfers with style, guts and attitude hit the screen in this feature, which combines romance with a sports drama. Anne Marie (Kate Bosworth) is a young woman living in Hawaii who has been surfing since she was a little girl, and over the past year has been training for the prestigious Pipe Masters surfing competition. But Anne Marie is still dealing with emotional baggage that's holding her back -- her mother abandoned her years ago, leaving her to raise her younger sister Penny (Mika Boorem) while having to guide herself through adolescence, and Anne Marie nearly drowned while trying to surf the famous Maui Pipeline three years ago, and has yet to shake the anxieties of this traumatic event. Anne Marie and Penny share a house with Anne Marie's friends Lena (Sanoe Lake) and Eden (Michelle Rodriguez), both fellow surf enthusiasts, and the three friends work as maids at a hotel, a job which offers them flexible hours for riding the waves. When a pro football team checks into the hotel, Anne Marie meets Matt (Matthew Davis), a promising quarterback who has his eye on her. Anne Marie is just as attracted to Matt as he is to her, but will Anne Marie have to choose between the man of her dreams and the recognition as a surfer she's worked for years to receive? Kate Bosworth, Michelle Rodriguez, and Sanoe Lake did all their own surfing in Blue Crush; Bosworth and Rodriguez went into training to learn the sport before shooting began, while Lake, a native Hawaiian, was already a confirmed surf enthusiast.
Looking at the posters for Blue Crush, which show Bosworth, Rodriguez and Lake posing with bikinis and surfboards, I expected another mindless surfing movie. Blue Crush is anything but. Roger Ebert

this is one of my favorite movies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This DVD is great if you have a quality home theatre system. Way above average in the mix of sound effects and video. Hard to find a movie that has a little zing in it for camera effects and sound effects.
it was a great movie. its about time the have a movie that shows the true power of a women. it would have been better if george clooney was out there in a bathing suit though.
This movie was so good! It immediately made me just want to jump into the ocean and surf!
blue crush was good usually i get up and do something else but i didn't do anything on this movie. i just sat their and watched all of it.
I first saw blue crush at the cinema a few months back and loved it, now ive got it on dvd and I'm lovin' it even more! It has a well balanced mix of action, comedy and romance and an all round great storyline, keeps you interested and makes u wanna surf!
Blue crush was not bad at all even though it was a chick flick i foulnd that it had a mix of comedy and romance and action in it I am looking for it in stores right now to buy on dvd.
awesome movie. this looks like a sufer chick movie but its wonderfully written and is anything but a dumb teen movie.
The movie was great! It starts out slow, but after 2 min. it becomes great! It is funny and had an amazing love story to it.
I can not think of any other movie like this. I liked the fact it was based on a female because most things in life are based on men. If I could be freinds with a girl like Ann-Marie then I'd be lucky.
