They're three friends with one passion: fulfilling their dream of living the ultimate adventure amid the island paradise of Hawaii's fabled North Shore! Hailed as an exhilarating "fun ride" by People Magazine, Blue Crush is an adrenaline-powered story of heartfelt friendship and nonstop action that The Washington Post raves is "a big, sexy, sun-splashed thrill."

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: The surfing sequences are exhilarating, but the plot is pretty forgettable and trite.

In all, American girls could do worse than have Blue Crush as their own summer action movie.

The movie isn't nearly dumb enough to be much beach fun.

The body-doubling and face-pasting are unfortunately blatant.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Blue Crush is a 2002 movie about a young woman in Hawaii determined to be a champion surfer. The lead character, Anne Marie, shows determination and perseverance to overcome the naysayers who don't think she can compete in what has historically been a male-dominated sport. She is also trying to raise her tween little sister, who is now frequently getting into trouble, going to parties, drinking alcohol, and smoking marijuana. Main characters have sex. Some gross-out scenes occur: While working as a maid in a hotel, one of the lead characters steps on a used condom that gets stuck to her shoe. Vomit and excrement are shown in a trashed hotel room. There's some profanity: "s--t," "a--hole," "pissed," "bitch," "hell," "nut hugger," and "p--n." There's also some violence and peril: The memory of Anne Marie wiping out and injuring her head by smashing into a coral reef is shown several times throughout the movie.
