Audience Reviews for Local Boys

Not bad little film with decent performances, too many pointless side stories detracts from the overall effectiveness of the main narrative.

Super Reviewer

If you're into the hardcore surf flicks, you might be happier sticking to the McGillivray-Freeman classics, but if you appreciate some nice surfing scenes as a backdrop to a story with a lot of heart and more than one "main character", do check this out. Probably the best movie I've seen Mark Harmon do. Jeremy Sumpter is particularly impressive as Skeet.
