Not as exciting as the first film, this one can't decide whether it's a tarvelogue, an adventure, or National Geographic documentary.

Had The Endless Summer II stuck to its subject, it would be a pleasant diversion. But it is weighed down with frivolous travel vignettes that are as dull as they are cute and contrived.

One of those rare bits of movie marginalia that are entirely without merit and, still, a pleasure to sit through.

Although the movie runs 95 minutes, it contains nothing much in the way of information about surfing.

Pretty hard to sit through, because Brown's incessant beach boy prattle is endlessly irritating.

[A] beautifully shot and exhilarating film that gets short shrift on this barebones DVD presentation...

It doesn't quite have the simple charm of the original, but it's still a very entertaining documentary with some great photography and amusing narration. Good editing.
