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.
A pure celebration of riding the waves.
A big, sexy, sun-splashed thrill ride.
Blue Crush has all the trappings of an energetic, extreme-sports adventure, but ends up more of a creaky "Pretty Woman" retread, with the emphasis on self-empowering schmaltz and big-wave surfing that gives pic its title an afterthought.
Stockwell never manages to connect the water footage to the story, to make the waves a character or a metaphor for what's happening on land - except in the sense that this film is never wetter than when it gets out of the ocean and back to the plot.
Affable yet forgettable...
Tough yet tender surfer heroine story.
Sporting a cast of up-and-coming actresses, John Stockwell's surfing flick offers up a slice of entertainment that acknowledges its roots and whose throw away pleasures arrive with no guilt.
When the movie attempts to tell a story on land, you might want to bring along a flashlight and a magazine.
Proves to indeed be the formulaic bore it appears to be, however nicely dressed up (or undressed, depending on one's perspective) it is.
The viewer stands to gain little from watching this film. Its boring, recycled plot can be found in many sports movies. Athlete is good at his/her sport, gets distracted by life, is encouraged to go back to the sport, is skeptical at first, but then decides that the sport truly is more important and succeeds in the end. That's all there is here. So there's nothing unique or exciting about the core of the film, but hey, at least Kate Bosworth and friends spend half the film in bikinis.
Kate Skarratt: And when I tell you to go, you gotta go. You gotta paddle your little heart out. You can't hesitate, you can't pull back, you can't hold back. No fear. Alright?
Blue Crush was a lot more entertaining than I thought it would be. The surf scenes are really well made and look great. I don't think Kate Bosworth is a great actress, but she's beautiful and isn't too bad in this one. The movie for me falls apart because it is over dramatic and most of the time pretty cliche. You can probably guess how the final scene will play out before the movie gets 15 minutes in. Another aspect I hated was the soundtrack. It was really annoying with horrible rap and pop songs and it kind of ruined the best parts of the movie for me. Every time there was a long surf scene they would play horrible music and totally demolish the scene. Not a horrible movie; just a predictable decent one.
A solid chick flick that delivers when it comes to the oceans and its small stories that flow with it's average dialogue. I can only mildly recommend this, but it is a good movie!
i quite liked this movie, its sweet enough not a movie i'd watch again though i dont think , although i liked the friendship and it is quite amusing in places and it certainly is sweet and ambscious movie it just doesnt appeal to me as such becuase its not got enough comedy to make it a comedy and its not inspiring enough to be a nice heart felt drama so im left in the middle, it is worth the watch but not a second watch!
