Movie Info

Eric Christian Olsen and Jeremy Sumpter star as brothers Randy and Skeet Dobson in this coming-of-age surfer movie from director Ron Moler. With their widowed mother working to provide for the family, Randy is left to look after 12-year-old Skeet. Despite the fact that a kid brother is a bit of a style-cramper, Randy lets Skeet tag along with him to the beach where he and his friends surf the summer days away. But trouble begins to brew when a pretty girl named Samantha (Shelby Fenner) chooses Randy over the leader of a rough-and-tumble surfer gang. Meanwhile, all is not well at home either when Skeet befriends Jim Wesley (Mark Harmon), a legendary surfer who begins a romantic relationship with the boys' mother, Jessica (Stacy Edwards), much to Randy's chagrin.

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.

Good surf movie. An old school surfer comes back into town and teaches a family how to love... and stuff...

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.
