Movie Info

THE BEACH BUM follows the hilarious misadventures of Moondog (Matthew McConaughey), a rebellious rogue who always lives life by his own rules. Co-starring Snoop Dog, Zac Efron, and Isla Fisher, THE BEACH BUM is a refreshingly original and subversive new comedy from director Harmony Korine (Kids, Spring Breakers).

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5)

In The Beach Bum, the writer-director turns his observational eye and provocateur verve to a Miami community of misfits, who chase bliss in sex, drugs and misadventures.

The Beach Bum works by never losing its tonal statement that all that really matters is what matters to you ... man.

Like Moondog, Korine finds a vulgar poetry in his own self-indulgence.

I, admittedly, had a hard time getting on its woozy wavelength. But The Beach Bum is a work of undeniable commitment and craft...

Such hedonism isn't irredeemable in and of itself, and yet, one wishes Korine were interested in more than just testing boundaries.

The Beach Bum is a skillfully crafted and often hilariously entertaining, but like an evening with Moondog, it might leave you with a hangover.
