Surf's Up
This animated mockumentary takes a look behind the scenes at a pro surfing competition. Our hero is a penguin who travels from the Antarctic to a tropical clime to take part in a famous competition. As a coming-of-age tale, he is given special training by a laid-back mentor, while also working on attracting the attention of the cute female lifesaver.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThere's nothing childish about Surf's Up. Brannon and Buck, both of whom cut their teeth in Disney's animation studios, have constructed this movie in such a way that it offers something of value to viewers of all ages. If you have to see one penguin movie, this is it.
