The movie is bound to be a big box office hit when it releases on June 8, but one week earlier (May 29), surfin' fans can get their hands on the video game. Surf's Up is the latest CG-animated film and, like most other movies in that same vein, it should be loaded with plenty of comedy and light-hearted action. It's got a unique premise, too; how often do we see movies about surfing? Heck, when's the last time you saw a surfing game? There were a few back at the start of the last generation (Transworld Surf, for example), but none have been all that great. Perhaps all they needed was a bit of cutesy flash and panache!
