[Highly rated reviewer]The star of the movie-within-a-movie is Cody Maverick, a pint-sized penguin with a king-sized dream of becoming an international surfing champion. To that end, he leaves his home in Antarctica and ventures to Hawaii to take part in the Big Z Memorial Surf-off, a competition held in honor of the surfing legend who was washed away by a giant wave during a previous contest, never to be heard from again.
This flick was filmed in a similar fashion to Incredibles (camera diary scene type thing) and also has some 'old sepia' footage thrown in as well.
It was an OK film but didn't really shine. It moved pretty slowly and the kids kept asking when the film would finish fairly near the end, I think they'd had enough. It was nicely animated and pretty and all the usual, but the plot wasn't all that great. Don't get me wrong, it is worth seeing but don't expect too much. The main underlying message is 'Winning isn't everything', and it's just as well as this isn't likely to win anything.

It had its moments...By Slurs from Scotland , 28 Sep 2009...but there are better animated films out there. Better, as in more depth, better plot, more interesting characters and problems. Still it wasn't an unpleasant way to spend an hour or so.
