Very cool surf film, hot action, adorable leading lady
3 May 2004 | by MajorFilmsSee all my reviews

Surf-ripping action on 60-foot waves are more than enough to make this film worth recommending. But OFF THE LIP is much more than its amazing surfing sequences. Leading lady Marguerite Moreau is infectiously charming, and her sassy attitude is pure fun. As a cub reporter sent to Hawaii in search of a legendary and reclusive surfer, Moreau encounters every obstacle imaginable, from drug runners to romance to the financial demise of her new employer. The plot never drags and always keeps you guessing, which makes this film truly enjoyable to jaded viewers such as myself, or to general audiences. The film's "R" rating (due to drug use, language and sexual content) may seem like a marketing obstacle if the audience were the same as "Blue Crush." But OFF THE LIP skews to both an older crowd, as well as to true surf-fans, and to both of these markets, language, drug use and sexual content are likely to be selling points! I'd say the film is probably PG-13 by contemporary TV Broadcast standards. Don't be shy to let the kids see this one... check it out!
