    not...exactly....

    I bought surfer dude on blu ray for $5 used, it's a decent flick, esp for those not privy to real surfing. It's got Willie AND Woody...C'mon.

    THE BEACH BUM is a refreshingly original and subversive new comedy


    vs

    Steve Addington (Matthew McConaughey) is a professional surfer and beach bum who lives to ride the waves. Content simply to live in the moment, he has a dilemma when his finances dry up and businessman Eddie Zarno (Jeffrey Nordling) offers to hire him for a virtual reality game. Since there are suddenly no good waves in the ocean, Addington must reconsider Zarno's offer and ponder his place in the world. Struggling with the choice, Addington seeks advice from his friends.

    Okay, I concede (a wee bit).
    I saw the trailer today before a screening of Gaspar Noe's latest, Climax.
    I laughed my ass off for the 3-minutes.
    I am intrigued.

    I went the other night. I drank four beers at the house. Went and got hibachi with my buddy. More beer and now sake. Went to a bar near the movie. 6 or so more beers. Uber to the theater. Grab a IPA and head to my seat.

    About 20 min in I realize my phone is gone. Fuck...

    My buddys phone is at 5%... We risk being stranded if we stay...

    We decide to leave. I also don't remember much of the movie. Lots of pot.

    Hope this helped.

    Find your phone ?
    You should write a screenplay based on going to a movie and losing a phone and missing the movie

    THE BEACH BUM
    2.5 / 5
    Filmed in a loose, yet heightened cinema verite style (or a faux Dogma 95 style, if you prefer), this film reminds me of a less slick version of Surfer Dude. In both films Matthew McConaughey portrays a once famous, now aimless beach bred individual (here he’s a once revered poet) and spends the bulk of the film getting stoned and participating in wayward hijinks. While the thin story line centers around Moondog (McConaughey’s character) becoming something of a responsible adult (the story is really like a tweaker’s version of Brewster’s Millions) it’s loose and rambling style can be distracting. Much of the film feels as if director Harmony Korine gave the cast a rudimentary outline, told them to get wasted, and just wing it. While it can be endearing at times, mostly due to McConaughey’s sheer charisma and dynamic acting, the borderline linear directing style can be off-putting and tiresome. Additionally, the inclusion of obvious non-actors, while giving the film a slight sense of “authenticity” also felt manipulative and, well, fake; it was like the director and professional actors were pandering to the locals by including them in the film, but also making fun of them in an underhanded way. Yet despite it’s faux documentary vibe, the film is still a slick, somewhat Hollywood-styled endeavor.
    While McConaughey completely dominates the screen Isla Fisher goes for broke and almost rivals him. However, the surprise turn comes in the form of former Disney heartthrob Zac Efron, whose self-destructive Born Again Christian character Flicker lends some hell raising hilarity to the proceedings. And Martin Lawrence ain’t too shabby either. The only weak link amongst the thespians is Snoop Dogg. Dude may be a stellar rapper, but when placed next to McConaughey and the rest of the cast it becomes apparent that he’s not a very good actor.
    In retrospect, methinks the The Beach Bum might be enhanced if one were to view it in a haze of some kind, taking after the characters in the film, no less.

    In God's Hands looks to be the complete antithesis of both Surfer Dude and The Beach Bum...
