    Surfer, Dude
    Hands on a Hard Body director S.R. Bindler directs this wave-twisting tale of a soul-searching surfer (Matthew McConaughey) in the midst of an existential crisis. Steve Addington (McConaughey) is an herb-toking long-boarder with a keen sense of balance and a mellow outlook on life. Upon returning to his hometown of Malibu to spend the summer with old friends, Steve begins to sense that the good vibes he remembers as a boy have been hopelessly corrupted by the powers that be. When the earthen surfer is faced with the prospect of expanding into virtual-reality video games and reality television or risk being rendered irrelevant, he opts to keep riding the majestic Southern California waves rather than participate in this new digital reality. Fate seems to intercede, however, when the ocean simply ceases to produce any suitable waves. His finances dried up, his sponsored expense accounts suddenly canceled, and his friends flocking off to bluer pastures, the surfer without a wave suddenly realizes that he has but two choices in life: he can either sit tight and try to keep his sanity until the waves come rolling in again, or finally give in to the Man and his intoxicating world of artificial amusements. Perhaps with a little wisdom from his trusted manager (Woody Harrelson), his aging mentor (Scott Glenn), his guardian angel (Willie Nelson), and his newfound muse (Alexie Gilmore), Addington can somehow manage to maintain his mellow just long enough to put it all into perspective and get back to the basics. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Surf Bro!!


      In this film you get taken into a world that is rarely ever exposed on film and thats the world of true soul surfing.Here you have Steve Addington and he loves surfing and that will always be his love, and when he shows up back home his whole world begins to collapse when there is not a single wave to ride and you feel his pain of not being able to do what he loves the most.It also shows how the world today is too caught up in busting out and updating all kinds of technology when in reality "Love & Waves, Thats What We Need In These Dark Days"- Steve Addington is all we need.

      Sweet ride of a movie, bro!


      Light and fun movie. I think this is a documentary on Matt. Have seen him in the Bu many times and he is just like Addington, albeit not as dumb. The movie captures the true essence of the scene, man. Scott Glenn is classic. Love it, gonna get it on BluRay!! Yeahhhhh! "All we need is love and waves...."

      I loved the movie and the Actors make it rich, someone has tapped into the way an Old Head thinks or tried to think ...LOL. I love it because it reminds me and My Bud's growing up and creating our own language and lifestyle.
