Misleading title and no nudity? Could this be good? Yes, it can!
The title is very misleading and I do not see why they put National Lampoon in front of this movie and why did they call it surf party? When I started to watch this movie I did not have very high expectations about the content and thought this would be like another hyperactive T&A movie with a surf theme.
To my surprise, I found out this was not true. Instead this is a coming of age movie that tells a story about some friends on a journey to find a stolen surf board and why the surf board got stolen. Main characters are likable and the acting feels normal. The movie flows along in a nice pace and I never got bored or looked at the clock while watching this movie.
This movie reminds me of teen movies from the late 70's like The Van (1977) and Malibu Beach (1978). The movie also has some quirky characters appearing like Joan Jett and Lee Ving. The only thing missing here is Steve Oliver as Dugan, getting into a fight and yelling, "Nobody calls Dugan a turd!"
As a surf comedy and a National Lampoon movie, there is no nudity, but the girls show some skin in bikini's. I think the movie tries to rely on storytelling and characters rather than showing T&A to keep viewers interested though the movie.
A modern surf comedy that feels like a late 70's surf comedy? A pleasant surprise.
