i like the story and all but the moe wasn't so hot, think they could of made a better film (and differend actors and actresses.
The good stuff
The movie's strongly positive message is that you can get over the worst of tragedies with perspective, self-determination, and the support of friends and family.
Bethany is a very positive role model, choosing to respond to enormous loss and tragedy with grace and kindness to both herself and others. Instead of dwelling on what she doesn't have, she focuses instead on what to give to others.
What to watch out for
A shark attacks a young surfer. It happens quickly but ferociously, with lots of blood and some gore.
Flirting, girls in bikinis.
"Jerk" and "oh my God."
Brand names and logos for surfing sponsors, including Rip Curl and Red Bull. Also Spam (the food, not the junk email).
