Lovely - no it isn't going to challenge you, but i would urge you to watch it of you are in love with cornwall, bored on a wet Sunday, or your day's surfing has been called off due to lack of waves.

Delayed Coming of Age .

A bit of nostalgia for me for some happy times, and for others probably well worth watching if you don't take it too seriously, more an "aaaah" and a giggle than a "wow" though.

Yawn .

But I really enjoyed it, rate it "7" of "10".

None of the scenes feel longer than about two minutes, so it's hard to follow any plot lines.

when I wasn't confused by the vague and random plot turns, I was bored.

The first half is particularly bad, as it has some of the most dull, pointless dialogue I've come across in a while, and zero comma zero plot to speak of.

Sean Pertwee has a few comical moments, but mostly his acting was mundane.

His girlfriend played by Catherine Zeta-Jones is poorly written and uninteresting.

Although this film ends with every main character having gone through some dramatic moral change, it is a very enjoyable film about friends and lifestyle.

The first half of "Blue Juice" is particularly slow-moving and often baffling.

This is a good coming of age (30) movie.

As a curiosity, 'Blue Juice' is an excellent chance to see Zeta-Jones playing a young woman and in some scenes she's even furious, which is quite exciting.

If you thought surfing was exciting, think again.

The comedy, though, IS very predictable and tired.

The film stumbles badly between exaggerated comedy and realistic drama, with neither being really engaging.

I saw this dull waste of time on HBO's Comedy Channel, so I quite innocently and obviously assumed that this was a comedy.

The beginning is slow and spends too much time on long shots of only slightly interesting landscapes.

The passion these guys have for surfing and their immaturity is funny and entertaining.
