Soul Surfer has some terrible dialogue and sketchy acting (esp from Carrie Underwood). But it's gorgeously shot, with amazing surfing scenes and Hawaii landscape.
Oh, and ASR spends about 80% of the film in tiny bikinis.
Also, Helen Hunt in a bikini top and tiny shorts? I didn't know that was something I wanted to see, but it didn't hurt my feelings.
It's a sweet, inspirational story. I should have watched it sooner, but I figured I would hate it.
