3.0 out of 5 stars Coming of age surfer film showcases California vibe June 20 2012
By Jim Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
By Jim Clark, publisher, Lee County Courier, Tupelo, MS

Beautiful Wave is primarily a chick flick, filled with a little action, some heartache, secrets, plenty of drama and beautiful scenery.
Nicole (Aimee Teegarden of Friday Night Lights) reluctantly spends a summer with her grandmother (Patricia Richardson of Home Improvement).
Nicole's father died when she was a young girl by drowning. Since that time she's had a fear of water, even though she is a great swimmer, and spends most of her time wrapped in a book.
She slowly begins to warm to her free spirited grandmother, whose own husband never came back from Vietnam.
On beknown to the two women, the grandfather Jimmy (Lance Henriksen of Pumpkinhead) is alive living far down in Mexico where he and a comrade save sea turtles from pouchers.
The grandmother gives an old 1962 surf van to Nicole, that belonged to the grandfather she never knew. Armed with that, a map that shows surfing locations including one called Beautiful Wave, loads up with three friends and begins an adventure.
The crew includes Kayla (Alicia Ziegler) the surf shop manager, who helps the grandmother, Jeff (Ben Milliken) who has a thing for Nicole and Danny (David Thomas Jenkins), Jeff's best friend and the bad boy of the bunch.
Most guys will find Beautiful Wave boring. Most girls will find it charming. I liked it primarily because of the vintage van, cool scenery and a great soundtrack filled with wispy seldom-heard beach music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, tender indie movie about surfing and self-discovery May 18 2012
By egk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"Beautiful wave" is a charming indie film. Gorgeous scenery. Awesome journey in a vintage turquoise van. Great soundtrack. Tender storyline about a girl's facing up to her fears, finding herself, and reconnecting with her family.

If you're expecting an action-packed, slick Hollywood surf film, then you might not get into it. But if you're in the mood for a sweet meander, with heart and a deep sense of place, then I think you'll fall in love with it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Nov. 13 2013

Wonderful movie! It's true that Vietnam War changed young men and women after they came home forever haunted and never same again even to this day. Beautiful Wave is wonderful movie with great surf songs from '60's & '70's
3.0 out of 5 stars Good beach movie with and interesting story Sept. 30 2013

Its the kind of movie that once you start it you have to finish it to see what happens. The story follows the lives of two related parties. The granddaughter and the grandfather. It is hard to take your attention off the movie until you find out how and if their two stories will connect at the end. The ocean scenes are just beautiful though, the waves look like so much fun!
2.0 out of 5 stars Surf Movie? Not Exactly... Aug. 2 2013
By Tsuyoshi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In "Beautiful Wave" Aimee Teegarden is a 17-year-old New York girl Nicole, who has to spend the summer in Santa Cruz where her estranged grandmother Sue (Patricia Richardson) lives. Sue gives Nicole an old surf van that Sue's boyfriend (and Nicole's grandfather) Jimmy owned. With three newly acquainted friends Jeff (Ben Milliken), Kayla (Alicia Ziegler) and Danny (David Thomas Jenkins), Nicole hits the road looking for the places on the map that she found in the van.

Helen Slater plays Nicole's mother Jane. Prolific veteran Lance Henriksen appears as "Baja Man," a surfer and environmentalist protecting sea turtle eggs from poachers.

"Beautiful Wave" is part surf movie, part road movie (covering from California to Mexico), part coming-of-age film where the heroine finds herself, and even attempts to be a romance, but fails to truly be any of them. The problem is simple: the script. The story is contrived and implausible. Paper-thin characters make unnatural decisions just to keep the plot going. Heavy-handed direction from David Mueller doesn't help.

The photography is beautiful and the surf scenes are decent if not outstanding, but to make a more emotionally involving drama we need something more than that.
