I'd never heard of Jay Moriarity until a visit to the dentist when the conversation over my head was Chasing Mavericks. It caught my attention and I had to see it. Frosty (Gerry Butler) takes Jay (Jonny Weston) on to teach him to surf the big wave but really takes him into his heart as a son. Jay's father is absent and Jay is left to pick up the pieces by keeping his mom and home on track while going to school and keeping himself on track. It's a movie about learning about yourself, dealing with your issues and gaining inner strength to go through life. Jay is exposed to the darker side of teenage years with his friend Blond obviously dealing/using but Jay steps back from it and tries to help Blond better himself. There were times I was crying because of the emotion Gerry and Jonny bring out in their roles. A role like Frosty's needs a special person; one that has lost someone in life; to bring out the powerful emotions that come out in Gerry's depiction of Frosty and his understanding of Jay's situation. It's not just acting, it comes from inside and I think it is the real Gerry, not just an actor. Leven Rambin plays Kim (Jay's girlfriend) and Abigail Spencer plays Brenda (Frosty's wife) and the whole story comes alive. There is sadness with Brenda's death and Frosty trying to deal with going forward and doing a wretched job of it. Jay's shake up makes Frosty see that teamwork matters and there are others there to help when you need a shoulder to lean on. It's a sad ending to Jay's life but he lived his life to the fullest in the short time he lived and had a positive impact on everyone he met. The surfing, scenery and whole atmosphere of the film are amazing. The entire cast of the film did a fantastic job even though it took so long and the extras were piece de resistance - love them!

I gave this movie five stars for the following reasons: most of the storyline keeps to the true story of the lives of Jay Moriarity and Frosty Hesson; the acting is very good; the photography is spectacular; the message of Jay's life comes through powerfully with the truth wonderfully presented that one person's caring influence can change another person's life for good. Jay is the son of a father who abandoned him and his mother. His mother struggles through depression and poverty, taking Jay with her on the emotional rollercoaster. But Jay has a dream. A keen surfer named Frosty agrees to train Jay to surf the gigantic waves called mavericks off the California coast. In the special features, where the real people in the story are interviewed, the message of Jay's life is made clear: anyone can overcome his or her past with persevering in pursuing a dream. I highly recommend this movie.

Mavericks are rogue waves that exceed the height and intensity of most others. Frosty played by Gerard Butler has been chasing them for years and they become the obsession of high school student, Ray Moriarity. At first, I thought this to be have an entirely predictable plot with a young man finding his mentor, at first rejecting by his mentor and then, through a series of trials, being accepted and even exceeding all expectations of the mentor. Sure, it was that but so much more. This is a story about not only chasing mavericks but chasing your limits. Putting yourself on the line and finding out what you can really do. It's a terrific story both uplifting and tragic, a boy finding the father he never had, the man finding a son and the development of a bond that only can be realized when boundaries are tested. Plus, the surfing scenes are amazing. Well worth your two hours.

I did not go see this is the theater thanks to bad critical reviews. Well, paid movie critics, you got this one completely wrong. I felt the entire movie hit just the right tone in every single scene. Gerard Butler is terrific as the surf mentor to Jonny Weston playing famed surfer Jay Moriarity. The actual surf scenes throughout are amazing and shot so well. Kudos for also getting the soundtrack spot-on with a nice mix of the skater/surfer hardcore (Butthole Surfers, Sponge) to the mellower stuff (Mazzy Star) of the late '80s.

The extras are also worth watching with a look at the life of Jay Moriarity (Wiki him, if you want to learn more) as well as interviews with the actual surfers involved in the filming.

From start to finish, this captures life in a typical California beach community and the whole surfer ethos.

I love watching movies based on true stories, and this one didn't disappoint.
It was inspiring watching a man learn how to become a better man, through his actions pertaining to a neighborhood boy. This boy, who is fatherless, becomes Gerards' prodigy. He teaches him more than just surfing, he really becomes a surrogate father of sorts.
The movie definitely has what I call, "The Disney Effect". Things are slightly predictable and everyone gets what they want in the end, with a happy one at that, of course.
Not a movie I would watch with little ones, but tweens and teens will enjoy it surely.
