In honor of summer, Hump Day is now Summer Movie Day. And what better way to start than with a beach movie? There are all kinds of beach movies, but when I think of surfer movies, my mind instantly goes to Point Break. This film (now *gasp* 19 years old) features Patrick Swayze in one of my favorite roles and Keanu Reeves in a part that fits him like a glove.
Contrary to the set up, setting, and characters, though, this movie has a surprising bit of depth to it. Quite a bit of heart. And staying power. I enjoy watching it just as much today as I did back in 1991.
