I re-watched it the other week while suffering from horrendous flu. I tell you, as a grown-ass man, I fucking cried.

That's funny, I watched it last night...
I love the eulogy they give for Waxer- I want someone at my funeral to say, "he had a nice cut back, and he rode the nose real well." Just not anytime soon.

hokey? One of the Best fuckin films of all time. We are talking Milius here, have a little respect! And yes, I get choked up every time too.

"I swear I never, and I don't who would've if it wasn't me, but I never, ever, pissed in your steam iron"

Maybe hokey wasn't the right term...
Dated?
I don't know...
I'm a big Milius fan...
He wrote Apocalypse Now...
The best surf film ever...
Not hokey or dated.
