Surf Movie Review : Point Break 1991 7 out of 10

From Keanu Reeves terrible acting.....To Patrick Swayze and his  Mullet......To Keanu Reeves terrible acting again......To Gary Busey just being crazy........This FBI agent goes under cover as a surfer to catch bank robbers flick is epic in its cheesy greatness......Like Showgirls it shines for all the wrong reasons.....and just plain rocks in its absurdity....... Vaya con Dios......Oh did I mention Keanu's Terrible acting........He doesn't even run convincingly.  It is all about their quest for the perfect wave and to fund that quest they of course decide to dress up in President masks and rob banks... why not?   But not if Keanu can stop them.  It is funny because Patrick Swayze is trying to put his all into this movie--while Keanu still thinks he is in Bill and Ted's  Excellent Adventure.....I guess this might be one of the only movies he was ever perfectly cast for....and his acting is still terrible.   But despite all that the movie is still really fun...A great POV foot chase through houses and backyards..If you accept it for what it is---which is cheese you may enjoy it

Examples of the stellar dialogue:
 ‎"You gonna jump or jerk off?" --in the sky diving scene

Ben Harp: Do you think that taxpayers would like it Utah, if they knew that they were paying a federal agent to surf and pick up girls?
Johnny Utah: "Babes. "
Ben Harp: "I beg your pardon? "
Johnny Utah: "The correct term is Babes, sir"
