Mavericks is the story of Jay Moriarty, a legendary surfer who died before his time.
The Mavericks is a break, which is apparently a bunch of waves, in Northern California which are notoriously hard to ride. Jay Moriarty will likely succeed at riding them. I am quite brilliant.
I know I said he died before his time, but that was in a free-diving accident. I wish this was more like Soul Surfer, but instead of uplifting, it would just be a stupid idiot getting eaten by a shark for PLAYING IN THEIR YARD. It’s like Sandlot. You don’t go in the yard of the big dog. That goes double for shark yards.
Mavericks is directed by Curtis Hanson, who directed films such as 8 Mile and In Her Shoes. The film is set to star Gerard Butler as the mentor of Moriarty, who has not yet been cast. Sean Penn is also rumored to have a role, but it may have been the role that Butler just signed for. So… yeah.
Who’s It For?
Sharks. It’ll probably be PG-13, so underage sharks will be allowed in.
Movie Release Date

What’s Good About It?
I like Gerard Butler, even if he did make a romantic comedy with Katherine Heigl, so it has that going for it at least.
What’s Bad About It?
I don’t much like surfing. I’m not rad.
Our Clever Prediction
I doubt the film will do well.
