Bodhy and Jonny Utah are back! Easily the best surf movie, and extraextraextra easily one of the most exciting movies for teenage boys everywhere, ever, Point Break is set for a sequel. It's been 17 years since ultimate onscreen combo - Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze - have graced our lives, in a film about a band of rogue surfers who dress up like dead presidents to rob banks; and the FBI agent trying to catch them. Point Break is also one of the most quotable movies of all time, with gems such as...
"It's like every 50 years a wave comes along SO BIG, it's like God's trying to tell us how small we really are."
And my personal favourite:
"Look at it! It's a once in a lifetime opportunity man! Let me go out there and get one wave, just one wave before you take me in. I mean, come on man, where am I gonna go? Cliffs on both sides! I'm not gonna paddle out to New Zealand!"
The new film will take place in South East Asia 20 years after the disappearance of Swayze's character Bodhy. Both the original and sequel were written by W. Peter Iliff. Plot details and possible character reprises have not yet been disclosed, and there's no word yet if Keanu and Patrick will be involved, so we can only hope.
p.s. I forgot to say, Lori Petty who plays both the main characters' love interest, rocks the hottest high waisted super short faded out denim cutoffs in this movie. So hot in fact, she inspired me to cut off this old pair of calvins to upperupper thigh level. I'm off to the States tomorrow, so if you see a skinny white guy with lots of thigh and little short, that's totes me. PEOW!
