ITEM#: 2503045BIG WEDNESDAY follows the lives of Matt (Jan-Michael Vincent), Jack (William Katt), and Leroy (Gary Busey), three young Californians who live to surf. Together, the boys ride the waves, throw beach parties, and, of course, get into scrapes. However, as the years go by, the trio must contend with the escalating war in Vietnam and embark on the painful road to maturity. Although director and screenwriter John Milius usually dwells in a macho world of action, his meditation on the waning of youthful dreams, partially based on his own childhood, is surprisingly heartfelt. While the film depicts the close friendship shared by Matt, Jack, and Leroy, it also does justice to their favorite pastime with stunningly photographed surfing sequences. Widely considered to be one of the best surfer movies of all time, BIG WEDNESDAY pinpoints a specific era with pitch-perfect skill and nostalgia.

This is a must have movie for all Surfers old school and new. If you have participated in this sport the even older somewhat flawed productions are required for a full historical library. Also this is a bit of a cult flick due to the Vincent and Bussey as leads. For those who have Run The Pipe, Shred the Bu, dropped in at K38 and more you know; for others just enjoy a bit of history. Thanks Overstock for updating hard to find classics. RVDRead More
