Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story is hilarious. From Zep’s attempt to make a raft from marijuana bales, to Zep telling Del that being a parasite is a valid lifestyle, to seeing that Lolo has faint disks like suckers on her forearms and Del musing that he’d never noticed that about her before, there’s one hysterical, understated laugh line after another.

And, of course, in the end, the good guys surf to victory.

Con: It’s a weird mix of SF and fantasy, and it’s very, very silly.
