    Nice Reveiw From Miami Herald for Soul Surfer

    Mostly Positive 3 star review from the Miami Herald- some Carrie mention

    'Soul Surfer' - Movies Wires - MiamiHerald.com


    Sure, peppered as it is with hokey lines ("Let's let the surfing do the talking!"), the dialogue isn't terribly compelling, and Underwood's presence may seem merely a device to pile on the Christian message. But the real Bethany, the closing credits show us, is religious and had a close relationship with her youth minister. She even traveled with a group to Thailand in the wake of the tsunami to help with relief efforts. The film's portrait of a loving, quietly devout family will doubtless put off more cynical viewers, but even they would be hard-pressed to disdain such a recovery - and such a life.
