Surf's Up 2: WaveMania is a 2017 animated direct-to-DVD film produced by Sony Pictures Animation and WWE Films.


The adventurous Cody convinces The Hang 5, a famous big wave-riding crew, to accompany him to a surfing location known as "The Trenches", where the biggest waves in the world can be found.

Why it Sucks

  1. Mediocre animation that's not a patch on the original's stunning animation.
  2. Completely disrespects the original source material. In the first Surf's Up movie, Cody's idol is Big Z, however in this movie, it's the Hang 5.
  3. The designs of the Hang 5 look very unappealing.
  4. This movie has flat characterization since Cody acts like he wants to take down Tank rather than go surfing with the Hang 5.
  5. Combining surfing penguins with WWE wrestlers is completely stupid, as WWE has nothing to do with surfing.
  6. Many of the characters, especially Cody, are inferior from the first film.
  7. The infamous scene where Mr. McMahon 'milks' a fish.
  8. We barely see any characters that are not main characters in the film, it's like nearly all of the locals just vanished.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The Hang 5 characters stay true to their original wrestler counterparts.
  2. The voice acting is okay, with Jon Heder and Diedrich Bader reprising their roles as Chicken Joe and Tank Evans, respectively.
