"Surf II" is a 1983 American comedy film directed by Randall M. Badat and starring Eddie Deezen, Linda Kerridge, and Terry Kiser. The movie tells the story of a group of surf enthusiasts who are addicted to a new soda that has been infused with a toxic waste product. These surfers become increasingly deranged, and their behavior spirals out of control. It is up to a group of teenagers to put an end to the madness.

The movie is set in the fictional coastal town of Costa Plente, which is dominated by the local surf culture. Men and women alike sported brightly colored wetsuits and hairstyles that reflected the surfer lifestyle. The surfers in this movie are obsessed with a soda called "Buzz Cola," which they drink constantly. They even have a ritual involving pouring the soda over their heads before they hit the waves. Despite the soda's noxious fumes and weird flavor, the surfers seem to be unable to resist it.

The plot of "Surf II" revolves around the machinations of an evil businessman named Menlo Schwartzer (played by Kiser), who is secretly adding a toxic waste byproduct to the Buzz Cola. His goal is to create an army of deranged, zombie-like surfers who will do his bidding. Schwartzer is assisted by a beautiful accomplice named Menlo's Mom (played by Kerridge) and a dim-witted but loyal assistant named Chuck (played by Deezen).

The main character in the story is a young surfer named Menahune (played by Eric Stoltz), who is not addicted to Buzz Cola like the other surfers. Menahune is appalled by the behavior of his fellow surfers, who become increasingly aggressive and dangerous as they drink more of the soda. Along with a group of other teenagers, Menahune hatches a plan to steal the formula for Buzz Cola and put an end to the madness.

"Surf II" is a sharply satirical movie that skewers the surf culture of the 1980s. The movie is filled with over-the-top characters who embody the most ridiculous aspects of the surfer lifestyle. The surfing scenes are also wonderfully absurd, with the characters riding on top of each other's shoulders or using garbage can lids as makeshift surfboards.

The movie also features some fantastic performances from the lead actors. Deezen, Kiser, and Kerridge are all hilarious in their respective roles. Deezen, in particular, steals the show as the bumbling Chuck, who is constantly getting into ridiculous situations. Stoltz, who was only in his early 20s at the time, also does a fantastic job as the film's heroic protagonist.

The special effects in "Surf II" are fairly low budget, but they add to the movie's charm. In particular, the zombie-like surfers are a sight to behold, with their wild eyes and hyper-aggressive behavior. The movie also features some great music, with a soundtrack that includes a mix of surf rock and new wave hits from the era.

Overall, "Surf II" is a highly entertaining cult classic that is sure to delight fans of offbeat comedy. The movie is a perfect snapshot of the early 1980s, capturing the spirit and energy of that era's youth culture. It's a movie that doesn't take itself too seriously, and that's part of what makes it so much fun to watch. If you're looking for a quirky, irreverent movie with plenty of laughs, "Surf II" is definitely worth checking out.

Surf II is a 1984 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4.
