Lights! Camera! Hawaii!
Your votes have finally been tallied in our latest HAWAII Magazine Facebook Ohana Poll question!
Last month, we asked our HAWAII Magazine Facebook fans to sound off on the question: “What’s your favorite Hawaii-filmed movie?”
Apparently, our readers were seriously ready to give us their choices.
The list of flicks in our Facebook comment boxes began growing full tilt the moment we posted the poll question. By the time we shut down voting a couple of weeks later, the list of your favorite Hawaii-filmed movies encompassed just about every film genre out there—from comedies and dramas to action-adventures, animated features and even a Gidget flick.
The breadth of your selections reached deep into Hollywood’s film vaults—from 1953’s From Here To Eternity to recent favorites such as 2008’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall (both filmed on Oahu). In all, enough films to fill a Netflix movie queue that would keep us couching at home watching Hawaii-filmed flicks for, oh, a couple of months.
You’ll find the Top 5 countdown of our Facebook ohana’s favorite Hawaii-filmed movies here and on the pages ahead.
If you’d like to join and vote along with our growing Facebook fan page ohana, click here. You’ll get our “Hawaii favorite” poll questions as soon as we post them, and also get instant updates on your Facebook wall when we post all of our daily HawaiiMagazine.com stories and features.

But right now, let’s go to the movies … Hawaii style! HAWAII Magazine Facebook fans, here is your Top 5:
Kate Bosworth making it into the Pipeline Masters, one of the gnarliest winter big wave competitions on Oahu’s North Shore? Only in this 2002 surf drama about a trio of friends who deem their lives incomplete until they compete on Hawaii’s most famous waves. Locations for Blue Crush filming included a number of Oahu surf spots—from beaches all over the North Shore to Makaha and Waikiki. Paddling through the surf in cameos: Real-life Hawaii pro-surfers Keala Kennelly, Rochelle Ballard, Megan Abubo, Kalani Robb and Bruce Irons, among others.
