Recent studies of thermal molecular motions at polymer surfaces are reviewed. Although many arguments have been still going on, many results support a consistent notion that surface molecular motion is much more vigorous than that in its interior bulk region. Finally, surface dynamics at temperature below its bulk glass transition is also reviewed.
