Whip It

Posted by lea at 1:36 PM
Watch it because:
  • Juliet Lewis is awesome as the bitchy captain of the opposing team
  • it's all about girl-power – tough chicks who bruise but don't cry
  • lots of warm and fuzzy friendship themes
  • awesome skater pseudonyms: Babe Ruthless, Smashley Simpson, Bloody Holly
  • some very good acting – except Drew Barrymore, who seemed to mistake this for a stoner movie and overplays her part (funny considering she actually directed it)
  • Maeby Funke appears as Bliss's best friend, Pash

Miss it because:
  • there's nothing particularly new: underdogs make good, girl comes of age
  • the emo love interest, which is kinda sweet but still... you know, emo
  • with the co$t of movie tickets, you could easily wait for the dvd
