If you want a feel-good movie and have fun, this is it. It is Drew Barrymore’s first directorial effort. She goes for fun, and achieves it. The lead is played by Ellen Page. She is little and petite for a real kick-ass skater, but I don’t mind. The story is predictable but as I said it is all so much fun. Ellen’s bra in her love scenes is very pretty, but all the love scenes are romantic rather than erotic. Ellen Page absolutely throws herself into every role she has had. She can be a horrifying, vengeful 14 year old (Hard Candy), an unhappy conservative young student (Smart People)or of course Juno, the lovable pregnant 16 year old, and other characters. Each she does convincingly. If Ellen Page is in a movie, there is at least one reason to see it.

I shouldn’t neglect the others. The supporting actors are all great. Barrymore has a small supporting role but is a riot. The other skaters hold their own in delivering fun and support. The skating scenes are full of action but are not graphically gory. The names are fun too: Smashley Simpson, Babe Ruthless, Iron Maven, Maggie Mayhem etc. I’m not going to go into more detail. This enough for me. If you want fun, this is it. Maybe you noticed I used “fun” about 6 or more times. That says it all.
