This was a good movie . Love Ellen Page
Great balance between drama and excitement.
Pretty good story line, and enjoyable debut for Drew Barrymore as a producer. However "whip it" kinda felt like a roller coaster;the balance between comedy and drama wasn't well thought trough. In general, an agreeable movie for all those who enjoy the mixture of freedom and responsibilities.
What an awesome surprise! While Whip It does stick to the whole 'sports underdog' narrative formula, this movie is anything but mediocre like I was expecting. It's actually refreshing, joyful, and a whole lot of fun. Drew Barrymore proves that she has plenty of potential as a director - she gives Whip It a fresh punk-rock feel, and gets good performances all around from her talented cast. Ellen Page is excellent in a role that's surprisingly different from her Juno MacGuff. Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Lewis, and especially Kristen Wiig are also fantastic - and I was happy to see Death Proof's cute and badass Zoe Bell show up in a small role. I definitely recommend Whip It - it's not incredibly original nor will it change your life, but if you're just expecting great fun then you'll come away satisfied.
This was an extremely fun movie. Easily a great movie that can appeal to both sexes very well. The characters work very well and you don't have any of those "poorly casted" actors that ruin good scenes in the movie. After seeing this movie I felt like putting on roller-skates and beating the piss out of people.
fun funny and touching but never is more than a better than average teen comedy
Great young adult film! Juliette Lewis adds interest and maturity to a fun, eclectic cast. Drew Barrymore puts rollar derby drama back on the map. Good girlfriend movie.
Whip It! was like a bad John Hughes movie...except i didn't enjoy it...

Juliette Lewis is a bitch from hell in this one and she looks awesome! Drew Barrymore was funny and her directorial debut is somewhat believable...good enough for her first try.....loved it when Juliette called the timid little brat a suck up and threw her into a locker...that was classic!

Ellen Page better watch out or she might just get typecast as the brooding alterno-chic who's mature for her age....oh wait! TOO LATE!

the soundtrack was mediocre...it had all the right punk songs for the Hot Topic generation...typical punk anthems by the quintessential punk favorites......nothing original. it needed WAY more rockabilly, 'cuz that's what most derbygrrls are currently into these days.

i happen to know a few gals on the roller derby team in the city i live in and their lives are NOTHING like this movie! their blue hair is NOT clipped on and definately NOT dyed that way accidentally....they don't have politically correct tattoos in all the politically correct places on their bodies. they don't sit around and bond over integrity, high-fiving eachother like football players, or gathering around the "queen bitch" of the rink.

overall, this was an enjoyable flik for young women who DIDN'T get caught up in the Twilight craze, and no doubt will start a roller derby trend for awhile...and that's a plus, 'cuz it's an very underrated sport!
i would suggest everyone go and watch a game at least once! take a group of friends out for a night of slicin' and dicin' by some of the baddest chics around or even join a team yourself!

...but if your a Hot Topic junkie or if your blue streak is a clip-on, you might get skate-checked for being a poseur!

BETTER BEEF UP, BIOTCH!
One of my favorite movies of the year. Welcome to the world of directing Drew!
Great Soundtrack - and I just love Ellen Page! =)
