It's all but impossible to imagine a 103-minute narrative that includes a broader range of the mustiest clichés known to humankind.

Celebrates its mediocrity with much skating and dance.

Big hair, tight shorts, crappy skating, terrible acting. And Linda Blair.

Audience Reviews for Roller Boogie

I don't know why anyone thought rollerdisco was a sport that could be made successfully into a film. It's okay, but not as good as it thinks it is.

½

Four words: Linda, Blair, Disco, Skates. Need I say more?
Ok here's some more: terribly dated, totally predictable, badly acted. Yet it's kind of like a car crash that you just feel compelled to look at, when you know you should be looking away.
Ultimately good cheesy fun and not much more.
This film is listed among the 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made in Golden Raspberry Award founder John Wilson's book THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE.
