Critic Reviews for Grind
A wan attempt to transpose the sports-movie formula onto the extreme-sports scene, Grind achieves extremes only of lameness.
Brody and Vogel anchor the cast, portraying likeable, charismatic dudes with a friendship that is genuine and enduring in spite of their differences.
Among those rare films that starts at the bottom and burrows downward.
Without the charm or irrepressible imagination of the Farrellys or 'American Pie' writer Adam Herz, the filmmakers succeeds only in making their protagonists look like jerks, who well deserve the misfortunes that befall them right up to a happy fadeout.
Audience Reviews for Grind
I found this film to be pretty amusing. This film is perfect for mindless laughs. This is a very enjoyable comedy that has been unfairly criticized. I thought that Grind had plenty of charm and wit about it to make it a very good little film to watch with friends. The film is flawed, but is nonetheless fun with decent gags, decent story and good characters. If you're in the mood for a mindless comedy, Grind is that film. The film has its flaws, but for the most part it succeeds at being a humorous film due tom its main cast who are simply great in their roles. The film could be reworked a bit to make the material better, but for the most part, it succeeds very well at bringing on mindless laughs. This is just meant to be a fun film from start to finish, and it really pulls it off well. The cast do a fine job here, and I really don't see why this film was seen as bad entertainment. This is a fun film that shouldn't get the flack it has received, it's never anything great, but it definitely is better than what most people have claimed about it. The film is not meant to be taken seriously and I see it as a mindless comedy. If you're looking for the perfect comedy to watch with friends, then this is a film to check out. However keep an open mind with this one, and you may enjoy it. The film is fun for what it is, and despite its flaws, it's not as bad as what every critic has said about this film.
At the time, skateboarding was a big thing. Now tony hawk is no cooler than david blaine.
While it has heart, and compassion, and a great ending, not even the awesome soundtrack, or skate tricks can make up for the sometimes funny, mostly stupidly mundane scenes in the middle of the whole trip.
