January 18, 2018
A wan attempt to transpose the sports-movie formula onto the extreme-sports scene, Grind achieves extremes only of lameness.
February 27, 2007
Suitable entertainment for boys too young to shave.
August 21, 2003
Brody and Vogel anchor the cast, portraying likeable, charismatic dudes with a friendship that is genuine and enduring in spite of their differences.
August 21, 2003
Among those rare films that starts at the bottom and burrows downward.
August 21, 2003
The worst movie of the summer.
August 19, 2003
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.
August 19, 2003
A logo-laden celebration of the joys of sponsorship wrapped inside an innocuous teen-pic package.
August 18, 2003
I think actually guys and women, who love skateboarding, probably won't like this movie because it doesn't do it justice-the skill it really takes to be at the top of the game.
August 15, 2003
About 65 minutes of plot and 30 of slow-mo skating highlights, rather obviously performed by professionals dressed as the characters.
August 15, 2003
A lively, if at times juvenile, movie.
August 15, 2003
Attempts to combine the extreme sports visuals of a good Warren Miller ski film with the plot of a bad Tom Green picture and doesn't come close to landing on four wheels.
August 15, 2003
It looks like junk and even the few laughs there are feel like junk laughs.
August 15, 2003
If you stay awake, you'll certainly feel more than a little ground down after watching perhaps 15 minutes of skateboard footage padded out with nearly 90 minutes of strenuously unfunny toilet humor.
August 15, 2003
Humourless, hackneyed yawnfest.
August 15, 2003
Without tons of exciting skateboard footage or a strong appreciation for the skating culture, nothing remains but pure pain.
August 15, 2003
What Grind lacks in cinematic skill, it makes up for in heart, which is what most dudes-in-arms flicks are missing.
August 15, 2003
The skateboarding footage is underwhelming compared to Dogtown.
August 15, 2003
A tiresome teen romp that never leaves the ground, despite its many aerial stunts.
August 14, 2003
Laughs are virtually nil, despite a plethora of crude attempts at humor: jokes about vomiting, defecating, flatulence, bosomy babes.
August 14, 2003
A jaw-dropping exercise in futility.
