Roll Bounce Reviews
(Full review coming soon)
Xavier Smith lives in a broken home with his father. His mother unfortunately passed away and neither he nor his father has got over it. His only outlet is the local skating rink. When his local skating rink closes, he will have to go to a different roller rink. The new roller rink has rules and people who enforce them. The people who run the new rink may not be too keen to accept Xavier and his friends.
"Pimps got advice, too. Look, stop discriminating on the black man. In the immortal words of my cousin, Rudy Rambo III, from the East Side, there's three types of people in this world: people who make things happen, people who watch things happen, and people who get Pimp Slapped for not having Rudy Rambo's money on time."
Malcolm D. Lee, director of The Best Man; Undercover Brother; Soul Men; Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins; Scary Movie 5; The Best Man Holiday; and the upcoming The Best Man Wedding, delivers Roll Bounce. The storyline for this picture is extremely cliché and felt like a poor man's Drum Line. The acting was also below par and the cast includes Bow Wow, Chi McBride, Meagan Good, Nick Cannon, Mike Epps, Charlie Murphy, and Kellita Smith.

Roll Bounce was a movie I DVR'd when I found it on cable and knew my girlfriend had seen it and I never had. We watched it together...and I felt it was fairly awful. There were some decent bonding scenes between father and son, and I honestly thought Bow Wow did an okay job acting (for him), but the overall premise of the movie was bad and Nick Cannon was useless in this picture. Overall, I recommend skipping this movie.
