Some are comparing it to Adventureland. I can see that. It's similar in its earthtone, 80s quality and mood, but Adventureland is just a pretty good movie. A more common comparison is to Dazed and Confused. Other than using lame music from a particular era, I'm not so sure about this one. Except the guy that is an obvious Wooderson knockoff. I kept waiting for him to deliver a line similar to, "It'd be cooler if you did," or "High school girls: I get older they stay the same age." He did everything else from the hair to the attitude. He was redeemed a little bit when he jumped into the fight near the end.
There is just not a lot going on here. I like slow stuff so liked it enough, but it could be considered boring. Fernandez is not that impressive as the lead male. Greene is pretty adorable so is impressive in that sense. Not sure if that is acting or not. So, all in all, I would probably recommend it if you liked Adventureland as that actually is about as close a comparison as I can draw. Just be aware that Adventure is a better land than skate. Though damn, I sure would love to go skating and/or visit a music store.
