Inspiring. Will make you want to go grab a pair of skates and hit the asphalt.
It just isn't that funny or interesting to watch.
One of the most entertaining movies I have ever seen, Whip It takes a formula that has been used to death, and somehow makes it new again. Drew Barrymore knocks it out of the park in her only directorial effort (she needs to direct another movie), and the performances are fantastic. Ellen Page shows again that she is the best actress working, and is incredibly believable as Bliss Cavendar, a young girl who wants to break away from her stage mothers agenda, and does this by joining a Roller Derby team. If I was asked by a friend to recommend a movie that would keep them entertained the entire time, this would be the film I would say. Not often do you find a lighthearted, well-written, well-acted, effortlessly entertaining movie, but this is one. Go see it.
Pretty good movie starring Ellen page about skating. The story a little generic and bland but Ellen page is the best.
a vigorous and loud whipping..
The game is intriguing and layered enough to invest in it and fortunately the maker too goes deep into it, keeping it a bit mellow and breezy alongside it. The structure of the script is rudimentary yet thoroughly pleasing and entertaining where each tiny factor is serving a greater purpose than it seems. The adaptation for screen by Shauna Cross (who wrote the original novel) isn't smart as it lacked better editing in it. For a debut director of a major motion picture, Drew Barrymore is a talent in her own depiction; offering a promising potential for future projects, she has done an adequate job. Drew plays it safe in here and follows the typical formula and embarks upon it step by step and reaches for the goal swiftly with confidence. It certainly is not your typical teenage feature but definitely leans towards it in some sequences but all of it is allowed as far as the audience is enjoying it and no one minds it. The feature is strong on performance level by the protagonist Ellen Page and her brilliant supporting cast like Kirsten Wiig, Drew Barrymore and even Jimmy Fallon on occasions; he is hilarious in here. Whip It has a vigorous and loud whipping coming from all the sides where the makers do raise appropriate questions through a fun nail-biting game sequences that keeps the audience on the edge of the seat.
Ang kulit ni Drew. Haha~ Galeng.
I really enjoyed it. thanks to my daughter for putting it on.
A very good movie with a lot of heart and laughs that will keep you entertained for the whole movie.
Bliss Cavender is an outsider. Living in a small town in Texas, just outside of Austin (a place where she can escape her small town life), and is forced to do beauty pageants, (which she hates), by her mother. She is desperate to be free and get to know herself more as an individual. "Whip it" is a star studded piece of what I call lyrical cinema. Ellen Page, Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Lewis, Drew Barrymore and so many more make this movie a strong alternative to the average teen movie. During one of her trips to Austin on a fluke, Bliss finds out about a roller derby match and convinces her best friend Pash to go. On another fluke she tries out for one of the teams and that's when Bliss's story begins. Wicked one-liners, the aspiration of Bliss finding herself and the line of characters makes this movie a definite must see. However, the cliches are a little over the top and obvious; there's also a love interest that makes us all throw up. So pop the bottle and "wine" up some friends, grab the perfect snack and enjoy Drew Barrymore's first and my personal favorite directed film.
A charming and brilliant feel good film. Whip It is a film you can't help but love to watch. You'll laugh, you'll cry but most of all you'll watch it again because this coming-of-age film has a certain charm you just can't resist.
