Whip It(2009)

I honestly enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Ellen Page does great (as always), and although the other characters are basically types, the actors still manage to keep them interesting (especially Bliss's best friend and teammates). The sctipt was moderately predictable, and director Drew seemed to treat things mostly as one big party, but that still didn't detract from the fun. Despite the obvious "grrl power" stuff, it's a good movie with some awesome roller derby sequences that are intense enough to get any sports fan's fist pumping a little.
