Saturday Night Boredom.
22 October 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

In theory, a disco comedy can only be attractive. If you have liked classics like Saturday Night Fever or the underestimated Can't Stop the music, you could be on the false impression that Rollerboy is necessarily one of those forgotten teen-comedies you'll have fun watching.

On the contrary, it's a total failure. Ovidio G. Assonitis, the producer who have ruined James Cameron's first feature Piranha2, decided he could direct a "disco hit" on his own, providing he had some fresh music and solid supporting actors.

Alas! Nothing of the sort. None of the songs could be worth mentioning and the cast is either filled with unbearable hams (Eddie Deezen or Paul Benedict, both awful!) or unexpected but totally misused guest star (Christopher Lee who could have been funny if only he had been given a little bit more to do). At first, the audience could be charmed by the bitter-sweet tone of the film, but very soon, the sour feeling of being cheated at prevails. This pointless little love story couldn't be more irritating. None of the so-called gags works and the terrible acting of the leading couple makes the disaster complete.

No matter how hard you'll try, you'll never like this one.
