During the skate scene, the beginning of the race shows them coming down Springdale Road - which is in Ohio, about 10 miles from Cincinnati. A few scenes later during the same race, the skaters are coming down Devou Park hill - which is in Northern Kentucky. The entire race scene bounces back and forth between Cincinnati, suburbs and northern Kentucky. See more »
If you don't go into this movie with overly high expectations, but just go with the flow, this movie can be very enjoyable. So it isn't Academy Awards material. How many movies are? Anyway, for a teen high-school love story, this isn't bad. I enjoyed the skating, even though I have been to Pittsburgh enough times to recognize most of the streets, and certainly the skyline. I am more bugged by the movies made in Canada that try to pass themselves as U.S. locations (that tax credit must be a real biggie!)
If you like fish-out-of-water movies or H.S. love interests, give Airborne a look.
I hope Mitchell eventually made his way here to O'ahu and surfed our waves! Now there is Airborne! (especially the latest thing, Kite surfing!)
