Storyline

While the rest of his high school graduating class is heading to the same old grind of college, skateboarder Eric Rivers and his best friends, Dustin, a goal-oriented workaholic, and misfit slacker Matt have one last summer roadtrip together to follow their dream of getting noticed by the professional skateboarding world--and getting paid to skate. When skating legend Jimmy Wilson's skate demo tour hits town, the boys figure that as soon as he sees their fierce tricks, he'll sign them up for his renowned skate team immediately, right? Unfortunately, the guys are intercepted by Jimmy's road manager and they can't get their foot in the door, much less their boards. But they do get some free advice: keep skating, stay true to yourself, and stay in the game--if you're good, you'll get noticed. Following their dream-- and Jimmy's national tour--Eric, Dustin and Matt start their own skate team, reluctantly sponsored by Dustin and his college fund. After recruiting laid-back ladies man Sweet... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Harmless fun
6 March 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Funny road trip movie about four skateboarders shadowing a major tour, hoping to compete. A variation of those endless ski comedies we endured in the 80s and 90s. Some truly funny bits. The four young actors prove reasonably talented, especially Joey Kern of "Cabin Fever" as Sweet Lou, a shades-wearing, Starsky & Hutch-type throwback who proves irresistible to all but one woman -- the one exception being an amply endowed brunette who proves to be hugely pregnant. The film does not over-rely on the skateboarding, which is excellent by the way, instead concentrating on the four young men and their efforts to overcome a series of comic and some not-so-comic mishaps along the road to skateboard stardom. Gross-out jokes are kept to a minimum in favor of character development, which ironically may not play with the 15-year-olds who are the primary audience for this kind of film. Wait until you get a load of the parents of one of the quartet: The father is played by the one-and-only demented Randy Quaid, and the story is that they ran off years ago to become circus clowns. So the son understandably has come to hate clowns. Some of the sequences involving these two push the movie into near-surreal territory, sort of like "Pee Wee's Big Circus" without the circus. Bam Margera fans take note: He has a quick cameo at the beginning of the flick, and is seen briefly in a later sequence. Put your mind on hold and enjoy this silly but enjoyable comedy romp. It's no worse, and a heckuva lot funnier, than that Disney TV flick a couple of years back that was, if memory serves, a teen-oriented update of HANS BRINKER, substituting skateboards for skates.
