Yeah, we're highly opposed to backtracking
My fault. Look, i'll just bring em out at night next time.
Bring'em out at night? No, you ain't gonna just bring 'em out at night next time. What, so the German shepherd adn the pit bull puppies could snatch the bag outta there and have empty diapers and cigarette wrappers and Snickers wrappers and Stayfree boxes laid all out in the middle of the street?

I love movies like this, where the main purpose of the movie is to just entertain. The plot is simple, but it works. You basically go through the life of Bow Wow's character from the point where his favorite skating place is closed down...and through the moments where he and his fellow friends get ready for a competition against the baddest (meaning good) skaters within the Chicago area. I will point out here that the character named Sweetness was classic!!
"I Skate Now"...lol...Watch the movie and you'll know what I'm talking about.
This movie brought back some old memories and the camaraderie between bow wow and his friends are quite enjoyable to watch. i was also pleasantly surprised by the fact that Bow Wow didn't annoy me in this movie because I fully expected him to. He's no Oscar-ready actor, but he was a 100 times better than i would have ever imagined him to be.
The movie is a lot of fun to watch and it's very family/kid friendly. I'll definitely buy this one and can't wait to watch it over and over. :)
