1970s roller-skate jams fuel this coming-of-age comedy, as X and his friends, who rule their local rink, are shocked when their home base goes out of business. Heading over to the Sweetwater Roller Rink, they find their modest talents are, at first, no competition for their trick skaters and pretty girls who follow their every move. Written by

The short skates with no toe stops and at least the breakdancing-like moves used in the film are associated with post-roller disco "jam skating." Both came onto the scene in the '80s. Roller disco skates had high-cut boots like figure skaters and had toe stops. See more »
My favorite Bow Wow movie next to Like Mike. This movie takes place in the summer of 1978, 16 year old Xavier(Bow Wow) enjoys skating and spending time with his friends, but this year has its set backs, his mother died a few months earlier, his favorite skating ring is closing down, and his father has been cold and distance from him. But one day Xavier and his friends go to another skating ring, but they are mocked by an awesome skater named sweetness and his gang. Xavier and his friends decide to enter an skate off contest to show them they're just as good. This movie had great skating scenes, and it also had great 70's music. I really enjoyed watching this movie, I loved Bow Wow's performance, I think he's growing as an actor. I can't wait to own this on DVD.
