Storyline

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 IMDb Editors

Actors give a bow!
2 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Roll Bounce is the best teenage film since The Sandlot. Like the Sandlot, it mixes great performances with some complex moments, and the thrill of having fun with your friends. Though it might be a little stupid in some parts, Bow Wow gives a performance that inspiring teenage actors should take a look at. But the most surprising part of the film was seeing how they made the actors and actresses look like they were actually in the 70's. From the glasses, hats, and Afro's, you believed it was films in the 70's. This family film will have you taping your feet or grooving to the music in Malcolm D. Lee's best direction in any movie so far. 10/10!
