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 »

Your mouth looks like an explosion in a tin foil factory.
Oh yeah? Well at least I'm getting my teeth corrected. Look at yours. You need to stop chewing on those yellow crayons and start scrubbing with some Colgate yuck mouth.

That's not even fair. You can't say yuck mouth. And anyway, I'm allergic to toothpaste.

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. :)
