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

Quotes

Byron: You know i dont like back tracking.
Victor: Yeah, we're highly opposed to backtracking
Xavier 'X': My fault. Look, i'll just bring em out at night next time.
Byron: 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?

fun rolling with Bow Wow
16 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
