In a town near Austin, Bliss Cavendar's strong-willed mom believes Bliss, at 17, can win pageants - the key to a happy life. Bliss isn't the beauty pageant type: she's shy, quiet, and has just one friend, Pash, her fellow waitress at a diner. Things change for Bliss when she discovers a women's roller derby league in Austin, tries out, proves to be whip fast, and makes a team. Now she needs to become someone tough on the rink, keep her parents from finding out where she goes twice a week, and do something about a first crush, on a musician she meets at the derby. Meanwhile, mom still sees Bliss as Miss Bluebonnet. Things are on a collision course; will everyone get banged up? Written by

When i saw the list for Tiff i saw Drew Barrymore's movie and then i saw that she was actually directing it. I went to see it yesterday for and special screening in my town and i was really amazed by the touch of entertainment that Drew and Ellen offered us in this girl power type of movie. It is all about the roller's a hobby that is not that known and popular but after this movie it changed completely the meaning of roller. Drew Barrymore's acting was totally carefree she was really spontaneous Canadian actress Ellen Page did another great performance after her brilliant performance in Juno. On the whole Whip It! Is made only to entertain the movie is for entertain people not getting critics attention or whatever and i think Drew made an excellent job in this department. I'm a guy an i say "you have to watch this movie!'' Overall 8,5/10!
