Well, it's definitely among the best roller skating films made in Nova Scotia, that's for sure!
24 February 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Roller Town" is a modern roller disco film that was made in the hotbed of roller skating, Nova Scotia. In many ways, it's a parody of "Roller Boogie", though I think "Roller Boogie" is a funnier film simply because it was never intended as a comedy--but was so unintentionally funny. Occasionally, "Roller Town" almost managed to be a good film...almost. I will admit that it did make me laugh a few times (such as with the Roller Skating Conservatory and talk of the girl being a 'classically trained' skater!), but most of the time the jokes fall very flat. And, a few times the jokes are just disgusting and stupid--such as references to oral gratification, urination and the OVER-FREQUENT use of words for genitalia instead of actual punchlines for the jokes. In many ways, it seems like a homemade film made by some middle schoolers--albeit reasonably talented middle school kids! My recommendation is that if you'd like to see a 70s retro film, try "Black Dynamite". It's so much funnier and better made and a much better sendoff of decade.
