Mitchell Goosen is sixteen/seventeen-year-old kid from California who loves to surf and roller blade. Yet his parents, who are two zoologists, were given a grant to work in Australia. The only problem was: Mitchell couldn't go with them. So, he gets sent to stay with his aunt, uncle, and cousin in Cincinnati, Ohio. When he arrives, he meets his cousin who is also his new roommate for the next six months: Wiley. Mitchell then goes to school and gets on the bad side the high school hockey players. Mitchell and Wiley end up enduring weeks of torture from the guys. Then, the big guys and Mitchell and Wiley have to learn to get along to try to beat the Central High School rivals in a competition down Devil's Backbone.Written by
Filmed when the X-Games (then called X-Games 101) started becoming popular and in-line skating was the craze. Chris Edwards (Walt) was a well known for his X-Games appearances and was one of the members of Team Rollerblade. See more »
When Mitchell arrives in Cincinnati it is obviously winter and a lot of snow can be seen, as the film goes on it looks more like Fall then winter. See more »

The perfect "cable" movie.
Is it just me, or has everyone seen this movie about a hundred times on cable? Call it a guilty pleasure, but every time it came on, I just had to watch. I think it must be Seth Green's "Wiley Man" (Which I'm sure had a throwaway line homage in Austin Powers during the counseling scene). I'm glad to see him make it in the business.
The movie itself? A California surfer pretty boy tries to fit in at a new school and wins everyone over (including the school hottie) by skating. Tres deep.
6 out of 10, but you just gotta watch it again and again.
