Great movie!
28 November 2004 | by purpleduck20See all my reviews

Wow this is the best movie ever! Don't listen to everyone who is saying that it is bad. Most of them have all of the facts wrong which leads me to believe they were on the phone instead of paying attention to the movie.

Yes, there is a talking skateboard. The skateboard is so cool! I have one just like it now. It talks and everything! I found it on ebay.

I really have never seen such a funny, dramatic, and action packed film that was made with a low budget. There is even a love scene between the skateboard and Zack. It's kind of creepy the first time but it's really fun after you've seen it.

Go rent this movie! You will not regret it!
