A Talking Skateboard saves the day !
29 May 2018 | by altaredbeastSee all my reviews

Doesnt deserve the 2.9 stars it is currently rank at.

The movie IMO was actually quite entertaining and fun. Not sure what those who ranked it so low were expecting. But Let's be honest here. It's a low budget kids film with a talking skateboard. I have seen a lot of movies and have seen worse movies than this. But I am the kind of movie person who can get into and enjoy cheesy, overacted, silly movies like this. The movie I feel accomplished it's goal and is appealing to it's target audience. So if you like Skateboarding, Metal Music and Slapstick comedy. The movie is a lot of fun! Armchair Critics need not bother.

Please can someone tell me where that dog is ???
