1970s roller-skate jams fuel this coming-of-age comedy, as X and his friends, who rule their local rink, are shocked when their home base goes out of business. Heading over to the Sweetwater Roller Rink, they find their modest talents are, at first, no competition for their trick skaters and pretty girls who follow their every move. Written by

The breakdancing-like moves and short skates with no toe stops are associated with post-roller disco "jam skating," which started in the 1980s. Roller disco skates had high-cut boots like figure skates and toe stops. See more »

It is so refreshing to see a movie about blacks that is decent and wholesome. This movie Roll, Bounce which is set in the 70's during the prime era of disco and roller skating.
This movie deals with two major plot points. The first is that of a competitive spirit of class and will. When Bow Wow's (X), hometown roller rink is closed they have to go uptown to a more ritzy skating place knowing as "SweetWater" which the king of that rink is a very arrogant skater pimp named "Sweetness". You have the epic battle of good versus evil in a way with "X" vs "Sweetness". The movie also just looks at what a normal teenager would be engaged in in the 70's.
X and his friend have nice banter and playful dialogue with each other. The second major plot point is of that of X and his father, who lost their mother and wife respectively and each of them are trying to deal with it. It is a touching scene in the movie when they both clash heads over their idea of their dead loved one. That scene was very intense.
This movie is very clean and family friendly. It was a nice movie in which I wouldn't mine watching again. Hollywood need to make more movies like this that don't include sex scenes and bad language. Excellent Job. I give this movie and 8.
This is a must see!
