Lots of tricks, lots of drama, and lots of swearing!! This film is a perfect movie for skaters and even none skaters alike to enjoy. Great acting by Paul Rodriguez and Ryann Dunn. The jokes that Ryan Dunn cracks are just hilarious and witty. Not a perfect 10/10 score for me, but a lot higher than this site gives it for sure. The story was great and it actually came to a conclusion properly and didn't lose track of itself. I felt angry and sad for Paul Rodriguez's character in quite a few scenes. I did not like Rob Dyrdek's role, i thought it was annoying, and he is not an actor, But a great skateboarder none the less. The acting from the father of Derek (paul Rodriguez) was the best acting in the film. A 8 out of 10 for me, great film, and easily watchable to the end and keeps you engrossed in the story.
