Trivia

In an interview, Jonah Hill admitted that he was afraid he would accused of being bigoted because of the repeated use of words like f*****t throughout the film and considered a shooting a scene where the kids debate over whether they should be using that kind of language. He showed the scene to producer Scott Rudin, who asked, "Would you guys have had this conversation back then?" When Jonah said no, Rudin said that the scene would be "more offensive to put that in the movie than to show it how it actually was." Rudin is gay. See more »

THE SKATEBOARDERS ARE COMING, THE SKATEBOARDERS ARE COMING...!
6 November 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

Jonah Hill's debut film as writer/director is an admirable piece of awakening. Feeling like an offshoot of Larry Clark's seminal 1995 film Kids, Hill takes a page from their playbook to chart the fascination of a latch key kid from a broken home (his brother beats him & it seems there is no father figure while the mother is off doing something) who falls in w/a gang of skateboarders who take him under their wing & give him a crash course on the bad things in life (drinking, smoking & of course skateboarding) which gives him a sense of purpose & belonging. An impressive list of needle drops are heard on the soundtrack (I picked out The Pixies, Bad Brains & The Mamas & the Papas to name a few) coloring the background of this low res effort which is a nice stepping stone for future efforts. Good work.
