Trivia

According to Jonah Hill, the biggest influence in making the film was creating a reverse skate video where the skating is very minimal and it was all about the people connecting. See more »

Goofs

The film is said to take place in 1996 yet Stevie and his brother play PlayStation (1) with dual analog controllers.

Jonah Hill presenting life in 90 minutes.
26 December 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

As Jonah Hill debut ... bravo ,, he aced it both ways,, directing and writing ,, the movie has solid plot ,, as i was a 10 years old kid, Back in the mid 90's, even though i wouldn't say i relate to the events per say "smoking and drinking and all" but I have just felt it through the lingo, trying to fit in , find your group of friends and the music, Oh my!! the music was and emotional captivation. .. anyway , the script was really good ,, so balanced ,, when it gets somewhat slow, just for a second it picks up real fast..

The cast was amazing ,, don't know how these kids are or how they found them but they did one perfect job,, first time seeing Sunny Suljic ,, wow ,, his face and acting skills we really good,, as for Lucas Hedges "the brother" i mean i knew him ,, i think he was nominated for an Oscar some years back ,, he was good too.. the other kids , F#ck-sh!t, Fourth Grade, Ray they were a perfect fit for the roles. and Na-kel Smith first movie ,, and his emotional scene was wow.

Final say,, I don't think the movie is specifically about skateboarding as much as it's about friendship/ family/ trying to fit in and about life, Just life, so Recommended.
