Not into Sport movies, but this one looks nice so let’s see how this goes! This is about a 17 year old girl from a small town in Texas named Bliss (Played by Ellen Page) who her mother makes her participate in a bunch of Beauty Pageants without even liking it. One day on a shopping spree she sees a flyer of a Roller Derby and decided to go with her best friend named Pash (Played by Alia Shawkat) There Bliss fell in love with the hardcore game and decided to go to the tryouts. She got pick up by the team called the Scouts (and yes they dressed as Girl Scouts) the team that always arrives in second place in a 2 team competition. Can Bliss help the team of losers win the championship? You have to watch the movie to find out.
Thoughts on the movie: From a Mighty Ducks kinda movie, the movie is pretty fun to watch and really entertaining. This was Drew Barrymore’s debut as a Director and she did a really good job, also stars in the movie as a kickass Scout player who always was looking for a fight. This movie sounds like a girly movie with almost all the cast being women, but hell no, it was rough as a men sport. What I liked about this movie is that Bliss character was only looking for a place to feel good and accepted, thinking that her parents would not approved of what she was doing. But in the end she finds that she was not the only one hiding something, her parents got their dirty little secret making them as immature as Bliss. The ending is really cool, is not what you would expect for this kind of flicks. This is one movie that I really wouldn’t care to watch over a over, this can be my new “Mighty Ducks” but in my grown up version :D
Will I recommend this movie?: Chicks kicking ass on roller skates, sure I will! (Girl Power!)
Thumbs up or Down?: It’s 2 thumbs up or I’ll punch you in the face! (joking! peace a love! ^_^)
