Movie Description:
In a town near Austin, Bliss Cavendar's strong-willed mom believes Bliss, at 17, can win pageants - the key to a happy life. Bliss isn't the beauty pageant type: she's shy, quiet, and has just one friend, Pash, her fellow waitress at a diner. Things change for Bliss when she discovers a women's roller derby league in Austin, tries out, proves to be whip fast, and makes a team. Now she needs to become someone tough on the rink, keep her parents from finding out where she goes twice a week, and do something about a first crush, on a musician she meets at the derby. Meanwhile, mom still sees Bliss as Miss Bluebonnet. Things are on a collision course; will everyone get banged up?

However, Tariq and Anna's fledgeling romance is bound to bring suffering not only to her family but also her community. As a result, bent on retaliating, Christina summons up the courage to take part in the Revolution, and, unintentionally, she becomes a local symbol of the ever-growing Greek resistance movement, inspiring her fellow brothers and sisters-in-arms to take action.

Underrated Movie Gold

Drew Barrymore created a stunning film with Shauna Cross's script, and you would never know it was her first time directing. The characters and story are so well crafted and there's never a dull moment.I love the way this movie feels nostalgic and makes you remember that time in your life where you're trying to figure out who you are, and you have that one best friend that gets you through the tough times. I'm impressed by the actresses' skating abilities and making this all look so natural to them. Marcia Gay Harden is total perfection as Bliss Cavendar's mother, bringing such a realness to her character, and Ellen Page and Alia Shawkat have realistic chemistry that pulls you into their friendship.This isn't a raunchy movie and I find it totally enjoyable. I can watch this movie over and over and I never get sick of it - it's become a classic for sure!
I got curious about this movie because I've been interested in rollerderby (while the last time I roller skated was around time when I was7-10, oops), because the movie has so many women on it, and lastlybecause Zoë Bell is in the film. It's always a pleasure to see her workon screen, whether it's acting or stunts.

While I've never been into sports, or sport films, I loved Whip It! Thematches between the leagues were so intense and thrilling!

I'm so delighted because of how many women were in this film, not justthe characters but the director and writer as well. And there are somany different kind of female characters in the story, all having theirown ideologies, all having different personalities. There arecharacters who are so typical good characters, but they are stillinteresting. There are assertive women, violent women, competitivewomen, mean women, nice women, mothers, daughters... So many differentkind of characters. It's almost rare, because so many films have around80 % male characters.

The structure of this film may be quite predictable, but the otherqualities of Whip It make up for that - the story is emotional in manydifferent ways, and it's just fun to watch. And after all, isn't mostof Hollywood pretty predictable these days? And the story has manydifferent levels, it's not just about the sport. It's about the maincharacter Bliss growing up, it's about her relationships with herparents, her friends, the friends and rivals she makes while playingroller derby. And while the main point of the film is Bliss finding herpassion and what makes her happy, the story doesn't forget all theother details that push her forward or pull her back.

The music was well chosen. It keeps the viewer psyched, and the songswork when you're listening to them outside of the movie. I have severalof them on my playlists.

Simply put, Whip It is an amazing movie. It touches, thrills anddelights. There's only one thing I'd change, and it would be deletingmost of the useless heterosexual romances and add some women lovingwomen there. It would suit the film and make it so much more better,but I'm happy with what I got.

Gentle Do-si-do...

Whip It was a movie I wanted to like more than I did... The storyline was a little bit twee and predictable, with all of the 'small-town underdog' sports clichés... but, on the other hand, first-time director Drew Barrymore's handling of things is as charming as Barrymore herself seems to be... so, if you don't mind predictability, like roller derby, and just want a non-taxing feelgood film, then this could be it...

It has a great soundtrack, too, so that's in its favour.

Barrymore seems to be fond of fairy tales, so if you like miraculous yet never less than wholesome transformations, and inspirational sloganeering such as "Be Your Own Hero!", then this will probably suit you a treat... It's not that I'm against those things, it's just that these warm fuzzies sometimes come at the expense of teaching you about the realities of life... but, if you've seen "Never Been Kissed" before and enjoyed it, then at least you'll know the type of thing to expect.
