    Synopsis


    Whip It
    Drew Barrymore makes her directorial debut with Whip It!, the story of an ex-beauty pageant contestant named Bliss (played by Juno's Ellen Page) who leaves her crowns behind after joining a roller-derby team. While her mother would prefer that Bliss unlace her skates and step back before the judges, the rebellious teen instead seeks the wisdom of rowdy mentor Malice in Wonderland (Kristen Wiig) in learning the tricks of the circuit track. The Mandate Pictures production was written by roller derby star-turned-screenwriter Shauna Cross. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

      'Whip It' stars Ellen Page as Bliss, who is very similar to the character she plays in 'Juno': hyper aware of everything around her and able to make witty commentary about it. While the sports empowerment film are standard in Hollywood this one puts the fresh spin of focusing it on female roller derby. A strong supporting cast of Marcia Gay Harden as her mother, Daniel Stern as her father, and Kristen Wiig, Eve and Drew Barrymore (in her directorial debut) as her teammates. Juliette Lewis as the villain is ridiculous is somewhat unnecessary.

      Drew Barrymore makes her directorial debut with "Whip It", and she sets the bar quite high. A wonderful cast and great story fill this film with tons of fun and laughs. The Blu-ray has fantastic video & audio presentations. A great title to add to your collection

      Drew Barrymore directs this film about a young girl who chooses to join a female roller derby rather than be the prissy girly girl. Tough, smart, and funny... This film shows that being yourself is always the way to go.

      This movie gave me my first look into roller derby, and in fact inspired me to join a derby team. It's not a perfect movie, but it's entertaining. I only wish the extras were more extensive.

      The film could've suffered from many issues, but its interesting story and the chemistry between its female cast provides for a funny, touching, coming of age film.

      The movie was very basic and not very complex. The comedy was good, but to really enjoy it you must not expect much going into it. Just a laid back silly comedy.
