I can't believe I'm starting this thread. This was a fun movie! I guess it got two thumbs up. I really enjoyed it, especially the skating. As a former roller rink rat (Skate City, Semoran Skateway, and All-American in the Orlando area) I really dug this. I was impressed with Chi McBride and Bow Wow, good acting. And the story doesn't suck. Check out Roger Ebert's review for one better than I can do. This movie will make you want to get skates again... and great classic music!
