Cute little flick about a young, insecure young in Texas who ventures into the world of amateur roller derby, despite her mother's designs for her to be a beauty queen. Good story, well acted, and entertaining. Good for all ages.

Whip It, directed by Drew Barrymore, is a very good teen movie set in the world of women’s roller derby in Austin, Texas. It has a good soundtrack and a fun cast, including Barrymore, Ellen Page, Alia Shawkat, Marcia Gay Harden, Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis, Jimmy Fallon and more. It is a bit overly long; cutting out 10 to 20 minutes would have made it stronger. I recommend Whip It for teens as well as adults who are interested in roller derby and/or enjoy teen movies. I have not read the teen fiction book of the same title on which it was based. The movie is rated PG-13 for sexual content, language and drug material.

I liked it. It was fun and funny. Not a lot of deep controversies explored, although there were some thoughts of getting alone with mom and dad differently and how that plays out in sometimes unusual ways. I think a beginning 4
