Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's that happiest of surprises: a multiplex movie that genuinely respects its young audience. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's just "Footloose" goes to the roller derby. – Richard Roeper, Richard, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: [Whip It] treats its mostly female cast of characters with respect, and this is (sadly) a rare treat in cinema. Hannah Montana may be this generation's Spice Girl, but Bliss Cavender is the one really waving the 'girl power' flag. – Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, Oct 21, 2014

Fresh: Barrymore is just as determined to land some insightful and unexpected dramatic punches as she is with the inherent physical comedy for which the sport is renowned. – Simon Foster,, Aug 10, 2010

An Action Chick Flick?

Ok, I'm a dude. A real dude. I eat beef and lots of it. I can fix anything. So when a friend of mine picked this movie to see, I thought that I would just 'sit' through your average Chick Flick, complete with weak storylines, weak conflict, weak resolve. Nope. It's a Roller Derby with the preset and rehearsal of WWF. Oh wait, That IS Roller Derby. Anyway, I found it to be well done, an enteresting plot, and well written.
If I HAD to sit through any Chick Flick, I would pick this one.
Yes, it is a Chick Flick, but look at it this way, if your GF demands you rent a movie SHE would want to see, point her toward this one. ; )


honestly this movie took me by surprise. before i watched it i thought it was going to be a waste of my money. i was mistaken. it was fresh, something new, also very funny. i don't think they could have picked a better person then ellen page for the main role.

i definitely recommend for you reading this to give this movie a chance. it won't disappoint.


This is such a good movie and I would strongly reccomend everyone to see it! It has a great cast icluding Ellen Paige from Juno and also a great storyline and hilarious names! Watch it!
