Pete Hammond Boxoffice Magazine It's no Lords Of Dogtown. Rated: 2.5/5 Jun 19, 2009 Full Review Chuck Wilson L.A. Weekly First-time director Chris Zamoscianyk nicely captures the boozy, profane silliness of teenage boys on the loose, while drawing believable performances from a cast comprised largely of nonactors.

Audience Member One of the few skateboarding movies and it's a good one Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the few skateboarding movie, And it doesn't disappoint. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member this movie is awesome and Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member best movie ever saw :3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely phenomenal. Heartbreakingly dramatic, so funny it will make you cry, and surprisingly well written. This is a story about Derrick (Paul Rodriguez), who wants to be a pro skater. Plain and simple. He wants to perform a trick that has NEVER been done before called the NAC (a treyflip to crooked grind), which his friends (Rob Dyrdek, Ryan Dunn, and Adam Wylie) think is impossible. I adore this film. Everyone here gives great performances, really grounded and nonglorified ones as well. This isn't a glamorized depiction of a guy becoming a star. This is gritty and realistic, and it makes for some incredible dramatic tension. The screenplay (which Rob Dyrdek helped pen) Is amazing. It's really funny, down to earth and not over the top. The performances are great all around, especially the central group. The stand out in my opinion is caught between Ryan Dunn and Paul Rodriguez, who both turn in awesome performances. 95% of the actors in this film have NO experience in acting and they rocked it. The direction is competent with just enough flair to distance itself from other movies of the same nature, but its nothing to write home about. If I had to point out any flaws, I'd probably say it would be that its honestly too short. I didn't want it to end and I wanted to see more of these characters. They had really great chemistry with each other and honestly I didn't want to leave this world. This kind of movie is inspiring to those of us who want to follow our dreams, show the world and those who tell us we can't do something that we can. Its a shame this film didn't get the attention it deserved, and I totally recommend you see it whether you're a skater or not.
