Roll Bounce

Director: Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man, Undercover Brother)
Cast: Bow Wow, Brandon T. Jackson, Marcus T. Paulk, Rick Gonzalez, Khleo Thomas, Jurnee Smollett, Chi McBride, Nick Cannon, Wesley Johnathan
USA, 2005

Seen: July 15, 2006 on TMN on Demand

Reason to see: I wanted to watch something while I was cleaning up/organizing my front room for my housewarming/Bday party.

What a lovely surprize this film was. I was really anticipating just to kill time but I was sucked in. I will admit I'm partial to films set in the 70's, and throw in some coming-of-age/young love, 'other side of the tracks-ness', a competition and great music and I am sooooooooooo there. In addition, it was refreshing to see this with a male protagonist/point of view. I thoroughly enjoyed it & I hope you will too!

Giggle fest: All the scenes with 'Sweetness' and his crew.

Shannon's Overall View:
I really liked it
I've already re-watched it a few times
I'd recommend it, especially to anyone who owned a pair of rollerskates at any given point in their life

I really enjoyed this movie. I loved the sense of fun, humour, friendship, the inspirational "we can do it" tale, but holy cow, I didn't know there was going to be a strong need for Kleenex in there! I was touched by this movie too!
