Exactly as Advertised!
We saw Roll Bounce this afternoon. It was exactly what I expected it to be. A predictable, exaggerated, silly, corny, inauthentic 70’s nostalgia-fest.
We loved it! Seriously, it’s probably in our top five for the year thus far. It was so much fun. Even the dramatic, serious moments were good and not laughable. My husband said afterwards he was thinking how funny it was that an emotional scene in an otherwise fluffy, insubstantial feel-good movie could evoke more feeling in him than all two hours of The Constant Gardener, for example.
Anyhow, we’ve both been a good mood ever since, we just had a great time at the movies. It was nice to see a good, clean, wholesome family movie that doesn’t suck.
Fun in the Summertime….
I highly recommend this movie.
We’ve seen it time and again: the coming-of-age story. The difference between Roll/Bounce and the other coming-of-age teen romps of late is that this movie is actually sweet, charming and funny.
A wholesome movie (perhaps two profane words in the entire film) about kids having fun and the obligatory storyline of looking deep into yourself and facing one’s demons.
Bow Wow as X(short for Xavier) was very capable in this role, but the standout performances were delivered by Jurnee Smollett as Tori, the lone, awkward girl in clique of friends and Brandon T. Johnson as Junior, X’s best friend and resident jive talker.
At times the writing seemed clunky, but due to the energetic performances and the roller-skating sequences, it really didn’t matter.
It sounds clichéd, but this movie is really an all-ages crowd pleaser.
