Whip It (2009)

Director: Drew Barrymore. Cast: Ellen Page, Marcia Gay Harden, Zoe Bell, Jimmy Fallon, Kristen Wiig, Drew Barrymore, Daniel Stern. 111 min. Rated PG-13. Sports.

A bad director can ruin everything. Ellen Page (Juno, Hard Candy) has already shown considerable acting charms in her short career, but Drew Barrymore's weak directorial debut makes even Page boring. Too many idiotic shots, too many nonsense lines, and too many lame characters make this roller derby movie impossible to connect with. And during the end credits, we have the obligatory blooper reels - as though we care. In the realm of rollerskating, nothing matches Rollerball (not the 2002 version!).
