Whip It

Genre: Drama, Comedy; Starring: Drew Barrymore, Ellen Page, Zoe Bell, Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis; Director: Drew Barrymore; Author: Shanna Cross; Release Date Wide: 10/02/2009; Runtime (in minutes): 111; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Fox Searchlight Pictures

Simply awful. I wanted to like Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut about a teen misfit (Juno’s Ellen Page) who finds confidence and girl-?power solidarity via Roller Derby. But Whip It is so bland and lifeless and by the numbers that you can only hope they had more fun making it than ? anyone did watching it. The EXTRAS are equally weak: a few deleted scenes. That’s it.
