Whip It 2009 111 PG-13 3.0 out of 5 ducks
Bliss isn't happy with her small-town Texas life of Friday night football and beauty pageant competition (with her parents Earl and Brooke involved in both). She and pal Pash form escape plans: Pash is applying to college elsewhere, but Bliss doesn't hit on anything until she's in Austin, and is invited to attend a roller derby event. She makes the cut, gets on the team (and has to lie about being 22 instead of just 17), falls in love with band guy Oliver, and watches that fall apart when she sees him on tour with his arm around another girl (who's wearing the shirt Bliss gave him). Pash heads off to Columbia University in her goal to get out of town. Bliss resigns herself to another pageant the same night as a big roller derby game, but her mom suggests she do what she wants to make herself happy; Bliss opts for the pageant, but her heart isnít into it. Dad comes around to mostly wanting to see Bliss happy, so he signs the parental consent form (since her age has come to light), and he picks up the rest of the teammates and then to the pageant to get Bliss. Bliss admits to mom she's still doing pageants for mom, and they go to the game. There, Bliss sees Oliver, who explains the girl was a groupie who climbed into their van and took the shirt; he claims he was too busy to return her call -- she asked for the shirt back. Bliss plays hard at the big game, and even though they lose to the rough-and-tumble other team (the Holy Rollers), Bliss is determined to stick with it and move to Austin. At home, we see dad put up a sign with Bliss' jersey number on it, like the neighbor does with his son's football jersey numbers. Moving film reel
