Continue of the previous post.
Yes, we watched WHIP IT.


Bliss Cavendar (Ellen Page) has grown unhappy with
the apparent small-town Texas life of Friday night football
and beauty pageant competition, the football championed by
her father Earl (Daniel Stern) and the pageants by her mother
Brooke (Marcia Gay Harden). She commiserates with her
best friend Pash (Alia Shawkat) at their waitressing jobs.
Pash has a plan to get out: she is applying to Ivy League
schools. Bliss just wants to get out and needs a plan and a
calling. She finds it during a shopping trip to Austin, Texas
where she picks up a flyer for a Roller Derby event, schemes to
attend,gets invited to try out and becomes Babe Ruthless,
her alter-ego roller derby character. She makes the team,
lies about her age, works hard to succeed, experiences
her first love with the young lead singer of an Indie rock band,
gets disappointed in love, bonds with her new family of roller
derby girls, fights with her mother to escape the
beauty pageant and live her new dream as roller
derby star. She manages to reconcile all of this,
impress and win over her parents and
friends, and charts an ambiguous goal to move to Austin,
continue with Roller Derby, and live her new life.

It was really a great & hilarious movie!
I cant stop laughing loudly in the theater.
GOOOO, Babe Ruthless!
I rate it 5 / 5 stars!
watch it! :)
