Synopsis Drew Barrymore makes her directorial debut with this feisty, female-friendly action-comedy. JUNO's Ellen Page stars as Bliss Cavendar, a young woman who longs to break free of her small-town bonds by joining the rough-and-tumble sport of roller derby in nearby Austin, Texas.4 star out of 5 -- Barrymore grew up in the movies and clearly has learned from the best....She effortlessly brings the story to life on the screen and, in fact, shows a flair for action with the gripping Derby scenes.What makes WHIP IT a blast is the action in the rink. What give WHIP IT heart is the pathos, pain and mettle-testing elements that accompany any serious athletic competition.3.5 stars out of 4 -- [I]t has guts, charm, and a black-and-blue sweetness....Ellen Page, still only 22, is the real thing.At moments, especially in the conflicted intimacy between Marcia Gay Harden and Daniel Stern as Bliss' parents, Barrymore shows real directing chops.4 stars out of 5 -- [V]ital and fun....Shauna Cross' smart script keeps things fresh and funny.3 stars out of 5 -- Ellen Page gets the follow-up role to JUNO that confirms her position as the junior leading lady with the most potential.3 stars out of 5 -- [I]t offers insight into a world rarely depicted in movies: women's sports....There's a lot of warmth here.[T]he real novelty is the tone, which -- thanks to Shauna Cross' charming script and Barrymore's gung-ho, effervescent direction -- is infectious.
