Editorial Reviews

ROLL BOUNCE is the freshest, funkiest, coming-of-age comedy on wheels! It's the late '70s when roller skating to soul tunes and disco was a way of life for teen skater Xavier (Bow Wow) and his pals. But when their local rink closes, "X" and his crew must pull together as a team to try and win big money at a rival rink's Roller Jam skate off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! January 16, 2006
Format:DVD
Roll/Bounce is an excellent movie!

I was pleasantly surprised with just how good this film is. The movie has a great look to it and manages to come across as funny, touching, visually pleasing and very well acted.

Cant recommend this one enough! Roll on out and pick yourself up a copy.

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Movie was "Outta Sight". (lol) September 25, 2005
This ISN'T Joseph. I am his oldest daughter.

I love this movie. It potrays the seventies as a really cool time. The skating moves were awesome and the plot was really cool. The actors were great, especially Mixed Mike (Khleo Thomas) and X (Shad Moss a.k.a. Bow Wow). Although, Nick Cannon wasn't all that great.

The music was really great and it definitely fits the movie.

People you have got to go see this movie. It's hilarious and it will have you dancing in your seat the whole time.

4.0 out of 5 stars THIS is what a film should be! Absolutely wonderful! February 13, 2006
Format:DVD
It is terribly unfortunate that Roll Bounce came and went to the theater without much notice. It is unfortunate, because it is the kind of film that people should be watching today. It is a heartwarming, life affirming film about five boyhood friends who want to do nothing more than be able to skate (roller not in line) at their favorite roller rink.

The time is somewhere around 1978 and the boys are all black. It's a black film right? Wrong!

The script is not unique in its overall direction, because we've seen similar in Saturday Night Fever and Rocky. While the roller skating could be equated with the dancing from S N Fever, the emotional context of this film share far more in line with Rocky.

The race of the characters has nothing to do with the film and yet it has everything to do with the film. Huh?

It has nothing to do with the film, because the characters are real, living and breathing people with real problems. And yet, there is no discussion of drugs, gangs, or guns. Oh there's a sexual aspect to the film, but of the "wholesome" variety. We see how young boys react to looking at beautiful girls and how men deal with being "on the market" to single women. It's funny and charming, not base or purile.

Race has everything to do with this film too, because it demonstrates that a film made by and for the black community doesn't have to rely on four letter words, sex, drugs, gangs, and guns to be good (Not one pimp or prostitute is present). It demonstrates that films of social significance can be made highlighting the best parts of the black community not the worst.

So what's it about?

Xavier - or X as his friends call him (Bow Wow) and his buddies are all avid roller skaters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ahhhh, the 70s... December 12, 2005
By Angel
Format:DVD
A nostalgic movie in which kids actually knocked on doors to play with other kids. A time when kids would go outside, come back home before dark, and quench their thirst with a big pitcher of Kool-Aid fruit punch. "Ohhhh yeah!!!!"

No web surfing, no cable, no cell phones. No Ipod.

Living in the 70's was still groovy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice movie!! January 24, 2006
Format:DVD
I was a little skeptical at first but about 5 minutes into the movie I was convinced this was going to be pretty good. Being a 70's child myself the fashion, hairstyles, and music brought back a lot of cool memories and I found myself smiling a lot. All the actors (especially Nick Cannon) were very convincing as 70's charcters and the movie was well directed. Defintiely one for my personal collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rolling and Bouncing January 17, 2006
Format:DVD
This movie took me back to 1978, Wednesday nights, and the fun and joy I used to have at the skating rink.

I loved this movie because I came of age around the same time frame and I could relate to their love of skating.

The relationship between X and his father, following his mother's untimely death added a serious aspect to the movie. Bow Wow has come into his own as an actor and was enjoyable and believable.

The music was slamming!!!!

This is a great DVD to keep in your collection for when you just wanna hop in your time machine and head back to 1978.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! January 12, 2006
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this movie! It took me back to my childhood, growing up in hoods where you weren't afraid to allow your children to go out and play for extended periods of time. The part that really got me is when they looked up and the street lights were on. LOL...My mother said the same thing, make sure your home before the street lights come on. The music was fantastic, it made you wanna get up and move. I give this one the thumbs up!

I just bought this DVD on December 13th and today is the 17th and I've probably watched it 10 times already. Various family members have watched it with me repeatedly because it's a feel-good movie. It makes you remember the innocence of youth and the times when you were unsure of what the future would bring. I enjoyed Bow Wow's portrayal so much and think if he ever wanted to give up rapping, acting would be a good job for him to flourish in.

Brandon Jackson as Junior was also excellent in this movie, as were the other group of boys who helped Xavier (Bow Wow) overcome the passing of his mother and the tension with his father. Xavier and Curtis (Chi) had great father-and-son chemistry and I hope to see them together in something else in the future.

It was nice seeing Meagan and Jurnee team up once again (Eve's Bayou being their first movie together) and enjoyed the fact that two girls hanging around the same boy could be friends and not jealous adversaries.

Kudos to Mike Epps and Charlie Murphy for bringing the laughs... the pair were great with the delivery of their lines and had me busting a gut everytime they were on. Ricky Gonzalez as Naps and Marcus T. Paulk as Boo and Khleo Thomas asWhite Mike were equally amusing and entertaining to watch.

And Wesley Jonathan was great as Sweetness. He didn't have many lines but the man is FIONE beyond words and has the sexiest lips and rock-hard chest! I loved how the girls and women went nuts whenever Sweetness appeared on the screen. Sweetness and Xavier's rivalry on skates was breathtaking to watch. The choreography was too much. I didn't know watching others roller skating could be just as fun as doing it yourself.

I sure wish we could get more African American movies like this.
