Ok, so Grind is not the movie you want to watch if you're looking for a great award winning flick. The acting's ok, but not the best. The humor is awesome, but not if you're looking for particularly intelligent comedy. All in all, it's a funny movie, if you're simple (such as myself) and get easily amused by nifty skate tricks, this is for you. The guys aren't genius material, nor is it a movie to live by, but if your alternative is not particularly exciting, I'd definately say check out Grind. It's a keeper.

This movie was straight jacked. I won't even lie, I only went to go see it because Bam Margera was in it, and I thought Ehren from Jackass was going to have something to do with the production of the movie. If you're not a pre-teen or head over heels in love w/ Bam Margera, then this movie is not for you. The stunts and 'funniness' was PREDICTABLE. The 'funny lines' I didn't even find them funny, but the 10 year old sitting next to me seem to crack up and die laughing. The only thing I can say good about this movie, is the appearences, they have a lot of nice special appearences. One would be skater, Mike V., Preston from Jackass, and the Swedish band Blindside. But, if you're looking for a GOOD laugh, buy Haggard or some of the cKy stuff.

Grind's plot line is outlined in the Amazon capsule: teenage guys on the verge of college hit the road in hopes of getting a skateboarding sponsorship deal. Along the way, they become better friends and do some skating.

If I didn't know anything about skateboarding, I might find the whole skateboard culture thing a little obnoxious, but the guys are likeable enough, even if their characters are a little flat and predictable (the dying-to-get-signed skater, the clown - who is awesome, the reluctant tagalong and the womanizer) and the challenges of the road plus their solutions are amusing enough.

In terms of the skateboarding, there are some nice sequences and the cinematography of those beats most skater pron. I dug the skating and wished there was more. There just wasn't enough. My favorite sequence was the hotel pool - that was awesome. But the ramp riding at the end was incredible and the way it was filmed was first rate.

Do I recommend it? Depends. If you're looking for a new take on the teen genre, this isn't it. If you're looking for the ultimate skater movie, this isn't it either (it doesn't yet exist). If you're looking for a couple of sequences of rad skating interspersed with a thing storyline, then GRIND might be the ticket.

I have to admit that the only reason I rented this movie in the first place was because of Adam Brody but by the end of the movie I was like WOW!!!!!!!I loved it!It has great jokes and has a load of great actors in it!Mike Vogel[The Texas Chainsaw Massacre],Adam Brody[The O.C.],Joey Kern[Cabin Fever],and Vince Vieluf[Ratrace].And for all the people who dislike this movie I'm sorry that you are legally "BLIND"!!!This is a great film for skaters and a great movie for people who don't skate,like me.MY friend and I are 12 and play soccer and we love this movie!!!So for anyone who wants to watch a good movie then rent Grind!!!And after you watch it it will make you want to start skateboarding!!!!!!

ok, if you wanna know how good grind is, just listen to me...
this movie is about 4 guys who go on a journy to let a pro skater see how good they are. so along the way there's lots of laughs and cool skateboard scenes. they even end up getting there car stolen! well anyway if you are a skater i think you will enjoy it, but if you aren't i dont think u will.. i am a skater and i enjoyed every second of it. so in conclusion, this movie has lots of laughs, tricks, and even some camios by famous dudes... so if u love skatin check this movie out its a blast.

I was mainly interested in watching this for Tom Green's cameo, which turned out to be not very funny, but the rest of the movie made up for it. It achieves a good balance between gags and heart, keeping you laughing at the stupid situations the guys get themselves into, but caring enough about them to want to see them succeed. A quality generic teen road buddy movie. As good as any of the American Pie movies or anything else in the genre.

Mike Vogel, Vince Vieluf, Adam Brody and Joey Kern were great together. I have watched this movie over and over. Vince made me laugh a lot! I'm looking for grind two-maybe it will show up sometime and maybe not. I gain a new appreciation for skateboarding! I don't understand the lack of insight from the other reviewers. Maybe they could try it and see if they could do a better job?

This is a fun, stupid comedy. Anyone who has ever had a group of crazy friends can relate to, and laugh along with, these characters.
