In the late '70s when roller skating was a way of life, X (Bow Wow) and his pals ruled supreme. But when the doors of their local skating rink close, it marks the end of an era and the beginning of another that sees the boys venture into foreign territory -- uptown's Sweetwater Roller Rink, complete with its over-the-top skaters and beautiful girls. Through his preparation for the showdown of the season -- the Roller Jam skate off with the Sweetwater crew -- X manages to find himself and also help his dad (Chi McBride) get back on track.

Keep the horrendous computer generated special affects and overuse of sex to sell other movies, if you want to watch a film that was made from the heart, this is it. A genuine, touching story that seems to be absent in a lot of today's films. This one warmed my heart, and took me back to a great time in my life. Hopefully it will do the same for you...
It delivers on those counts, the plot is your typical Cinderella story competition type thing, there are no surprises.
Except maybe the appearance of Stefan Salvatore, erm, Paul Wesley as a dance skater......
The movie brought back some really great memories from my childhood...the roller rink and dance moves that go along with those days. The story was very cute, and I could totally see my niece (or any other teenage girl) getting into the movie. Definitely for the younger crowd...but a good one to just watch and enjoy.
Unfortunately, I need to warn parents about a couple of quick expletives that should have been removed and an unfortunate word reference by Epps in one his garbage man scenes. Other than that, "Roll Bounce" is one of 2005's best films - a worthwhile story for teens and parents alike.
Working on set for a month, all of us wearing crazy 70s clothes from wardrobe, was great!
The story line is pretty good.
The roller skating sequences are phenomenal tho' !
they brought in various professionals nationwide to be skaters in the film, even if they did not have speaking roles.
Wayne Brady is really as funny in person, ad libbing off the top of his head, as any character he has portrayed in tv/movies!
Great memories both of working on the set with all the great people, and watching the final film at the cinema!
