This was a film I’ve had on my list to watch for a while and I had no idea why. I found it on Amazon Prime, and decided to have a watch.

Jimmy Fallons MC (‘Hot Tub’ Johnny Rocket) – Whip It

I loved it to be honest and I have no idea why. It was easy to watch, nicely shot and the storyline although fundamentally been done a million times before was made amusing by the roller derby setting.

Directed by Drew Barrymore, the lead is played by Ellen Page I feel in the type of role which she’s perfect for.

Favourite character though has to be Jimmy Fallon’s MC (‘Hot Tub’ Johnny Rocket) – has all the best lines and comes across perfectly.
