When Kevin (Marshall Allman) looks for a way to escape his
back-breaking summer job, he enlists in the kitchen at an extreme
summer camp with the hopes of spending his breaks on the half-pipe. But
Kevin gets more than he bargained for when he teams up with his fellow
extreme skateboarder dishwashers, The Dishdogz. He'll have to be more
radical than the competition and win the heart of the girl (Haylie
Duff) if he's going to keep up with his new crew. But before he does,
he'll have to get all his work done, if he's to avoid a thrashing from
his surly boss Tony (Luke Perry), who's hiding a secret that's truly
old school. In the end he learns the true meaning of skateboarding and
how to never give up..

I very like this movie.
Interesting and very cool.
this movie was totally amazing..i really want to watch it.
i really really think this would be a dang good movie.
I came to see Luke Perry and all I got was this decent movie
I'm sure the concept is a difficult one to organize, a skate movie
where prominent and exciting boarding is featured along with an
interesting storyline. They pulled that off immensely. I know nothing
about the wheels lifestyle except for the fact that there is one,
(albeit not a huge one, which explains the understandable financial
success of this film) but there were a lot of cool, thrilling spots
that were coordinated to make this movie fun. This isn't such a simple
feat, as I do recall going to the park once in hopes of being blown
away in real life based on what I saw on TV. It's a lot different, to
say the least. People just skate, as apparently not much glamorous
exhibitioning goes on until you are an incredible pro. And that's not a
dig at the skaters, as they don't care about the fancy shmancy world of
selling out. The message of this film is actually the true life creed
of these skaters, live and play for yourself, not for whose watching.
In respect of the story and style, well done.
Speaking of style, I also really like the director's desire to create a
bit of realism in a Hollywood world of no mistakes. A cop struggles to
rip his paper off his clipboard, main characters stuttering a few times
trying to get their words out, both of these instances not being part
of a overall storyline. It just happens and is ignored by the others as
a regular part of life. Not everything is perfect, and the director got
that across subtly. Once again, nice job.
Then there's the rest of the film. I mainly saw this to see my favorite
actor Luke Perry, and for the first time in my life of watching his
many movies and shows, I was disappointed. I loved him in 90210,
Windfall, John from Cincinatti, A Gunfighter's Pledge, even Alice
Upside-down, but he clearly was either rebelling against his given role
or the acting director just didn't know how he was supposed to get it
out of him (also a possibility, since some other characters also seemed
out of place; the comic-relief heel, Palmer character just seemed
awkward, not funny, as his mannerisms were not spot-on). The Tony role
was supposed to be threatening and tough at first, a guy you would
think just came out of prison or Hell's Angels, and then was supposed
to warm up to us, allowing hints of his friendliness to trickle in. The
former never occurred. Instead of applying his masterful Gunfighter
meaty act to the head of the cafeteria at Point X camp, Perry brought
his smirky, bitchy, surf-boy attitude to the table, which worked great
as Dylan McKay, Linc Stark and even Ron Young, but really really really
didn't seem appropriate here. I never felt threatened by Chief Tony as
much as I was supposed to, and it just felt weird hearing the other
characters keep referring to him as some kind of hardened no-nonsense
boss, with the camera, the music, and the script clearly to supporting
that notion, too. For some reason, though, it wasn't the mood Luke
chose for his delivery. Upsetting, because the Matt Austin persona
showed that he does have it in him.
As for the rest of the characters, who cares, right? We're here to
recapture my Dylan feelings. Okay, okay, since we already got this far,
Marshall Allman, who I never heard of before, was a great teen
heartthrob main character, Hillary Duff's older sister was great. Hot
as a tomboy, too, but as soon as she donned the lipsticks, ouch. I
don't know if that was intentional and perhaps she looks great all
dolled up, as I never saw her in anything else, or not, but it
definitely fit the hickish thing they had going for her. The support
cast played their roles really well. Gomez Warren seems tip-of-my
tongue familiar and is definitely someone who should be seen more of in
the years to come, perhaps in a buddy movie. And wawaweewawa, what a
breakout role for Michelle Lobardo. I'm sure every actress wants to
play the epitome-of-sexuality character at least once in their career,
so hats off to her, and please excuse my cheesiness, hello nurse!
All in all, pleasant movie experience, hampered a lot by the acting
decision of my main attraction, but well worth the view for me, and if
you like skating movies, this one's for you..
