I can’t help it… I LOVED Whip It!
I’m a huuuuge sucker for frothy coming-of-age teen fillers, but this one was just so sweet and came from a good place.
I was genuinely surprised that Drew Barrymore directed so well. She actually managed to capture a lot really good shots, but I don’t doubt that (at least in part) a lot of that owes to the fact that she somehow wrangled Robert Yeoman (The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, Darjeeling, read: Wes Anderson) as the cinematographer.
And hello Maeby Fünke!
Alia Shawkat grew up to be such a babe, I can’t handle it. She’s really one of the best parts of this movie.
