Babe Ruthless

Sunday, March 07, 2010

Be sure to enter my giveaway!I finally got a chance to see Whip It on my Netflix queue, and I was pleasantly surprised. Maybe my influence was a bit biased since I adore Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore, but nonetheless I thought it was a good movie.

Ellen Page, who plays Bliss (aka Babe Ruthless), joins an all-girl roller derby team and becomes this amazingly cool, tough chick. All while trying to escape the beauty pageant smothering from her mother.
This movie made me want to get back into the courts (I played tennis seriously for about 3 years in high school) and smack some tennis balls viciously & release my inner female spunk. Roar!

I thought it was such a girl power film and these gals can sure kick some butt while still being just girls! I loved Juliette Lewis' Iron Maven and Kristen Wiig's Maggie Mayhem.
