Trailer of the Week – Whip It

If a problem comes along, Ellen Page — and the other roller derby gals in Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut — will Whip It! (It’s not just a Devo song anymore.) Barrymore plays one of the hilariously-named babes (her moniker is “Smashley Simpson”) who teach Page’s budding rebel about the wild world of full-contact roller derby. The cast is a who’s who of funny ladies, with everyone from Arrested Development‘s Alia Shawkat to Saturday Night Live‘s Kristen Wiig strapping on skates and shoulder pads. The trailer strikes the perfect balance between deadpan comedy (Daniel Stern is particularly amusing as Page’s understanding pop) and rah-rah girl power (with a little elbow smashing thrown in for the male crowd). And it’s nice to see Juliette Lewis in a watchable movie for a change.
