  • Critic Reviews
    4 star out of 5 -- "Barrymore grew up in the movies and clearly has learned from the best....She effortlessly brings the story to life on the screen and, in fact, shows a flair for action with the gripping Derby scenes."
    Box Office

    "What makes WHIP IT a blast is the action in the rink. What give WHIP IT heart is the pathos, pain and mettle-testing elements that accompany any serious athletic competition."
    Los Angeles Times

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t has guts, charm, and a black-and-blue sweetness....Ellen Page, still only 22, is the real thing."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "At moments, especially in the conflicted intimacy between Marcia Gay Harden and Daniel Stern as Bliss' parents, Barrymore shows real directing chops."
    Rolling Stone

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[V]ital and fun....Shauna Cross' smart script keeps things fresh and funny."
    Total Film

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Ellen Page gets the follow-up role to JUNO that confirms her position as the junior leading lady with the most potential."
    Empire

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t offers insight into a world rarely depicted in movies: women's sports....There's a lot of warmth here."
    Uncut

    "[T]he real novelty is the tone, which -- thanks to Shauna Cross' charming script and Barrymore's gung-ho, effervescent direction -- is infectious."
