Cute but contrived coming-of age comedy set in Chicago during the roller-disco craze of the 1970s about a roller-skating-obsessed teen (Bow Wow) who, together with his buddies, enters a skating contest against their crosstown rivals, while dealing with unresolved emotions over the recent loss of his mother and strained relationship with his dad (Chi McBride), who is struggling to raise his children alone. Directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the movie has heart, but its sentimental themes of parental loss and family love are saddled with a formulaic, albeit feel-good, narrative and occasional -- and most unnecessary -- crassness. Some sexual humor, as well as scattered crude language and gestures, making it most suitable for older adolescents and up. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
