What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith It's girl-power on wheels, Texas style
Betsy Sharkey Whipping up some girly fun
Pete Hammond In this realistic but highly entertaining story that travels to two extremes of the female experience, Barrymore has made a highly promising debut behind the camera and created a first-rate, funny, heart-filled and totally winning entertainment that not only rolls, it rocks.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Whip It is an unreasonably entertaining movie, causing you perhaps to revise your notions about women's Roller Derby, assuming you have any.
Chandler Levack Whip It's good.
C. Fuchs In the end, Whip It comes off as a cute and entertaining diversion that's nothing spectacular, yet proves to be a solid, endearing and occasionally touching directorial debut.
Tomatometer While made from overly familiar ingredients, Drew Barrymore's directorial debut has enough charm, energy, and good-natured humor to transcend its many cliches.
