Capital Cheese
25 February 2004 | by vertigo_14See all my reviews

It's a kid's movie I know. So if it's corny and junk like that, I shouldn't get all fussy about it 'cause it's just meant to entertain some kids, right? I think that even for little kids, this movie is far too cheesy.

The Skateboard Kid is this little kid who sends away for a skateboard. It turns out to be a magic skateboard, one that let's him fly. He's able to show up the neighborhood gang of skating big shots--kids who are just a little older than him. The skateboard let's him do things that he couldn't do by himself. So, even though he is a novice, he is able to accomplish things that only the pro's could do. This leads to an opportunity to compete. And, if you know corny kids movie, you know that even though some magic or some kind of special mentor helped him to get to one point, it would be up to him to get the rest of the way. Except, that might be plausible if the kid was actually doing tricks that would seem fitting for his expertise, even if it was a little m more than you would assume could be done.

Here, in this balogna movie, this kid starts out on some homemade stick and attempt to jump a quarter pipe launch ramp. Some people can't even balance themselves on a regular board, nevermind a piece of chopped up lumber with no kicktails. Then, when he gets the magic board, Stardust, it allows him to do pro-material, tearing up half-pipes and everything. And, at the end, when the Stardust board doesn't work anymore, and he's back to a regular board, he doesn't just have confidence to skate well in front of the older, more aggressive kids. No way, now he can skate just like a pro. Maybe the movie should've been entitled--how to skate like a pro without ever really trying.

It's hard to fish out that building-character premise that is so cliche of most kids movies due to such an implausible feat. I know it's supposed to be about a magic skateboard and all of that, but for crying out loud.

Aside from that point that annoyed me most about this movie, I guess the story and acting are no more corny than most other kids movies. The kids stink it up a little bit, especially the bully kid. Overall, I'd say that this movie is just cheese city.
