Will Your Town ‘Whip It’ Good?


If you’re anything like me, you’ve often had to ask yourself the ultimate question: Would you rather have (1) a free t-shirt, (B) girls on skates, or (3) grossly over-buttered popcorn? This Saturday, you don’t have to decide. Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut, Whip It, is rolling into over 500 theaters nationwide for sneak previews on September 26th. At each location featuring the movie between 7PM and midnight, there will also be free t-shirts.

And if that’s not enough to get you off your couch and into a theater seat, ask yourself this question: What’s better than seeing what we can only hope will be a funny, possibly feminist movie a week before it comes out? Uh, seeing a funny, possibly feminist movie that features what can only be called the glorious cinematic return of City Slicker Daniel Stern. Yeah, we know. You don’t have to thank us. Also starring in Whip It are Ellen Page (Juno), Marcia Gay Harden, SNL’s Kristen Wiig, Jimmy Fallon, and director Barrymore.
