Oh, Ellen Page! You are the Molly Ringwald to a whole generation of cerebral girls with questionable tastes in movies. It's neat that Page is the Anti-Tisdale but this new trailer for Whip It does not look promising.
A geek's journey from alienation to empowerment, self-congratulating dialogue, the indie-pop soundtrack, the awful parents who don't "get it" all makes look like typical teen trope. Hmm. What could make it stand out? Maybe Kristen Wiig could show up and mumble her way through another cameo?!
