It tries hard to be funny and cool but it's boring (it took me two days to finish it).

This movie looks like it was shot in a hurry, the most bland angles, lazy editing.

The movie is an entertaining over-the-top story about four friends who decide to make the summer more interesting by trying to live the dream of becoming pro skateboarders.

Competes with Gigli for worst movie .

No plot.

I watched this hoping that at least the skateboard scenes would be juicy, much like an action film with dull moments in between.

I agree that there are a few points in the movie where you want to just close your eyes, fall asleep, and hope that when you wake up there will be some serious board action on the screen.

Their adventures are enjoyable, and the show is slathered with multiple layers of humor and style.

I just really enjoyed it and found it to be a great surprise.

For one thing, this film was entertaining by the last act, so you'll be satisfied at the end.

It's just not funny and at some point, it becomes tiresome.

It was funny, and entertaining.

It is not the best that I have seen, but for a middle-of-the-road comedy about skateboarding teens (with one in particular chasing an ambition), this may be worth watching.

This movie gets an 8 out of ten for just being generally entertaining.

My god this has to have been the worst movie Ive ever seen next to Gigli.

I enjoyed all of the cameos and the skateboarding sequences were well done, even if they were cliche.

This was the worst movie that I have ever seen in my whole life.

Anyway, Adam Brody aside, the rest of the cast made the film enjoyable.

Unwatchable .

They're like the sprinkles on top of a bland sundae.

First of all, I found the dialogue and the situations too predictable at times.

It's a crying shame that this concept went to waste with such bland, unmemorable characters and their lobotomized humor.

It was at least entertaining....

The plot was very predictable with the ever present "lets accomplish something, we fail a few times, and then when all seems lost, we finally succeed.

There is some good skateboarding but even that gets repetitive.

Um, thought it was a fun, entertaining summer road trip movie.

Worst Movie EVER!!.

The shots were somewhat uninspiring, in the sense that they could be found in any MTV style movie.

This movie could've been about ping pong & I still would have enjoyed it for what it was.

"Grind" is a film that's so enjoyable, it's easy to watch it over and over and over again.

Yawn.

" Don't waste your time on this one.

The story is loose and going nowhere (I couldn't believe it, they actually allow it to make it to the film).

Was it worth watching?

This movie to me was very entertaining for one reason.

It's a watch-able, enjoyable movie.

This movie was very typical with a very basic story line but I still found it highly enjoyable and great fun to watch.

You'll waste most of your time with stupid, gross jokes.

I enjoyed it and it was absolutely hilarious.

Vince, was a little over the top but entertaining none the less.

it made me laugh and was a make you feel good movie and was really enjoyable to watch.

I was bored from beginning to the end.

I wish I would have walked out after the previews .

I'll put it this way; they are delightfully repetitive.

The story is about as exciting as careening down a flight of stairs and landing on a bed of nails.

Probably the worst movie I've seen in a long time.
