The first hour-fifteen of this snore-fest is only slightly less painful than having teeth pulled with a pair of pliers.

Plenty of rollerblading action to keep the adrenaline pumping, along with Mitchell's Zen-philosophical outlook on life, earning the ire of many who find him annoying.

An eye opening, light hearted action packed ride...

The plot is typical 90s fish out of water garbage and predictable to boot.

This is the worst movie I've ever seen.

It also ends up being enjoyable by many different age groups.

Watching a young Jack Black and Seth Green in a movie together is pretty entertaining and the humor is great!

anyways I enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone after a night out getting drunk as a movie to sober up to.

Very lightweight and very enjoyable.

Shane McDermott is a story of his own, with his intense eyes and killer smile he is totally invincible to all those Cincinatti bullies!!

It was a really intense race and the crashes looked pretty realistic.

The ending racing scene is exciting and thrilling.

This has to be one of the most pointless and, generally speaking, poorly acted movies ever made.

This movie is predictable from start to finish.

If you don't go into this movie with overly high expectations, but just go with the flow, this movie can be very enjoyable.

The action set piece, which makes up for the entire last third of the film, is really an exciting adrenaline rush.

A High School skater movie, but well done and engrossing.

This enjoyable yet predictable teen movie is about rollerbladers in Cincinnati that race down Devil's Backbone.

Mitchell has to find a way to adjust, but that's pretty hard to do when you're dating your adversary's sister in that old fashioned Romeo and Juliet cliche.

I didn't like the film, but then it was worth the watch.

Two other reasons to like this flick are the always delightful Edie McClurg and Stewart Copeland's rhythmically exciting music.

While Mitchell's personality is on par with a Disney prince he's still an enjoyable character for the most part.

Bad acting, dull, boring, and monotonous.

With all that aside, it is a rather enjoyable movie.

Forget the fact that this movie is your typical 1990's pre-teen romantic comedy, forget the fact that the movie is dull and really has no plot.

Devil's Backbone is essentially a race throughout the city of Cincinnati, quite thrilling in that the danger is always present as the rollerblading teams have to dodge cars and winding curvy roads.

Very Predictable .

But the movie was really entertaining, to say the least, and Seth Green was awesome.

A thoroughly enjoyable film.

This movie is so campy, but is so damn entertaining.

Very Enjoyable .

I highly recommend it!

its still entertaining!!!

But I thought the movie was way too predictable and a little harsh in certain scenes such as the dating scene, and the "mooner" scene, so when I recently saw it again on cable with my niece I thought about how poor of a movie this was when it first came out and how poor it still is now.

Adults will be bored to tears.

I found it very entertaining and engrossing.

Instead this surfing/roller-blade romp is an entertaining, fun and realistic story of teenagers coping with peer pressure–something we can all relate to.

It's a great comedy and entertaining, teens will enjoy it especially the skating.
