The rubber meets the road and the board meets the rail in Grind, the high-energy comedy about four pals from Chicago who put everyday life on hold and set out on a cross-country trip to become part of the world of professional skateboarding. Up-and-comers Mike Vogel, Vince Vieluf, Adam Brody and Joey Kern play the guys with their own idea about how to skate through life. And Jennifer Morrison is the skatewise girl who senses the guys are the real deal. With appearances by three X-Games Vert Champions and featuring outrageous comedy support by Randy Quaid, Bobcat Goldthwait and more, Grind is an awesome groove.

Critics Consensus: Mediocre skateboard stunts are padded by a half-baked plot and one-dimensional characters.

Pretty much a complete waste of time.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has strong language and sexual references and situations for a PG-13. The characters cheat and steal. Characters drink, sometimes to excess. There is a lot of gross humor involving bodily functions. One strong point is the presence of some classy and capable female characters.
