Modern roller derby's cult classic Whip It is 10 years
old today. In honor of this auspicious occasion, I am joined by
skater and noted man-bun connoisseur, Curly Fry, on a rewatch of
Drew Barrymore's 2009 film. We talked about Whip It's
significance within derby and the teen movie genre, how well the
movie and its depiction of derby have aged, and imagined what a
2019 reboot might include.
