Quick movie review: "Whip It" 

Formula fun. Drew Barrymore makes her directorial debut (and co-stars) in an enjoyable roller derby action-comedy. Ellen Page (Juno) stars as Bliss Cavendar, a young small-town Texas woman who makes a name for herself in the wild world of roller derby in nearby Austin, Texas. Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis and Marcia Gay Harden also appear. The film as a whole is familiar, but upbeat and easy to enjoy. The action scenes are gripping. 111 minutes. Co-sponsored by the Naptown Roller Girls, Whip It is playing at Earth House on Friday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. $5 for non-members.
