Looking like Saturday Night Fever on wheels, this 1970s disco era story follows a group of African-American youth (lead by Bow Wow) that challenge a gang of over-confident white kids (headed up by Wesley Jonathan) to a roller skating match.
Why Is Roll Bounce Rated PG-13?
Roll Bounce is rated PG-13 for language and some crude humor.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Roll Bounce...
These teen characters use some mild profanities, and one offers “the finger” in a moment of anger. However, such incidents are few and the young characters are usually considerate, even though they frequently tease each other. In a fit of rage, Xavier begins smashing his father’s already broken-down car, yet this scene offers a great moment of consolation between them. More content extends from adult characters, including women who dress provocatively and characters that remark about male and female anatomy. On a positive note, Curtis is committed to not drinking alcohol, and shows great compassion, patience, and physical restraint with his son.
