Lots of teen smoking, drinking in so-so coming-of-age drama.

Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Like so many other films set in the Reagan era, Anthony Burns' directorial debut fails to acknowledge the lingering and pervasive angst that shaped anyone growing up in the late Cold War.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, May 20, 2011
Fresh: A film with some engaging performances and a swell soundtrack whose biggest problem is that it wants to be "Dazed and Confused" when it grows up.
- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, Thursday, June 16, 2011
Rotten: Though noticeably lacking in originality, Anthony Burns' low-key directorial debut skates by on the charms of its hazy wistfulness and a likable cast.
- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Friday, May 13, 2011
The backdrop of Skateland might be its best atribute. Its a young adult story of a period in the transition into adulthood. Imagine "Dazed and Confused" bu turning the dial from comedy to a drama. Not the greatest movie but much better than the critics think.

Skateland started off flat & just stayed there from beginning to end.At times it was downright boring & I can't figure out why I watched the whole thing when there was an off button on the remote.Maybe I was thinking something exciting would happen & the movie would get better after a certain point but it never does.Skateland is a movie that's not worth watching unless you can watch it for free
