OK...when I was in Sweden earlier this year....I saw copies of Whip It DVDs at a truck stop/service area somewhere between Stockholm and Jonkopping....
Seems like the film had some impact in Sweden. Here is an article from The Local - Sweden (in English) that talks about Swedish roller derby and mentions how they were influenced by Whip It
Note that the article just mentions Drew Barrymore...and gets some of the facts about the film incorrect (no mention of Ellen). Looks liike I need to email them
I probably would not have mentioned this article with such a glaring error....however....seems like Ellen and Whip It has motivated a few in Sweden to go roller derby A "stort tack" to Ellen and Drew from Sweden
Ellen kicks some ass as Babe Ruthless
