High School Musical's Corbin Bleu trades in his dancing shoes for a helmet in this family film. In Free Style, young Cale (Bleu) gives his all in his effort to be on the Grand National Motocross racing team, while his mother (Penelope Ann Miller), sister (The Game Plan's Madison Pettis), and girlfriend (Sandra Echeverria) cheer him on. ~ Kimber Myers, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Bleu remains one to watch, but only real fans will want to watch this."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"As predictable and cliché as Free Style is, it moves along briskly enough and Bleu is compelling enough that it doesn't wear out its welcome."
‑ Cary Darling, Dallas Morning News
"A film Barack Obama would approve of screening for Sasha and Malia -- there's even a jab at private health insurers."
‑ Amy Nicholson, Boxoffice Magazine
"Soft-peddled father issues, and race relations get coasted over like so much conveyor-belt product in director William Dear's oh-so-safe kids' romantic sports drama."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Free Style is about motocross and stars Corbin Bleu of the Disney Channel repertory company, two facts that might lead you to expect a certain kind of film."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"Bleu's cute-but-bland act flatlines in every scene of a movie with a script that is a perfect match for his abilities."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Teen motocross fan aims big in well-meaning but so-so drama."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"For High School Musical fans unwaveringly devoted to Corbin Bleu, Free Style provides ample opportunity to swoon over the former East High basketballer's big floppy hair and Disney Channel-grade emoting."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"You don't have to be a swooning teenage girl to be enamored of Free Style and its heartthrob actor Corbin Bleu."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"The movie revels in that kind of good-natured, sitcom-style corniness."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"You can always while away the hour and a half playing 'Count the Cliches.' One wishes Bleu all the best, but on the evidence of this picture his career might be a lot shorter than his hair."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
