So yesterday, my friends over at Lights, Camera, Barstool (they don’t know we are friends, but we are) posed this question to the twittersphere:
Well folks, there is only one answer to this question. That answer is Brink.
Brink is by far the best Disney Channel Original Movie and I will hear virtually no other opinions.
Andy “Brink” Brinker was the definition of cool back in the late 90s. He had all the skills to absolutely shred it on the blades, had the perfect 90s hair that put Shawn Hunter to shame, and most importantly was doing this all for his family.
People forget Andy Brinker was a soul skater at heart but he had to do what was best for his family. The whole reason he joined Team X-Bladz was because his family was in financial trouble. His old man was put on disability for the last 6 months. He knew this was his way to get sponsored and help out his family even if it meant going against everything he stood for.
He also for some reason thought that this “disguise” was actually going to work…
It was hard for Brink to go against the soul skaters but in the end he knew what was right. Good prevailed evil and Team Pup N’ Suds rode off into the sunset victorious.
This movie also had the best villain in any Disney Channel Original Movie.
I mean if just looking at his smug face doesn’t make you angry then you truly didn’t grow up in the 90s. That is the face of pure evil.
It also had some all time lines, I mean take a look at some of these dynamite lines.
-Brink: When you woke up this morning, did you say to yourself ‘Today, I’m gonna talk.’ or ‘Today, I’m gonna skate!’?
-Katie Brinker: Skate better!
-Brink: We skate for fun. We’re soul skaters.
And the absolute all time classic diss…
-Katie Brinker: What’s in the bag?
Katie Brinker: You have more stuff now then you did before. What’s in the bag?
Katie Brinker: Nunya?
Brink: Nunya business.
There ya have it folks, the greatest Disney Channel Orginal Movie of all time. This is one of the few time that the popular opinion is the absolutely right opinion. Just remember, skate better.
P.S. The only other acceptable answer is Johnny Tsunami…HEYYY PONO!!!!!
