"Daar is hoop vir komedie in SA. *****" - Beeld

"Footskating 101 reminds us that there is much to laugh at in the surreal world of Jo'burg's mining towns and downmarket shopping malls" - Barry Ronge, Sunday Times Magazine

"The film is hilarious, has a great SA soundtrack and will keep you in stitches. ****" - Pretoria News Tonight

"Asanine, slapstick humour through with a familiarity that will make you graduate from a reluctant grin to an all-out laugh." - Witness
