This movie brings back memories.
9 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is fun to watch even though parts of the story could of been better. When i watch this movie it brings back memories. I live in a very small boring town and back in the late 80's and 90's the only thing to do was to get on the radio and talk to my friends and make the truck drivers mad. I would always look forward to the weekends so i could get on my base station at home or get in my truck and drive around and talk ( not now gas is too $$$ ). We would do the dumbest things on the radio. Now days citizen band radio isn't as popular now that we have the internet and cell phones. I always thought it would be cool if they made an up to date version but i guess it wouldn't have much of an audience now.
