Storyline

Cool van-driving stud Steve gets the hots for Anita, who's the new girl in town. However, this doesn't go over well with Steve's bitchy and jealous girlfriend Donna, who sets Steve up by telling the cops that he's a cocaine dealer. Donna covers her tracks by claiming that Anita ratted Steve out to the cops. This in turn incurs the wrath of Steve's fellow van-driving buddies. Written by Woodyanders

That's TEENsploitation!
19 February 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Endless love, pot and heavy petting amidst a battle of the sexes between two rival surfie van gangs. Director Buckajew has filmed his share of teen flesh helming 60s backwoods nudies (The Pigkeeper's Daughter, Country Cuzzins) for Harry Novak's Box Office International (who also had Mag Wheels producer Peter Perry, aka 'AP Sootsberry', on the payroll), but takes time out to include other teensploitation essentials - frisbees, pinball, lame-o skateboarding, and those whacking paddles they used in Dazed And Confused - all from that awkward cultural limbo between Alice Cooper and John Travolta. Good to see jocks are the heroes and the nerds are zeroes, and that Women's Liberation had progressed to lines like `I'm Rachel. Fly me.' John Laughlin (here billed as "McLaughlin"), cast years later as Kathleen Turner's sex toy in Crimes Of Passion, heads a gormless no-name roster.
