Quotes

Bo Richards: What a screwy job.
Roy Alston: Well, our jobs are better.
Bo Richards: What, the factory?
Roy Alston: No, our jobs as fashion designers.
Bo Richards: Hey, quit complaining. It's a good job. Manufacturing. It's American!
Roy Alston: You sound like my dad. He's been going in and out of those shit box factories for thirty years. Always a week away from getting out. Alright, we start Monday but we don't get out in two months. Then it's six months. Then you wake up and it's thirty fucking years later.

One of the best films ever made! Excellent performances!!!!
30 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie is definitely Charlie Sheen's best work! Maxwell Caulfield is another great underrated actor! Penelope Spheeris Directed this dark, disturbing film about two high school outcasts (Sheen & Caulfield) who take a road trip to L.A. and decide to snap and start killing people. It shows the minds of some disturbed teens who are tired of being put down by others.

Seeing this movie again reminded me of the tragedy that happened at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado where two outcast students went on a bloody rampage and killed 15 people including themselves at their school.Maxwell Caulfield portrays the very psychotic Roy who does most of the killing. I'd recommend this film to anyone!
