Best Eighties movie. <------Period
18 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

If you were a skater punk in the 80's and loved everything Neon, OR you like skating Fat Decks in pools, this movie is for you. If you are an Ebert or a Fat Tony Hawk video game nerd chances are it's not your cup of tea, it's that simple. I was waiting along time for this DVD to be released and when I finally got it, I was so pleased. Watching this disc with the commentary on gets it a nomination of sorts for a comedy commentary award with Robert Rusler, Josh Richmond, Alan Sacks & Steve Olson tearing it up in a drunken blaze of glory. Lace up the Vision high tops, slap on the pink grip tape and shred.

P.S. The Daggers will own your soul!!!
