Trivia

Filmed in Cottonwood,AZ which is interestingly enough, three miles away from Clarkdale, AZ where Midnight Run was filmed. The scene where Walsh and the Duke steal a Blazer upon exiting the train, is literally, three miles away from where Dudes was filmed. On the same, stretch of road no less. Also, both films were released one year apart from each other. See more »

one of my favorites
5 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw dudes when I was seventeen,I rented the movie and returned it two years later.Well I have always wished I added it to my collection.As far as plot is concerned, the film is a little weak,but there are some more memorable lines including Dare-Delvises line regarding angry beef.The personal development of Grant and Biscuit make the film worth it.If you are looking for a serious film to learn something from this isn't it but if you are looking for some escapist comedy with some serious moments then you have come to the right place.

Dudes became one of my favorites quickly and has never really let me go. The weaker moments include a seemingly out of sync dream sequence,and the bar scene when Grant finally meets Missoula. So check it out with an open mind and enjoy Dudes for what it is worth.
