Grant: Yeah? Like what?
Biscut: Well, if we put our heads together, maybe we could figure something out.
Grant: My head just got stepped on. I can't think of nothing.
Milo: California! Let's move to California!
Biscut: I got a job. I got responsibilities.
Milo: Biscut, you're washing dishes in a shithole, brother. Personally, I think you could risk the career change.

Hard to believe Penelope Spheeris had something to do with this.
13 April 2004 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

I understand director Penelope Spheeris' loyalty to the punk culture as she was the director of the Decline of the Western Civilization documentaries as well as one of my favorites, Suburbia. But for crying out loud, this is just a slap in the face.

Dudes is about three young punks (Cryer, Roebuck, and Flea) on a road trip from New York to ye old West Coast. Except, after a little mishap, one of their punker friends is violently murdered. So Captain Dumbass (Cyer) "Grant" and his fat pal, Mr. Oblivious (Roebuck) "Buscuit," have some kind of stupid epiphany out in the desert and dress up like cowboy and Indian to avenge their friend's death caused by a mock Hells Angels.

There's not even much here about good old fashion good times and die hard freedom punk ethics at work in this story. Save your money, your time, and your brain. Dudes is just one thankless big pile of garbage.
