Trivia

Partially shot in Cottonwood, Arizona in the Old Town Theater, at the time the longest running single screen theater in the United States (opened 1923).

Milo: California! Let's move to California!
Biscut: I got a job. I got responsibilities.

I Agree With Pepper Anne - Dudes was EXCELLENT
16 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dudes is a fun albeit weirdly different movie. I didn't love it as much as Pepper Anne, but yeah - it's fun. From the opening with The Vandals to Lee Ving popping up as Cryer's nemesis, it never takes itself too seriously, even when it's taking itself too seriously. The plot is basically summed up in the Vandals tune "Urban Struggle" and P.A. above. Cryer and co. become disillusioned with the NY scene and head out west to see what lies out there. Run into Ving and his boys and things take a turn for the worse and then it's Cryer in Eastwood mode. Avenging angel.Anyway - take our words for it - Dudes is a semi-cult classic that's good for watching once every couple of years.
