Forgotten Action Cinema: Dudes

“Decline of the Western Civilization” director Penelope Spheeris, while talented, has certainly made some very strange choices during the early stages of her career. And while the filmmaker’s pseudo-cool 1987 revenge saga “Dudes” isn’t nearly as hokey as, say, “Hollywood Vice Squad”, it does, at times, reek of slightly moldly cheese. Jon Cryer and Daniel Roebuck star as a pair of New York City punks who helplessly watch their friend die at the hands of a murderous gang of racist hillbillies during their cross-country trip to sunny California. The story — which is essentially a punk rock retelling of “Easy Rider” — isn’t overly complicated or complex, nor does it strive to be.
