In the opening race scene, Malone is seen shifting gears of a floor-mounted manual shifter in his 1968 Chevy Chevelle, but the close-ups of his feet clearly show the wider brake pedal of a car with an automatic transmission. Also, the instrument cluster of the Chevelle depicted is not from a 1968 model (its a shot of a 1970 model with the rally gauge package). See more »

This film has been receiving a lot of play lately during the day on either HBO or Cinemax. The reason is that they are assuming people would be interested in comparing it to the Leonardo DiCaprio/Tom Hanks caper of the same name. The only reason to see it is for the attractive Matt Lattanzi. Yum! Although I must say Matt was more than a little long in the tooth to be playing a high schooler. If he were a woman, they'd have had him playing the MOTHER of a high schooler! (Is is just me, or is his daughter starting to look like Shelley Duvall?) Oh yeah, the plot--who cares? Typical teen highjinx played by adults.
