Quotes

Gary Lee: [at a Rollerboy office-building, he explains to Griffin why the Rollerboys don't use their own designer-drugs] I am very strict on this: We have to remain pure. Let the others indulge their weaknesses.
Griffin: Why sell it, then?
Gary Lee: Because we have to, for now; It's just a phase. Besides, some people just aren't worth saving... Do you remember when we were kids? Blood Brothers? Penknife and a couple drops of blood?
Griffin: Yeah... We're lucky we didn't get tetanus, huh?
Gary Lee: It's more serious now. Once in, never out. ...

Where can i get a copy of this movie
20 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw the roller boys when it first came out on video in the UK and loved it to death. Not only did it have my teen idol in but the plot was different to what was out at the time. I would love to see the roller boys again so as to relive my younger days but along with my sister we have been trying to find this film for years. We both thought that we were mad as nobody seemed to remember the film let a lone have it. Lucky last week we realized we weren't mad as in the same day we found two people who had heard of it unfortunately we were still unable to find it.So please please if you can spare a copy or know where i can get one please let me know.
