A wonderful teen flick
15 August 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Having just recently re-viewed the film, I am reminded of what teen-sex flicks used to be. All the sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll that are missing from todays films -- on rollerblades! What a wonderful film. A completely predictable plot never felt so good. The style is one that hollywood has unfortunately forgotten.
