Quotes

Bullwinkle: [at Gary Lee's office building, he and Bullwinkle are interviewing Griffin as a potential Rollerboy] I have one more question, Griffin: when and why did you change your mind about us, all of a sudden?
[Griffin levels an empty assault rifle at him]
Griffin: ...I *never* changed my mind about *you*.
[he passes the rifle to Bullwinkle]
Gary Lee: Same old Griffin, huh? Good to have you with us...! You'll have to excuse Bullwinkle; he's terribly loyal, just not very sophisticated.

This movie is terribly awesome
27 August 2006 | by (Austin Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie is awful in a really great way. If you don't like bad movies you shouldn't be looking at the work of Corey Haim. But that doesn't mean that bad movies aren't enjoyable. And this one has everything.

By everything I mean post-apocalyptic, drug dealing, fascist skating around in formation wearing trench coats.

I know what you are thinking "Wait, wait, I have seen this a million times", but you haven't seen an apple eaten as viciously as you will in this film.

I wept for that apple, it was violated.

Plus you get Corey Haim and Patrica Arquette.

I say gather a group of like minded friends, some adult beverages, and enjoy a truly enjoyable bad movie.
