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. ...

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.
