During the skate scene, the beginning of the race shows them coming down Springdale Road - which is in Ohio, about 10 miles from Cincinnati. A few scenes later during the same race, the skaters are coming down Devou Park hill - which is in Northern Kentucky. The entire race scene bounces back and forth between Cincinnati, suburbs and northern Kentucky. See more »

Wasn't expecting legitimacy
26 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was watching this flick in a hotel room on HBO early in the morning and thought that it was some sort of parody at early 90s B comedies. Then I thought "there is no way that this is actually an early 90s comedy. They are beating me over the head with plaid and rollerblades and other 90s clichés." The I realized Seth Green and Jack Black were in it and I realized that it must in fact be a parody. WRONG! 1993 baby. This movie is so campy, but is so damn entertaining. It's like one of those songs that no one wants to admit they love, yet everyone loves it. Like "I Saw the Sign" or something. Check out this flick at the very least to see Green and Black early in their careers.
