Terror on the freeway baby...yeah!!!
14 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie just seems to have a special place in my heart, it reminds me of freshman year in high school, VHS tapes and summer vacation (damn I miss that sh!t). Where else can u get Henry Rollins as a douchebag cop who thinks he's Dirty Harry, his partner the revolting blob, Anthony Kiedis and Flea in their hillbilly white trash Monster truck, Cary Elwes as Steve Horsegroovy the super cheesy anchorman, Tigers blood in a clown suit, Angela from "Who's the Boss", Ron f-ing Jeremy, and the mega babe known as Kristy Swanson...no where else that's where! The Chase is not an action movie, sure there's action in it but its a comedy and its meant to be satirical (especially involving the media and the way they like to blow EVERYTHING out of proportion) and it's not high brow comedy, but its effective. If u haven't seen this flick check it out, I mean i enjoy artsy movies and indies as much as the next guy but sometimes a good dumb comedy is just what the doctor ordered. So just sit back, kick your feet up and enjoy the ride.
