Quotes

Mark Cannon: The two of you have a common interest. I happen to know that Kirby likes cars. In fact, his project this semester is a garage door opener holder, and get this...it's for his car. Do I have to spell it out for you? He likes cars; you like to race cars.
Darrin Darlow: Well, that's great, Mark. That's our common ground? I race go-karts; he builds shitty little boxes to hold garage door openers. Well, guess what? He has an asshole and you are an asshole. That's your common ground. You go talk to him.

A light hearted comedy delivered by a big hearted cast!
14 March 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This movie has it all. Thrills, spills, chills and even grills. Yes, grills. The ghetto BBQ scene is one that will go down in film making history as one of the most memorable moments in breaking the color barrier. James Brooks made his directorial presence felt with an all-to-real look at the seedy underbelly of todays youth while still managing to keep the spirit of this film fresh, cutting edge and strictly ghetto. Mark Swanson's jump from the small screen to the big picture proved to be just as entertaining as his earlier role in the short lived summer camp series Salute your Shorts. As he did two years earlier in the fourth installment of the 3 Ninjas quadology, Swanson once again proves why he's the hottest young actor in Hollywood. Jim Brooks simply shows why he's the hottest man on earth. There's nothing funny about the racial tension our kids face in this world today, but when seen through the camera lens that James Brooks used, it doesn't seem quite so bad.
