Did You Know?

Goofs

Set in the US but on Vic and Watts return from the police station, on the speed limit sign, it's clearly written MAXIMUM 70. It's in Km/h not in MPH. That would be faster then the 60 MPH speed limit on US highways. Not bad for a small country road. See more »

I don't know what's sadder...
1 October 2006 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't know what's sadder, the fact that this movie exists, or the fact that people are complaining that its not realistic.

Racing movies are all the same, it doesn't matter what happens in the first 80 minutes, because the hero will just pull ahead at the last minute anyways. And the way they glamourized this sport was hilarious. I mean, this is the same crap people are racing at theme parks and carnivals, and they expect us to believe that it would draw crowds like that? Hey I know, let's make a movie about how some underdog unicyclist has to reconnect with his father and then perceiver to win the Unicycle Cup. At the last second he'll put it all on the line, pull ahead, and win it all.
