Rod Kimble is a naïf, a slacker living in a small US town with his mom, his younger brother, and his stepfather whose respect he craves. He also misses his dead dad, whom he thinks was Evel Knievel's back-up. Rod, a man-child, believes that he is a stunt man. When his stepfather needs an operation, with help from his brother and his slacker pals, Rod hatches a plan to set a school-bus-jumping record on his moped. First, his crew and he have to raise money to rent the buses and build the ramp. Trouble is, Rod's inept at his chosen career. Looming failure is complicated by the return of Denise, Rod's next-door neighbor and secret heartthrob, who is home from college. Is public humiliation at hand? Written by

, because he had some songs in Rad
(1986). They used the song "You're the Voice" by Farnham in the riot scene. Rad (1986) was a movie about a young man's journey to win a BMX race called Helltrack. See more

I'm going in for a Vitamin Water, should I make that dos?
No, I'm good, thanks.
Well, maybe I'll pick up a box of dong bags so we can knock boots later.
