Storyline

Three high school virgins, suspended from school on a bogus graffiti charge, flee to the inner city in an attempt to live out the plot of The Catcher in the Rye - a book they neither have read nor understand. BINDLESTIFFS documents their struggles along the way as they surrender their virginities to vagrants, prostitutes, and crack fiends. Hot on their tail is Charlie, the deranged school security guard. Under the impression that the boys are planning a school shooting, he takes the law into his own hands to stop them and save America. Written by Millard Pearlman

Trivia

The rap song rapped along to by Luke in a car scene was actually written and performed by Loftin, but was reportedly very racist and vulgar, including a lyric about Whitney Houston (who had died around the time the movie was released) buying marijuana. The filmmakers stated that the song would never be released due to its content. See more »

crude yet cute: a coming of age story for our modern age
31 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Bindlestiffs is one of my favorite movies. I found out about it through Kevin Smith, as many did, and, from the very first scene, was enraptured. It was probably one of the funniest and most original movies I had ever seen. During the first 20 minutes the film, I out a mass email to all my friends instructing them to watch this movie. A little farther into the movie, I sent another email saying never mind. By the end of the movie, I had sent a third and final email saying it was the best movie I'd ever seen, but to watch at one's own risk. This film is not one for those who are into the squeaky clean studio pictures of old. It is brilliant, innovative, hilarious, however can be seen as disgusting at times by people who aren't used to that sort of thing. All in all, Bindlestiffs is a film I have felt the need to watch again and again, because I just can't seem to get enough of it's wit and zany charm. I hope no one will be dissuaded by the plethora of bad reviews by boring people who just don't get it, because this film is a treasure.
