Storyline

Matt Stevens is the big man at high school. He sweats the students for protection money, acquires copies of tests for a fee, and has rigged the votes so he can beat Kelly in the election for student president. Aside from his anointed acolytes, Matt is almost universally despised. His parents are obscenely rich and spend their time travelling in Europe rather than giving him the parental guidance he needs. Things begin to get ugly when some of the teens resist his power and show Matt up at the drag race. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Cool Cars, good music
6 September 2004 | by headhunter46See all my reviews

I bought a DVD from Best Buy that had several movies on one disc. There was a large rack in the middle of the aisle and all the movies were marked down to $5.99! There were two discs in the box with a total of four movies. This movie was one of those in the set. I did not recognize any of the people listed on the jacket but watched it anyway. I had a great time seeing all the old cars looking like new and the music took me back to the 50's. I turned 13 in 1959 and this was a great flashback. The main character was a spoiled, self serving, rich punk. A good example of how money can corrupt an otherwise decent person. I kept hoping he would get his just rewards. I always like to see those type take a fall. I won't tell you how it turned out, you'll have to watch it for yourself. It will give you a fairly decent look at how clothes, music, and cars were back then. I agree some of the acting was only a little better than my senior class play, but I still enjoyed it. I rate it 7* out of 10.
