Drive-In needs to be OUT (on disc!)
27 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I think I first saw this made-for-TV movie by accident. Luckily I had a VCR and recorded it so I could watch something else on another channel. I can't even remember now what the other title was but glad now I recorded Drive-In as it is one of my all-time favorites for re-watching ever so often. As one old enough to remember drive-in theaters, this movie brought back many, many memories. I loved the weird characters and the even weirder flick supposedly playing on the screen that night. The disaster spoof could have been a great vehicle for Leslie Nielsen or Lloyd Bridges! This is just another one that definitely needs to be on DVD, though I doubt it ever will. In the meantime, I'll enjoy it the best I can on VHS even though I have to flip through countless commercial messages and station breaks.
