Trivia

"Tubby's Drive In" was actually an A&W Root beer that was closed down. It was located (then) way out on Van Nuys Blvd. Nothing worked, no bathrooms, plumbing, grills etc. Many people sought to buy the place after the film, and convert it back into a working drive-in for a gathering place for hot rods, but it never happened.

A FUNNY AND GREAT GUILTY PLEASURE!!!
7 July 2004 | by sawyertomSee all my reviews

Say what you will about this movie, but in the end it is funny. Is it Shakespeare and the bard? Hell, no. Just take it for what it is, a funny, guilty pleasure that is great. I like this movie. I like it a lot. Is it an American Graffiti wannabe? Yep. But, with the group of friends I grew up with we kind of experienced a few of the things in this movie so we could relate to it. The movie is funny,sophomoric a little raunchy and dirty in spots, but so what? The story isn't too bad and as a movie it is entertaining. we get to see several young actors and comedians just starting out. This is the perfect movie to be shown the weekend of the Woodward Dream Cruise in Michigan. It is basically the perfect guys movie, because it has cars, topless and nude women, drag races, beer, topless and nude women, great music, practical jokes, insults, topless and nude women, simulated sex and innuendo,more women, farting,and of course topless and nude women. This movie makes no pretenses on what it is. Just sit back and enjoy it like any other guilty pleasure. It's a fun movie!
