When Razzle dumps the slushie into the pickled egg jar, blue syrup goes all down the outside of the jar and puddles onto the counter. In the next shot, the slushie is neatly contained (and well mixed) inside the jar with no mess. See more »
I love this film. What can I say? Yes, the acting is bad, but this would be because for the most part, these kids are actual street kids and not "actors". So, get past the low budget and the bad acting for a second and look at the story. Kids (punks) who live in an abandoned house and are rejected by society. How much more realistic can you get? This movie is a cult classic, and for those into punk, a must-see! Why? Because it has performances by D.I., The Vandals and others. Also, you can catch Flea in what's probably his first film, credited as something like Mike B. The Flea. Check it out!!
