In the film the character Brett says to the bible salesman "eat my shorts" under her breath. Yeardley Smith's Lisa Simpson on The Simpsons (1989), whose brother Bart says that same tag line. See more »
When the coach starts to fall over, a third soda can hits him in the face but there's no wound or blood. When the boy crawls over to him, we see a perfect hole and blood everywhere. See more »
Get sick of movies with intricate plots, outstanding acting, and multiple Academy Award nominations? Then go grab Maximum Overdrive! 90 minutes of mindless truck attacks, rocket launchers and A STEAM ROLLER RUNNING OVER A LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYER!!! Now, most readers are probably thinking that this is a pretty sick review, but keep in mind that this is A MOVIE. Not real life. Even with all of this in mind, I think it is fair to say that Stephen King did a fair job with the directing. It's by no means fantastic, but it is far better done than most Cult Classic, B-flicks. Happy watching!
