When Brian is sneaking into the WMS warehouse you can clearly see a number of times his skateboard he had throughout the first half of the movie. He then sacrifices the board to blow up the propane tank.
A few scenes later when he is riding in the street with his backpack he has the same skateboard, then breaks the trucks on the police lights. Only then does he replace it for the new black board. See more »
Great 80s film, nothing amazing, but certainly competent in what it does, and not many films like it
One of the first films of its kind that I had seen and is still really entertaining, after I hunted it down on DVD and watched for the first time last night for years. I like the portrayal of the skater guys. It frames their attitude nicely.
Slater's 'I miss you' speech was pretty cringing for me, but apart from that, the film carries itself really well without trying to take itself too seriously, and it comes off better for it.
The Corvette guy was a terrible addition in many ways, but despite being so bad, it was hilarious. One of those scenes where you'd say 'who would do that???' and then... 'who would carry on doing that after this?'... you'll see what I mean...
