andrew grayson brown loved this movie and gave it two thumbs up, and you will feel the same way
25 January 2005 | by welovegokatgoSee all my reviews

i don't know how this one slipped through the cracks, but it is one of best movies of the nineties and possibly of all time. believe me. it is so hot, and spicy, and it has lots of leather and chrome, or something.

it has so many insane scenes that have nothing to do with the rest of the movie, and thrives on intense nostalgia for the culture and fashion that only existed in the early 1990's.

it's such a treat to see such stars as j. eddie peck, adolfo quinones aka shaboom, and jennifer lopez before they became such hot hot stars. Hot.

see this movie. it's like stand and deliver, except with much more dancing and obsession with the year 1990. and it has protractors.

two thumbs up
