Trivia

Rory Cochrane, who played Slater in the movie, actually wore a long-hair wig in the film. He said that he'd never had long hair before and that, despite the "cosmopolitan" atmosphere of Austin, Texas, he still got a lot of strange looks from people outside the set. See more »

Goofs

When O'Bannion jumps out of the car to chase Mitch and Carl, you will hear the sounds of both cars speeding away, but if you actually watch behind O'Bannion, you will see that Benny's truck is still there, even after both tire squeal sounds can be heard, even after the rumbling sounds of the truck starts.

Where's the point?
6 March 2002 | by efurrerSee all my reviews

This movie had absolutely no point. No plot, no climax.. A buncha kids get out of school and go to a party and do a lot of drinking and drugs. Flat liner from beginning to end. Good depiction of the 70's.
