Near the beginning of the drag race with Julie's hair on fire, in a wide shot from the front of the cars, Julie's friend can be seen with her sweater on Julie's head before she's seen taking off that sweater to put out the fire a few moments later. See more »


Sarge: Hey, now you pay attention to somethin' here. These kids ain't the same anymore, and you know what's behind it all? Rock 'n' roll. That music is turnin' the kids into a bunch of sex hungry, beer drinkin', road racin' werewolves.

Wild, cool and funk-ay!
17 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

Wild, cool and funky, "Road Racers" is a gem of a movie. The quintessential "wild-assing" picture, and I disagree with Maltin that there was too much violence. Only five minutes right at the end? The rest of the violence was mainly verbal, and I felt for all the characters, including "Teddy Leather. The real crook in the movie was his father, the police chief, and in the end there were really no victims. Life Happens, and in the end Dude gets it together and does NOT end up like his father. Hidden plot complexities make this film watchable well over one time.

Nicely done! Rent it on video some night if you like wild, crazy, unpredictable and humorous. This movie is "Grease" for grownups. If you're a smoker, make sure you can smoke wherever you see the movie, everyone is smoking constantly throughout the picture.

Hurt only by its low budget... some of the cuts in the car chase scenes really bite. But you could tell David Arquette really had some fun with this role. 8/10.
