Goofs

When Dude lowers his head and uses his hair to make a grease slick at the skate park, his hair actually wipes up part the grease slick that it's supposed to be leaving behind (this is because the scene was actually shot with David Arquette running his head over an already-present grease slick).

boy meets girl
5 May 2000 | by Soul ManSee all my reviews

Roadracers is one of those brilliant films that hardly anybody knows about. It was made for TV, but don't let that scare you away. Rodriguez once again proves what a genius he really is. The music, the everything... there is no redundancy in this film, every but of dialogue is carefully plotted out. Scenes like the grease on the rollerskating rink should have gone down in histpory with classics like "frankly my dear, i dont give a damn" or the Graduate's leg-angle. Notice the names: Dude and Donna (= boy and girl). The film was most definately inspired by Copela's Ruble Fish. Please, if you haven't yet, see this masterpiece, it's definately worth your while.
