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).

Quotes

Nixer: [trying to convince Dude not to go to the rumble] I know you hate this town. I know you hate Teddy. I do, too. But I also know you love your music. So fight for what you love, not for what you hate.

Great movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
12 November 2004 | by reno_johnnySee all my reviews

Maybe not one of the best movies ever made, but certainly a true masterpiece of entertaining. It's a typical Roderiquez movie, but has a lot more fun added to it than his other pictures. It's made with a lot of pleasure and it's seen with a lot of pleasure. Even if you don't like rock & roll there's enough for everybody to go around. Especially the dialogs are great: over the top but on the cutting edge. And for the rock & roll fans: it has an outstanding soundtrack. It's only a shame that it hasn't been brought out on cd. And I was disappointed that Johnny Reno (the Sax player) doesn't make such cool music in real than in the movie. And all this is just my humble opinion.
