In the scene where the boys are siphoning gas out of the bully's car, there is a shot of the three bullies coming out of the front door of the house. One of them slips on the steps, but the camera cuts to another shot just before we would have seen what was going to be a MAJOR landing on his rear. See more »

This is one of the stupidest movies ever made. If you plan to view it seriously, I urge you not to watch it. If, however, you watch it solely for the entertainment value of its unintentional hilarity, it may be worth watching once--maybe.
There is hardly a single redeeming aspect of the film, except maybe the female character (there really is only one female character, except for the mother, who hardly counts as a character at all), because she is hot. Though the fact that she ends up with Gunther at the end of the movie diminishes this fact somewhat; she should have stuck with his little brother.
Other than that, the film is a disaster. The script is pandering, inane, cliché-ridden, and occasionally so mind-boggling stupid that you begin to wonder what the screenwriter was smoking when he/she wrote it. The acting is terrible--though the actors, to their credit, aren't exactly given a whole lot to work with. The music and cinematography are bland and unmemorable. The editing is competent--I guess.
When the best thing you can say about a movie is that the editing is competent, you know something's wrong.
