Goofs

When the Dad crashes his big rig truck, the shot inside the cab reveals a woman to his right with a lit cigarette in her hand. She grabs him on the right shoulder and then he swerves to the left. Don't know if she is giving him a cue to swerve or she is the "hidden" girlfriend. We never see her again though! See more »

I enjoyed this.
14 March 2001 | by marcfantozziSee all my reviews

I thought this flick was great fun. I thought the acting was pretty decent and not as bad as other people say. Sure, the three leads are all teen idols, but I am not going to knock their performances because of that. Still, I continue to enjoy this flick, and always will
