Trivia

The game Miles is playing on the computer is the original DOOM, which was released in 1993. DOOM, along with its predecessor Wolfenstein 3-D (made by the same company), popularized the first-person shooter genre and helped pioneer 3D graphics. By 1999, however, it was already very outdated.

Goofs

While peanut butter has numerous health benefits including protein and monounsaturated fats, processed peanut butter often contains partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats) and high amounts of sugar and calories. This was well known in the 90s. Compared to pizza and M&M's, it a healthier alternative, but still not a good choice for health-conscious Lanny. See more »

Good Good Good
24 September 1999 | by LittleRascal-15See all my reviews

I liked it! Loved it! It's a great movie about teammwork and friendship. The P.U.N.K.S. is about five kids, leader Drew, overweight Lanny, con artist Johnny, nerd Miles, and tomboy Samantha. The P.U.N.K.S. which isn't a gang or anything P.U.N.K.S. stands for to Protect the Underdog with Nerve, Knowledge, and Strength. PUNKS, get it? Anyways, Drew's father works for CRAP Crow Resources And Protection. HIs father (Randy Quaid) is making an Augmentor, it powers up the nervous system to make one strong. Drew is always let down by his father by broken promises, so for his birthday he invites Drew and Miles to the company to hang out. Miles somewhat accidentally gets into the files, but cant get a password. That's where Johnny comes in. They use Drew's garage where his father use to work for CRAP as there headquarters, you can get into the files and everything. They get into the files and find out that Crow's assisstant has changed the Augmentor, and if u keep it on you for 20 minutes 9 out of 10 chances it will fry your whole nervous, and if you have a heart condition, which Drew's father has, it could kill you in 5. So they decide to steal the Augmentor, but CRAP has mega security. That's where Johnny's cousin Samantha comes in. She is the expert breaking and entering person. They steal it successfully BUT Crow has a double. I'm not going to tell the whole movie, rent it and watch. I give P.U.N.K.S. 8.5/10!
