Trivia

When Anton kills the two police officers, Pnub shouts out "Go, go Buffalo". This is a reference to a deleted scene in which Anton remembers the two police officers as "the head and ass of the school mascot, Go, go Buffalo" See more »

Goofs

When Anton pulls away after hitting Debi with the Ford, both hands can be seen on the steering wheel. See more »

Quotes

Mick: [to 911 operator] There is something wrong with my friend, I think he smoked some nutmeg or something.

Alternate Versions

Besides the profanity noted above, all scenes of drug use have been taken out on TV too. This makes the ending very odd (Anton mysteriously has smoke in his mouth but we never see where it came from). Some blood/gore has been taken out, and some nudity has been taken out too. See more »

I love this movie!
11 August 2004 | by Tenchi64589See all my reviews

What more can I say about this movie?

All I knew about it was that it had quite a few elements of teen comedy and that I've only seen the tail end of it a few times.

Now that I finally saw the whole thing, it's now one of my favorites!

It's a welcome change from most of the horror movies I've seen.

Great music, great acting, and gorgeous women (Specifically speaking, Jessica Alba)... what more do you want?

This is one of those movies that you can watch and understand it perfectly... whether or not you're stoned.

10 out of 10
