In the last shot of the film, as credits begin to roll and Ethan has finished singing his song, you can see several feet of the dolly track on the floor of the diner. One of the extras sitting in a booth even comes close to tripping over it. In the wide screen version of this film the dolly track is not visible. See more »

So So teen comedy
23 October 2002 | by DunnDeeDaGreatSee all my reviews

Slackers is a so so teen comedy. I mean the film has a few one liners and a couple of gross out parts but all in all it's a waste of time. Jason Schartzmen who made such a memorable debut in Rushmore is wasted, the same goes for Devon Sawa who made a splash in Final Desnation. For die hard teen movie fans only.
