Dangerous drivers are saved by Tom Hanks!
21 November 2005 | by SpuzzlightyearSee all my reviews

In this Sid Davis production, a young boy new to the town, is puzzled by why the kids don't accept him and his hot rodding ways. When he tries to get all the kids impressed by talking about it, they all turn away in disgust. Rather then parking one night in a abandoned business and listening to Kenny Loggins and dancing in protest, he actually goes to the kids an learns why the kids act in such a square fashion. One of the town kids you see, was killed while trying to beat a train. So Tom Hanks (yes, Tom Hanks, that's the character's name) arranges a hot rod track to be made. All the kids are so excited about this track that they arrange knight clubs that will all agree to drive slowly an keep their cars in running order and help out in their community. The hot-rodder is so won over by this show of hip-to-be-squareness that he runs off to prove he can be as nerdish as everyone else! A great, if slightly overlong movie. Bonus points: The many newspaper with screaming headlines but with the same stories on the remaining sections. Recommended!
