One of the best movies ever! No kidding!
23 May 2018 | by nemanjacSee all my reviews

I have watched the movie Wheels last night and I am still wondering why this movie is not in the IMDB top 250. Ok, low budget, but still, we have movies like Clerks, and that movie has a cult status. The film is so complex and well structured, the actors are memorable, the music is well done... everything about this movie is how it supposed to be in one all time movie classic. Mickey and Drake, the main characters of the movie can easily become one of the favorite movie couples ever, like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Please watch this movie, and spread the word. Wheels are.. just great!
