4.0 out of 5 stars From the guy who brought you The Mummy and Deep Rising! December 30, 2001
By Kate F.
Format:VHS Tape
Yup, this movie is the first to be written and directed by Stephen Sommers, famed writer/director of The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, Deep Rising, and more. That alone should tell you what to expect, because Sommers' sense of humor is present throughout this film. Mind you, he filmed it entirely with independent funding and so you can pretty much expect minimal special effects (almost none, to be honest), but it's definitely fun to watch.
The story is a rather forumla plot, though with a few twists that make it at least a little different. Melissa Hanson (played by the talented but largely unsung Loryn Locklin) is trying to raise money to save her high school from being closed down by the school board but no one will help her. Dylan Malone (Matt Lattanzi) is a smart-but-poor high school student who earns money by drag-racing. Together, he and Melissa hatch a plot to save the school by racing for cash on the school's dime.
But you don't watch this movie for the plot alone. The sense of humor--which is pure camp, and hilarious for it--is what really makes this film. (Listen for the same kid shouting "Knock it off, you butthead!" at every new scene in the school, for example)
If you like Stephen Sommers, you may like this movie. Trust me. :)

interesting little film about a high school rebel who race a chevelle for money (and his own ego); but then ends up helping out the high school that is about to be closed down by earning money for it instead of himself all the while falling in love with a goody goody choir girl pris type that suckered him into it. good movie!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome August 29, 2008
Format:VHS Tape
I thought this movie was awesome. It played well. I would definitely order again from Amazon.

I went to Cathedral in St Cloud. I think that is what made the movie more exciting for me also.

Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great High School movie December 22, 2008
Format:VHS Tape
I wish the movie companies would release more movies of the 80's. I am tired of all the jerks price gouging on movies on here. I love this show and haven't seen it in almost a decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie November 2, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
One of the best teen movies I've ever seen. Everyone in my house agrees on this movie. A real sleeper that should have been majorly promoted, A good story-line, great acting, and even the soundtrack is good. We have almost worn this movie out watching it so often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie, good for car and racing lovers August 31, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
I can watch this movie every day and never get tired of it. I love to watch it and see how a small time drag racer, with little money to have no money and win the his way to keep his school open and to also win a scholarship to go to college. This action packed action movie is one of my favorite. Many great actors play star in this movie, and dylan has the fastest car, but things get hectic when his car is destroyed. Then when the fatman think he`s won, dylan, mellissa find fast freddy(Principal) has the 57 Chevy for the Twin city run, and time ticks as dylan beat the fatman. Sit back and enjoy this action packed movie.
