Editorial Reviews

Put the pedal to the metal and burn rubber with the clutch-popping excitement of this digitally mastered supercharged version of Eat My Dust, starring Ron Howard. Young Hoover (Howard) is dying to impress Darlene. She’s into going fast, he’s into Darlene, but when they both get into a red-hot race car, the reckless fun accelerates into a trunkful of hot pursuits. They’re off on the open road for a tire-squealing, fender-bending adventure to who knows where — and all Smokey can do is eat their dust!

5.0 out of 5 stars A boy and his car. July 16, 2003
By A Customer
One fun thing to do with movies under the Roger Corman banner is to try to notice all the film school-y things in them. *Eat My Dust!* turns out to be an American B-movie hommage to Godard's *Breathless*, which itself was a French B-movie hommage to American B-movies. In this movie we're given the Godard-brand of existential, rebellious hero who's main aim is the pursuit of kicks. Granted, Ron Howard ain't no Jean-Paul Belmondo, but he'll do in a pinch. We're also given the exact-same type of Grade-A American b---h/goddess that Jean Seberg perfected in Godard's movie: but here, she has the added virtues of hot yellow short-shorts accompanied by thigh-high white boots. She can be counted on to take a powder when things start to become a drag. But director Charles B. Griffith adds a number of elements missing from *Breathless*, such as the insistence on creating an interesting cast of supporting characters (goofballs and wackos every one), as well as consummately executed scenes of slapstick action that's reminiscent of silent-film chase comedies. Although Griffith never really accomplished anything else as a director, he's brilliant here, starting with the hypnotic opening credits: the camera is atop a car's hood, giving us an unseen driver's POV as the car eats up the country miles in revved-up fast-motion. There are also some well-executed smash-em-ups: police cruisers sailing through the air; muscle cars barreling down a 500-foot hill with a 45-degree grade. The ending strikes a surprisingly bittersweet note. It turns out that Opie's afternoon of playing hide-and-seek from the cops will serve as an apprenticeship: awaiting him is the lonely, dangerous, but exciting life of the professional racer. But regardless of all that, the bitchin Camaro rolls on with the final credits, and that's the important thing. Altogether, *Eat My Dust* is yet another dim-witted masterpiece from the Corman Factory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good car chase movie. July 23, 2002
Ron Howard stealing a racing style 1967 Camaro and running away from the cops led by his own dad. Very funny and original, cool car. Hot chicks + fast cars + good casting = good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta have it in you car movie collection December 8, 2008
This is the movie I would tell my freind about as an adult,and he had never heard of it. Then one night at Holliwood vid I saw it in the vhs section. Man I was excited!! Couldn't wait to get it in the player. Well it wasn't as good as I had rembered. But that isn't the point. Dukes of Hazzards not as great as it was when we were kids, but you still have to watch it every once in awhile! Anyways you get to see Ron Howard with a full head of hair lol and I think his brother is in it to. Car chases and a cute girl. What more could you ask for! Buy it

This is merely another one of those many 70s car-chase films. It's fun & mindless and features some beautiful rural California locations. Plus, how can you go wrong with the likable Ron Howard?

The film was a box-office success for producer Roger Corman, which naturally led to the demand for a sequel. But Ron Howard didn't want money to perform in the sequel, he just wanted the opportunity to write and direct it (not to mention act in it). Thus came the hugely popular "Grand Theft Auto," Howard's first REAL stab at directing. The rest is history.

This flick is merely okay, nothing special; what makes it worth purchasing for any red-blooded male is the supremely gorgeous Christopher Norris (yeah, it's a woman not a man). She's got some incredible God-given curves, to say the least, and she shows them off well in her skimpy hot-pants!

Of course, if you're a "Brokeback Mountain" fan there's always Ron Howard. (LOL!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars 1969 Camaro March 1, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A neat little comedy, sometimes corney, starring a young Ron Howard who steals a stock car, a souped up 1969 Camaro. Great car movie if you like Camaros and speed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 70's car movie. April 7, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Early Ron Howard, portraying a kid wanting to get out of small town in middle America. Excellent car chase scenes, with lots of period cars of course. I bought the movie for all the cars, not the acting. I was not disappointed. Good car stuff for the money.
