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. :)
IT REMINDS ME OF MY TEENAGE YEARS GROWING UP
WITH MUSCLE CARS
Just plain fun. Not on dvd as of this rating. Wished it was.
I went to Cathedral in St Cloud. I think that is what made the movie more exciting for me also.
