Instead of adhering to the norms of their South Central neighborhood, a group of skater boys opt to bus into Hollywood and Beverly Hills, where they attract local rich girls - and plenty of trouble with the police, jealous boyfriends, and nervous parents. Written by
What an outstanding movie. This is easily up there with KIDS if not better. I need to see it a few more times in order to say for sure. During the Q&A after the movie Clark admitted that the goal was to make a film more accessible to kids so that they actually get a chance to see his movies. This means no more flying semen or murdered grandparents. This is a story about kids "from the ghetto" who don't quite fit in in the hood, and definitely don't fit into mainstream whitebread America, but that's all okay with them cause they have their freedom, and they have each other. I applaud Clark on this one. If you're a fan of the gratuitous 17 and under sex scenes then look elsewhere, Clark get the sex scenes done this time without going over the top. They're actually there as part of the story and not in the film for shock factor. Bottom line, amazing flick, and I hope it gets mainstream distribution. Of all his films, this one has the best shot of actually getting decent box office exposure.
