Everything I'd want to sample from this (presumably awful) movie is in the trailer, right?

I'm guessing Clint Howard is the Johnny Drama to Ron's Vinny Chase.

That screeching tire noise is the Wilhelm Scream of car-chase scenes.

Roughy is mentioned, so it's referencing this.

First and best.

Ha ha!

Check out the original movie poster vs the DVD reissue.

I'd love to see the poor sap who shells out bucks on this thinking it is somehow part of the videogame franchise.

On the other hand, if any kid I know asks for 'Grand Theft Auto' for Christmas I know what I'm getting 'em.

'A chicken run with a whirly-bird!' Every film ever should have one of those.

I got as far as "You wanna pull over and fool around a little?" before cracking up.

I watched this on HBO when I was about 10 years old. Saw it at least twice, maybe more. So there.

Hopefully, somewhere up above, The Real Don Steele is smiling because this is getting noticed again.
