[Reel 3] During scene between man in maroon jersey and boy in blue, after latter has swept objects off table, remove his response "Fuck, no" as he faces away from camera (6 mins).
[Reel 6] After boy on skateboard has crashed through window and Vietnamese man has been shot, reduce sight of his lying on ground bleeding and being held by wife (4 mins).
The cuts were waived in 2000, with an upgrade to a 12 rating. See more »
What a sweet movie. This movie just about wraps up the "rad" pop culture of the 1980's, and puts it into one film. The skateboarding is incredible, and it features Tony Hawk who developed into the #1 skater in the world. While this movie might not be realistic, it made me laugh all the way through. The best scene by far involves Tony Hawk and a Pizza Hut truck. Enjoy this movie and remember the 80's.
