Product Description

Acclaimed director Robert Rodriguez delivers more action-packed thrills with Roadracers, the story of a rockin' rebel named Dude (David Arquette), racing through life with a fast car, a loud guitar, a sexy girlfriend (Salma Hayek) and a big mouth. But when a confrontation ends with deadly threats, Dude finds himself speeding head-on toward a showdown that will settle the score for good. With hot stars and an energetic style all its own, Roadracers is fast-paced entertainment that never slows down. Special Feature(s): Director's Commentary; 10-minute Film School with Robert Rodriguez

5.0 out of 5 stars agree: the coolest movie ever that nobody's seen Dec 27 2001
By A Customer
Even if this movie was made for TV it should have been released for the big screen. As it is nobody seems to know this gem. Insanely great music, Johnny Reno's My Mistake alone worth the price of the tape. Great characters like the Nixer and Dude. This movie has major cult potential if only people knew about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great JD Hommage - Nonstop Fun Dec 3 2001
I have seen this movie more than ten times and I never tire of watching it. It's got everything: humor, action, romance, Blaise Pascal's pensees (remember Nixer's French Fry/Human Condition analogy), and most of all, red hot rock and roll music. Rodriguez's films were lost on me after El Mariachi, but this little gem I cannot praise highly enough. Anyone looking for the songs from the film, check with Norton Records (their 1980s re-issue covers are all over Dude's garage).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool stuff Nov. 21 2001
By A Customer
Robert Rodriguez hits every corner with this ultra-cool sendup of '50's rebel movies. Cheap without looking cheap (except where Rodriguez intended it), this film is alternately chilling and hilarous. You can never tell when or where some totally outrageous sight-gag or outlandish bit of sarcasm will turn up, even at the most "serious" moments. Truly off-the-wall.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest, Fun Movies Aug. 6 2001
This wasn't a movie to change your mind or broaden your horizons. This was a great butt-whoopin of a good time! Robert Rodriguez is my all time favorite hero of a director, and I can't do anything but be wowed by his movies....

5.0 out of 5 stars The coolest movie ever that nobody's seen July 9 2001
Hey, I'm Dugg from Baltimore- this is the coolest movie ever-just for the small stuff and the little details. Dude Delaney is the epitome of cool. The underlying meanings beneath the meaningless story contain the rules of everything cool. It's more than a movie - it's a subtle masterpiece worthy of multiple studious watchings.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME! May 28 2000
Robert Rodriguez shows us that you don't need a fourtune, a major studio, or big name stars to make a memorable and utterly stunning film of this caliber. Rob goes for the rebel in all of us with this effective script and his signature WHAM BAM style of filming and editing. Rob gives us a great American masterpiece with a solid story and incredably on-the-point acting from Arquette and the rest of the cast. Most memorable are the fight scenes with the pounding LINK WRAY music that I can't seem to find in any record store! Look out for the ketchup bottle!
