Storyline

Two punks from the big city, traveling across the country in a Volkswagen bug, embrace the western ethos when they must take revenge against a group of rednecks for killing their friend in this lighthearted road movie.

Trivia

The Sheriff has two Chicago patches on his arm. One is the city flag, the highest one on his shoulder with the city flag and the American flag crossed is the Class A (or dress) uniform patch of the Chicago Fire Department. An everyday uniform patch is similar but the flags are in a sky blue field, not white. See more »

Goofs

The end credits list a song by Faster Pussycat called "Number Off the Bathroom Wall" composed by "Taime Molvik." The song is actually just entitled "Bathroom Wall," and the composer's name should either be "Taime Downe" (his stage name) or "Gustave Molvik" (his birth name). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Milo: I'm so sick of doing this; I'm sick of waiting for the world to end.
Biscut: Me, too. Why don't we do something else for a change?
Grant: Yeah? Like what?
Biscut: Well, if we put our heads together, maybe we could figure something out.
Grant: My head just got stepped on. I can't think of nothing.
Milo: California! Let's move to California!
Biscut: I got a job. I got responsibilities.
Milo: Biscut, you're washing dishes in a shithole, brother. Personally, I think you could risk the career change.
