I never professed to be a movie critic but I know what I like and have always enjoyed the old B movies for what they were, a time when the cars, girls and the occasional monster made for cheap cheesy entertainment, sorry but this short missed the mark with this old fart. HRP
I'm not sure what to say....
So I'll leave it at that!
Production quality? What production quality?
That's 15 minutes of my life I'll definitely have to try to make up somewhere else.
Thanks a LOT, Ryan.
I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
...cuz I had to pee.
Cute.........Loved both hot rods. It always amazes me though that someone can make a "hot rod" movie and refer to a Model A Coupe as a Roadster. I mean if this were an intentional faux pas written in for the little guy, why didn't the owner correct him instead of repeating it.? Fun to watch, hard to take very seriously. To your credit, Ryan, you did warn us.
Cragar steering wheel.
weak at best. you would think at the very least they would have cleared the modern cars out of the background shots. and found a 40 without tilt wheel.....
I kinda liked it, a little more effort would've made it more fun to watch!
I give the guy credit for trying.
And the new fangled light switches behind the kid eating breakfast, D'oh!
Just doesn't hold a candle to the old black & white B movies, the hot rods in this movie is what inspires many of us to this day.
As the old saying goes, when this movie was made I was just a twinkle in my daddy's eye! and it's stood up to the test of time. HRP
I liked it. But I also like, fart'en, whoppy cushions, boobies, and put'en baseball cards in my spokes. I'd give it 2 thumbs up. Cos that's all I've got.
I liked it for what it was,a play on old hot rod movies. kind of made me smile.
Come on guys........was this a "money-no-object", full feature, Cinemascope, surround sound stereo feature full of top name stars!?
No, just some having some fun!
Yep. Rough crowd. Probably like the original Star Trek, .... and Lost In Space though .. because it was so realistic. LOL
Thanks Ryan. Looks like the dad had fun with his kid. Their film. I get it. Entertained.
Take care .... Dad out. Sh#t to do and such.

I like watching the old B movies, just for old the cars.
Ryan knows we're just rubbing him.
It was kind of fun...lol.
Old men in the balcony...LMAO
Geez....couldn't find a road without double yellow lines?
i was doin ok until they got the rudolph crap into the script
On the plus side, one of those rides had a damn wicked idle...
That’s cheesy enough to sprinkle on your pasta!
It is a fun movie!
“ bring your sisters to the top of the hill, to pull the chocks”
Eugene is a damn pervert !! Lol
Good ol’ socials vs. Greasers vs. Rudolf story line ?!?
Yeah, after seeing that in the opening scene, you pretty much knew what you were in for!
Good intentions, just a little sloppy with the execution. Gotta give the guy credit for trying something in that style.
I just thought of something nice to say...........
The twins actually had the beginnings of acting chops.
That's all I've got that's "nice".
I usually don't open or respond to any of RYAN"S posts because quite frankly they are way over my head
& to deep, they actually give me a headache....................................................
