    From IMDB: “8 stuntmen were seriously injured during the filming of this movie due to lack of the implementation of safety regulations”

    Only 8?

    This thick slab of 80’s cheese includes a “Sam, they made the pants too long!” call-back to MST3K 814 – Riding With Death. I wonder, does that count as pandering? Whatever the case it’s all just slightly unwholesome, rather pointless good fun, and to quote The Hitchhiker’s Guide: “Mostly harmless”.

    I am thinking that movie roles for Erik Estrada kinda fizzled after he blew his right nostril off with that pistol.

    That sounds amazing! I would love the chance to cruise the ’80s on a skateboard right now.

    Given their taste for riffing the same movie several times in a row, they’ll probably get into it fresh off of Rad.
