Movie Reviews

It's Finally Been Released on Video
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this flick on a movie channel back in the 80's and was shocked to find that it wasn't available on video until just recently. The casting for this film was tremendous. You will recognize several actors who went on to make it big in Hollywood many years after this film was made (1980).If you love vintage hot rods, you'll want to see this movie for this reason alone. The cruising scenes are brief, but they're great fun. You may also be interested in the great music in this movie.The premise of the movie is that a car club called "The Hollywood Knights" is having their hang-out (Tubby's drive-in) torn down by an association that is tired of their pranks. In addition, interest in the club is on the decline and one of its member's is headed for Vietnam. The guys in the club decide to have one last big night of pranks and fun. Newbomb Turk played by Robert Wuhl is the catalyst for the pranks and from "spiking" the punch, to pranks at the prep rally, you'll find yourself laughing hysterically at a movie that probably has the best adolescent humor along with "Fast Times at Ridgemont High.""
One of the FUNNIEST movies I've seen in my life!

"I've been waiting ever since the early 80's for this movie to come out for sale; it'll NEVER be mistaken as enlightened moviemaking but if you like low comedy you'll be rolling on the floor with this one. Inspired by the earlier "American Graffiti", this adaptation is played much more for laughs and tries not to take itself too seriously. The music is great, something for everyone who enjoys 60's Rock & Roll; and the cast includes several who went on to at least semi-stardom, such as Robert Wuhl (Arli$$), Tony Danza (Who's the Boss?), Fran Dreischer (The Nanny) and of course, Michelle Pfeiffer. Like "American Graffiti", there's also a serious side: one of the Knights is about to ship out for Vietnam the next day, the movie's way of saying that this was an age of innocence that was just about to change into what the Late 60's became. However, the main plot is that it's Halloween night, the drive-in's closing for good the next day, and tonight's the night to go all-out with cruising, playing pranks, and getting initiated into the gang! A HILARIOUS movie!"
Starring Michelle and Tony? Cut me a break!

"The real star of this movie is Robert Wuhl, whose Newbomb Turk character steals the show. This is the kind of movie that had an inexplicably short life in the first run theatres before trickling down to the local "buck-a-seat" houses. That was where I first saw Hollywood Knights, on a night when I was so bored that I took a chance on a no-name comedy and parted with my hard earned dollar. I've rarely recieved so much bang for my buck since. If you like this one, give it's fellow classics Spring Break and Porky's a chance also."
Classic comedy reigns!

""There is a man in a Major Domo outfit..." If you have seen this movie, you can easily finish this sentence. This classic mix of "low-brow" humor and early 60's ambiance is great fun. Look for Leigh French (formerly the Hippy hostess Goldie in the old Smother's Brothers Comedy Hour) as the society do-gooder pushing to get the local teen hang-out closed down once and for all. Robert Wuhl is outstanding as Newbomb Turk and Fran Drescher shines as his girlfriend. I have a VHS copy I play whenever I want a good laugh. The Hollywood Knights is a classic you'll want to watch over and over. I can't wait to get my DVD edition. Just thinking about it makes me want to launch into a refrain from "Volare"!"
