Film synopsis

Skidding onto DVD and exploding with new features – this is the ’80s Aussie classic that launched Nicole Kidman to fame!

The wheel-spinning adventures of three teenagers get complicated when they discover a box of stolen walkie-talkies left behind by a gang of bank robbers intended for illegal surveillance. PJ (Angelo D’Angelo THE BIG STEAL), Goose (James Lugton – GARAGE DAYS) and Judy (Nicole Kidman) decide to have a little fun at the crooks’ expense when they return to collect their stash. Bursting with energy and invention the trio is forced to put their biking skills to the test and lead chase, causing all sorts of mayhem across town including a spectacular escape down the Manly Waterworks water slides.

From acclaimed Ozploitation director Brian Trenchard-Smith (TURKEY SHOOT) with dynamic cinematography from Oscar® winner John Seale comes this fast-paced kids’ crime-caper, loaded with special features exclusive to this DVD release, including the illuminating documentary BMX Buddies featuring all-new cast and crew interviews.
