      David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...an unusually tedious chase movie... Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 21, 2008 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures just a dumb little car chase movie Rated: 1.5/5 Oct 9, 2007 Full Review John J. Puccio Movie Metropolis ...noteworthy mainly because a part of the deal to make it allowed Ron Howard the chance to direct his own next picture. Rated: 4/10 Sep 23, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      Solomon M Eat My Dust is film I am very fond of. The stunt driving teen rebel comedy is a winner. It is also a great Halloween theme film and as a teen I would drive my 1974 Chevy SS on the back roads with a tape that had "Eat My Dust" theme and other hip bluegrass songs on it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/29/20 Full Review Audience Member Low-budget car chase movie gets by on low-grade humor and a fast pace. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I would venture to say that I liked, but didn't love this story of Ron Howard as a young man, obsessed with speed and driving his hotrod. I think the story about a guy stealing a stock car to impress a girl might've put me off, as it involves a ton of property damage along the way for people who have noting to do with him trying to get laid, so I couldn't root for this asshole, as I might rather see him in jail given his idiotic behavior and lack of concern for others. It's a watchable flick, but maybe others will get more out of ti than I did. Rental. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member A very enjoyable bad movie with almost no plot, just a bunch of car chases and crashes. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member There's whiskey and blood on the pavement. Darlene is the hottest girl in town and Hoover has obtained the hottest car in town. Hoover will do anything to impress Darlene so they go on a wild ride of fun and breaking the law. Things get hot, but misinterpreted. There is an obvious short term connection based on the ongoing events, but can Hoover turn this into a long term relationship? "I'm not impressed by reckless driving." Charles Griffith, director of Forbidden Island, The Little Shop of Horrors, Up from the Depths, Smokey Bites and Dust, and Wizards of the Lost Kingdom II, delivers Eat My Dust. The storyline for this picture is fairly straightforward and reminded me for Grand Theft Auto (also with Howard) or The van. The cast includes Ron Howard, Clint Howard, Charles Howerton, and Christopher Norris. "Just because I have a stupid name doesn't mean I'm not worth going with." I am a huge grindhouse movie fan and have been dying to see this for some time. I finally got around to watching this and felt it was just okay (a little like Two-Lane Blacktop). This isn't a classic like Vanishing Point but is a fun movie for the time (more like The Van). Overall, I recommend seeing this if you're a fan of the muscle car or grindhouse genres. "They are not dangerous." Grade: C+ Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member a car chase movie that is amazingly dull Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
