      Audience Member Brilliantly written and skilfully directed with a cast of then-unknowns, Rip-Off is the definitive 'youth' movie - a hidden gem that never really got the credit it deserved. Uproaringly hilarious at times and painfully poignant at others, it's a remarkable study of the things that young people do for affirmation. Don Scardino stars - he now diredcts 30 Rock and it also includes the brilliant Mike Kukulewich and Toronto sportscaster Peter Gross Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member From the same team that delivered the all-time Canadian classic GOIN DOWN THE ROAD. Follows four Toronto high school seniors and their attempts to find anything to identify with--film, rock band, drugs, girls, commume, etc. Provides an interesting glimpse of Canadiana from that era. Shamelessly released to video in 1987 as VIRGIN TERRITORY with a misleading box cover suggesting a teen sex film. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Canadian film about four high school guys trying to figure out what to do after graduation. Will they become filmmakers? No. Will their rock band make it? No. Will they go to university? Looks doubtful.

The barn with the cows and the sluty milk maids, And The Kids Wet Dream in the forest This is a rilly QT show ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I disagree with the other reviewers, i found this movie hilarious. Sword fights, sex, and naked women....you cant go wrong with that. It is something to watch when you want a good laugh, i highly recommend it to anyone who likes movies with a good sense of humor and a dirty mind. I guess i can see why people relate it to an american pie, but i dont think thats a bad thing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
