‘Smokey Bites the Dust’ Review

Posted by On April - 22 - 2011
Hey everybody, the carsploitation/hixploitation extraveganza continues here on Varied Celluloid as we take a look at this 80’s action-comedy which is also featured on the Roger Corman Shout! Factory triple feature DVD. Although it is likely the weakest of the three films, it does have a very young William Forsythe! That’s worth something, right?

The Plot: Roscoe (Jimmy McNichol) is an adventurous youth who doesn’t like to play things safe and he spends his hobby-time instigating car chases with the local authorities. During the big homecoming celebration however, Roscoe takes things to a new level when he steals his friend’s exceptionally nice ride and also kidnaps the homecoming queen Peggy Sue Turner (played by Janet Julian) who soon takes a liking to the brash young man. Peggy Sue isn’t just any girl though, she is the daughter of the local police chief! Now, on the road, the chase is on! Roscoe has the sheriff chasing after him, Peggy Sue’s football star homecoming-date, Roscoe’s good friend who is after his borrowed car and nearly anyone else on the road who can give him a good chase. Will Roscoe find a way out of this situation before one of these parties catches up with him, or will he be forced to pay the price?
