When they are selling the radios, a girl inquires "do you have any in a different color?". This is a reference to an Australian television program "The Inventors" (the precursor to The New Inventors (2004)) where one of the panelists was renowned for her queries about the colour range of new inventions (as well as whether any particular invention was safe for children). Her questions, "Does it come in any other colors?" and "Is it safe for the kiddies?", were often parodied on Australian television. See more »

This movie is perfect for a drunken video night at home. Nicole Kidman stars as one of the teenage BMX bandits and a check-out chick at the local supermarket. The kids come across a bunch of stolen walkie-talkies and get caught up with some "nasty" goons. Don't miss the classic going down the Manly waterslides on BMX bikes. Luv Nicole's perm! And the BMX bandits matching outfits! And the goons'"scary" halloween masks!
80's children classic!
A total stinker - but in the "it's so bad it's good" category.
Plus a must see for all those Nicole fans out there.
