Cruisin' High Reviews:

Sure, it's a tiny silly, but the movie stands out far beyond another films of the age-old "juvenile delinquent" genre. Don't even think about sordid campiness here, because this is the true thing! It is dramatically interesting, and there's enough crude action to cause mass hysteria.. Although it actually pales by comparison of today's movies on a higher standard, the message on teenage violence still delivers to this day. As it is, the film remains fun and entertaining.


Saw this film one hot August day in Seattle in '76. Was drawn by the lurid advertisement and the cheap matinee price. Instead of the chain wielding, snarling,figure on the one-sheet imagine how surprising it was to search out the lead actor was a skinny, blond-haired, blue-eyed cute boy. The entire film is clearly awful, the lead actor wouldn't slash muster in a high-school production and the others aren't much better including Steve Bond, latter of General Hospital and Canadian Doug McGrath of the classic Goin' Down the Street six years earlier. Understand that lead actor David Kyle became a missionary, a finished about-face from his role here.The film was no better than the usual drive-in fare being produced at that time but at least it's storyline, about high school gangs was a tiny more 'meaty' than the usual teen hi-jinks comedies of the time. A guilty pleasure? Not really, but at least it may have been trying to convey something about high school violence and dysfunctional families. Or not.Incidently this film was released on video under the game Cruisin' High which made it sound like either the typical teen hi-jinks comedy or set in a gay high school. Either method it was misleading since very tiny of the action takes zone in a high school and the cruising involves gang rumbles.May keep some interest to those who love films of the time and the differing attitudes of today.


Wow - this film is unbelievable. The tone of the entire thing is so Jeckyl and Hyde - you have to laugh. The movie opens with grave quotes from law enforcement experts on how teen gangs are the "corrosive acid to our society" and so on, and then the film opens with a bunch teen gang members driving around to a song so non-threatening, so soft, so flaccid that it is unintentionally hilarious. The song "Baby, Slow Down" sounds like soft rock that even Firefall wouldn't sing.But the greatest part is the lead role - this guy is supposed to be this dangerous, seething guy capable of rape, murder, etc. and the "actor" who plays Cat looks like he could be singing Godspell or Joseph & The Nice Technicolor Dreamcoat. He's blonde, blue eyed and slightly effeminate - so its a riot when he's threatening black drug dealers or knife wielding Mexicans - this is the type of film where some of the supposed high schoolers are played by folks who look thirty (like the guys in shower who are knifed). One interesting side note - a young John Ashton plays a high school coach who might have "seen something" - he's easy the greatest actor in the movie (and there is plenty of terrible acting) but Ashton went on to large hits like Beverly Hills Cop (he's Judge Reinholds, grumpy partner) and Midnight Run (where he's the sleazy bounty hunter competing with DeNiro). The movie is filled with wimpy guys doing Grease talk, mixed in with Bowery Men and yet some harsh violence. A mess. A weird mess.
