Movie Info

Fran Drescher, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Tony Danza are the most notable aspects of this forgettable teen drama that features a gang of youths in a car club who decide to battle it out with the establishment in Beverly Hills. It seems their favorite haunt, the last drive-in restaurant in the neighborhood, has been forced to close. Their rebellion is marked by tactics that might be embarrassing to any serious rebels: they turn a high school banner into an X-rated statement, sabotage a police car, ruin a manicured garden, and urinate in a punch bowl. These shenanigans take place on Halloween in 1965, a time when practical jokes are usually in the hands of elementary school kids -- and that level of maturity is maintained here.

Critic Reviews for The Hollywood Knights

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The film derives more from American Graffiti than More American Graffiti did. But it's an unfocused copy without one original moment.

April 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Far from showing continued promise, Mutrux has now identified himself as a kind of untutored, remedical-school imitator of George Lucas.

December 18, 2015 | Full Review…

One horrendous film--a shapeless, formless mess with little story and even less sense.
